Nice guests, right?

Four Sisters Cafe

At an early preview of his Four Sisters Cafe, in Richardson, owner Dale Wamstad allowed that his new upscale casual concept in Richardson will open “probably sometime next week.” Four Sisters takes its name from a diptych that hangs over the fireplace in the center of the restaurant. The paintings are said to depict Wamtad (in drag), sided by four “old media” female restaurant critics who influenced the restaurant scene in Dallas.

Wamstad founded the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse concept in New Orleans in the late 80s then teamed with Dee Lincoln to expand the concept in Dallas.

Though the menu hasn’t been finalized, here’s what Wamstad and managing partner Robert Brown have planned.

    Love the place …. And Dale & family. Fired employees should not vent frustrations. Ive seen Dale go overboard helping staff.

    I just came here by accident on this website, looking for a completely different four sister’s cafe — and I’ll be honest, after looking at the menu, and the prices for the listed food – I’m not in the least bit impressed. And the menu is VERY limited – which in all aspects hurts the restaurant. There’s only so much to try and it looks as if it is a constant and not a changing menu. That doesn’t help entice foodies to a restaurant. Cut back on the non-interesting, yet trying to be “eclectic” decor and vamp up the menu, add more items, dump the sushi (really, sushi?) and lower the prices.

    Restaurant may fly with a few changes but as it is, I’d say shelf-life is very limited. And not surprisingly.

    The Kitchen Manager, who wrote earlier at this site, should count himself lucky that his name is not attached to the food. It is bland and lack luster and the menu needs work. The service was great, but without good food you can’t have a great restaurant.

    Good try, Dale, but Four Sisters is a miss not a hit!

    WE WISH YOU THE VERY BEST, AND WILL NEVER FORGET THE GREAT TIME YOU SHOWED US WHEN WE VISITED DALLAS SEVERAL YEARS AGO.

    Sounds like someone is upset because they got fired. You’re a petty person

    Dale is a horrible individual. Where his highest value is his own self-loathing. He can sit in a quails nest and rub plum sauce all over himself for all I care. Some may admire his cut throat style, as he bleeds out the people that help him and then leaves them in his wake. I am one of his latest victims. I am a hard working Kitchen Manager, who gave everything to help Four Sisters Cafe when they needed it most. My thanks was a termination and 1 weeks pay. I did not even get to witness the grand-opening that I helped to make possible. A bit of advice, Stay away from this and everyone of Mr Womstad projects. Do not Take a job from him. And unless you like loosing your money do not invest in his restaurants. Just ask his previous investors what they got out of it!
