Dallas Observer's Description

The famous Abacus chef turns his attention to more common fare, such as catfish and fried chicken-which is kind of like asking an accomplished concert violinist to play a fiddle tune. When he pulls it off, though, results are thoroughly satisfying. Polished service and a standout setting.

    Kent Rathbun does it again...his creations never cease to amaze me! This place has excellent food, exceptional service and offers outstanding wines. The decor is quite lovely and cozy. For the vegans/vegetarians - let your server know and the chef will create something just for you!!

  • Tanner P. on 08/15/09

    Get the fried green tomatoes appetizer... they're like a freaking dessert.

  • Jim P. on 07/16/11

    Teresa is THE best waitress.

  • Dallas Observer on 09/17/13

    The little chick is served with maple-syrup gravy. It’s the perfect combination of salty and sweet.

  • Lindsey C. on 01/21/12

    Well thought out menu with a solid combination of flavors that come through in each dish. Macaroni and mussels are a must.

  • Catherine S. on 01/19/12

    Special offers Monday to Thursday.
