Well, even though the James Beard people persist in forestalling an acceptance speech by Chef Sharon Hage (FIVE nominations!)... we are all winners here, by her presence at the forefront of Dallas dining. I will be heading back to York Street very soon, but in the meantime - a look at a winter lunch I enjoyed a few months ago:
Perusing the wonderful menu with a little White Burgundy (surprise).
^ Soft Poached Duck Egg, with Polenta, Roast Local Chile, Corn Truffle, Queso Fresco.
^ Lobster Salad, "Lemon-y" Avacado & Endives; THE best Hummus in town - she must put crack in it.
^Scottish Game Ragu, with Risotto Rosso; Sautéed Monkfish Liver, Texas Sweet Lemon-Caper Brown Butter, Parsnip Puree. Ankimo is my favorite thing... and this dish frickin' slayed me.
We wrapped it up with some Bread Pudding and Tea. Lunch at York Street is served Wednesdays only. A winner, for sure.
