Veteran chef-restaurateur Avner Samuel has resurrected Nosh once again, at the nexus of Preston Hollow and the Park Cities. It’s a handsome spot, with turquoise chairs and polished wood tables, and the eclectic menu hops the globe. Besides southern European and Middle Eastern dishes, you can get mac and cheese with truffles and Avner’s tortilla soup from the eighties. The Twelve Variety Mediterranean Maza Platter for Two included a delicious black hummus (which can also be ordered separately) and a bland baba ghanoush. A simple special of marinated Spanish white anchovies with strips of roasted red pepper made a nice, lighter starter. Pan-seared chicken with herb butter wowed us with its crispy, brown skin and juicy, savory meat; the addition of flavorless black truffle shavings was harmless, but why bother? Crispy Parmesan pommes frites made a great accompaniment. Za’atar-crusted seared ahi tuna was perfectly cooked to order and served with airy dollops of mild avocado puree. For dessert, we shared pretty quenelles of milk chocolate–cardamom ice cream, enhanced with ground halva, sea salt, and pistachio brittle.
