Dining Guide

Flora Street Cafe

Fare from Flora Street Cafe in Dallas.

Stephan Pyles still dazzles at this Arts District gem. From the dramatic decor to the seasonal, fancifully plated dishes, the experience is mesmerizing. Throughout a meal of unexpected ingredients and exciting flavors, we felt we were taking in a performance. Our appetizer, smoked steelhead trout ceviche, was a still life of thin, sashimi-like fish slices surrounded by a spiral of wasabi cream; sliced, tart kumquats; chunks of plantain and hearts of palm; a jammy mound of pineapple tomatillo; and caviar-like orbs of finger-lime pulp. Halibut cloaked in a white mole sauce came flanked with tender fava beans, topped with delicate shoestring potatoes and fresh chives. The many parts of the pistachio mousse dessert resembled a sculpture of sea shells clustered on the ocean floor, almost—but not quite—too pretty to eat.
