Good thing the food's so delicious at Hibiscus, since the portions stretch the limits of the word gargantuan. A baked crab dip app at this New American eatery could easily feed four, while the prime strip "brick" weighs in at an impressive 18 ounces. But the cooking isn't nearly as ham-handed as the brutish sizing might suggest: The menu features an unparalleled lamb osso bucco, delicate ceviche and satisfyingly crunchy tempura-battered onion rings.

The first taste of the baked Dungeness crab dip provoked a moment of quiescence. The silence, short-lived, was followed by ravenous arm wrestling for more. The appetizer dip, served with shards of unleavened bread—think matzo par excellence—was a... More »
This much is obvious: Nick Badovinus wasn't long for the Consilient Restaurants world. As founder Tristan Simon expanded his little Henderson Avenue fiefdom (Fireside Pies, Hibiscus, Cuba Libre, The Porch) into the exurbs, Badovinus' role as... More »
Went here on a very generous gift certificate from a friend. Everything we had was delicious! My budget could only afford a dinner like this once a year, but well worth it. I got the black grouper that was a Chef's special and my husband got the duck which he loved. We got a mac & cheese side by kitchen error, which was so good with a crusty top. Service was great. No complaints!
There's a reason why, shortly before this writing, Rudy Mikula was poached from Nove Italiano by Consilient Restaurants to become wine and beverage director for Hibiscus, among other Consilient duties. No surprise. Mikula is a walking comfort zone, a wine geek whose easy style and bone-dry wit melts inhibitions, making diners susceptible to Mikula's unique brand of vino evangelism. Listen to him. He plumbs and probes for the world's great sacramental blessings like the best of them. He'll... More »
Forget rare, medium rare, medium well, well or soot. The true color of steak in Dallas is jade. We're jaded by these slabs of meat, by the temples and ranches that arise in their honor. Pity the steers; envy the cardiologists; be awe-stricken by the steak-house glut; pity us. This is why it was inevitable that the best steak would not come from a steak house but from some other food-purveying species--one that is trying to get famous with macaroni and cheese. Hibiscus has steak. Big steak.... More »
Like fried calamari, crab cakes are the ubiquitous foodstuff of contemporary dining--though most times they seem more at home in a mattress than on a dinner plate. Too often, crab cakes are little more than Underwood Deviled sandwich spread/Shake 'N' Bake hybrids. Not so with Hibiscus' crab cakes. For starters, chef Nick Badovinus uses crushed Ritz crackers. Second, the crabs are loose and chunky instead of puréed and cemented. This may not sound good, but trust us, it's essential.... More »
You can do whatever you want to fries. You can pour industrial Velveeta on them and blast them with bacon bits; you can serve them with 14 varieties of Wishbone; you can braid them with beads of French's and Heinz; or you can cut them as thin as thong string, dust them with herbs and call them frites. But we like them Hibiscus simple: thin-cut, crisp, greaseless, sprinkled with parsley (if you must) and pebbled to hell and back with sea salt. Serve them on a white cloth napkin in a porcelain...
