Spoon Bar & Kitchen

8220 Westchester Drive Dallas, TX 75225 | Park Cities |

Location Description:

Chef John Tesar's latest culinary project, Spoon Bar & Kitchen, resides in Preston Center, directly across from Hopdoddy Burger Bar. The dinner menu offers raw caviar, oyster and crudo options, salads, pasta (including house-made fusilli with red wine braised octopus served with bone marrow and lobster ravioli), a ton of fish options and a few items not from the sea, including a 40-ounce porterhouse, roasted poussin and vegetable risotto). For those looking to try it all, there's an eight-course chef's tasting menu. Their lunch menu, like their dinner menu, is ambitious and includes a large variety of salads; king crab Cobb salad, a lobster salad with orange-dusted lobster, braised artichokes and wild watercress and a kale Caesar with prawns. Other lunch options include black truffle gnocchi served with Dungeness crab and sweet vermouth sabayon, squid ink pasta, lobster pot pie -- and there's even a burger.
