Haper's is from Milkshake Concepts, the same folks behind Vidorra, Stirr, Serious Pizza, Sky Rocket Burger and Citizen. This spot serves a globally-inspired menu while focusing on local ingredients. What that results in is a menu with foie gras potstickers ($19), Mexican street corn pizza ($17), a Wagyu burger ($24) and a long list of steaks and chops with proud prices.
The star of the night was the pizza: A thick, bouncy, flavorful crust lays the foundation for success with any choice you go with. But the Bombay chicken tikka is one you should try ($22). A gently spicy tikka buttermilk dressing is topped with chicken, grape tomatoes, red onion and jalapeño. There’s a slight sweetness balanced by a little bite from the seedless slices of jalapeño. The combination will make you change your plan of having one slice to snagging another.
For entrees, there’s a Chilean, farm-raised sea bass with spicy tomato and braised green lentils. There's also a ribeye with chimichurri ($85) or the double-cut pork chop with green mole-infused pork jus ($42). If those just sound too basic for you, you can splurge on the sharable Texas Wagyu tomahawk with miso compound butter for $195.
