Stephan Pyles, who has long wowed Dallas with his innovative cuisine, lends his expertise here at Sustenio, where lavish dishes are served in a stylishly upscale dining room. We enjoyed the delicate fritto misto of shrimp and calamari topped with a wonderfully astringent little salad. Among entrées, the tandoori-style salmon with root vegetables and za’atar far outclassed the lamb shank sous vide; the latter was just too bold and chunky to benefit from the gentle sous vide preparation (furthermore, it was served in a bowl, not on a plate, making it difficult to cut and eat). Overall, though, this is easily the classiest dining room on the north side, blending elegant design with inspired cuisine to make any evening there memorable. (2/15)
