814: A Texas Bistro
This modest bistro serves food that’s fresh, simply prepared, and delicious. The menu changes weekly to reflect what’s seasonal and available locally, but there’s always a hand-cut filet, some form of seafood, and a reliable mixed salad (which we love, packed as it is with field greens, cherry tomatoes, pancetta, Parmesan, and red onion, with a bright citrus vinaigrette good enough to drink). Our prime rib was juicy, tender, and precisely cooked; the salmon was perfectly sautéed; and the duck breast was fork-tender and appropriately rare. The herb farro made us believe in ancient grains. The wine list is good, and the soufflé-light chocolate bread pudding served with gelato is not to be missed.
