Eating Oak Cliff: Lucia

Synopsis Wow!  This place is in Dallas?
Starters
  • Salumi Plate – salumi is essentially Italian charcuterie. The plate consisted of lardo, chicken liver pate, pork belly, truffle salami and a pistachio pate.  The meal could have ended here and I would have been in heaven.
  • Butternut Squash Soup – also nearly perfect.  This creamy soup was finished with fried sage leaves and brown butter.
Entrees
  • Bershire Porkchop with cabbage.  Perfectly seared and seasoned porkchop.
  • Duck breast with a porcini and foie gras peverada.  A perfectly cooked medium rare duck breast with and equally perfect crisp skin.
Dessert Cheese plate -- Gorgonzola Dolce, Pecorino Toscano & Robiola with almonds and quince mostarda.
What I Liked What’s not to like.  The food is awesome and the staff is professional and inviting.  Seriously, is this place really in Dallas?
What I Didn’t Like They don’t have a full bar.  A pre-meal cocktail would have made the evening perfect.  But this is merely nit-picking.
