The Grove was launched a few years ago as a self-professed culinary experiment, with a corresponding rotation of chefs (it seems the most recent is a keeper). Sporting a barbecue joint, an indoor-outdoor upscale cafe, an amphitheater, a first-rate bar with craft beer and cocktails, and decor straight out of a Lewis Carroll novel, the restaurant seems to have finally come to terms with its eclectic self. In a celebratory mood, we enjoyed our recent evening at the Grove, starting with a board resplendent with Texas meats and cheeses, crostini, pickled peppers, and fig jam. Hands down the hit of the evening was the candied-pecan-crusted salmon, with peach butter and a spinach salad with shallots, apples, cranberries, and some bacon tossed in for good measure. We also loved the beef Wellington, with its Boursin cheese and duxelles (a mixture of finely chopped mushrooms, shallots, and herbs) wrapped in a light, golden pastry. Check out the live music on the weekends, particularly the Tuxedo Cats.
