Post dessert of cookies.

Don’t get me wrong, this was a very good meal.  But compared to the meal we had last year at  John Tesar’s other, now closed restaurant, Spoon, this was fairly meh.  There are literally a trillion other fine steakhouses in Dallas and, unless I am willing to buy an once or two of their 240 day dry aged beef*, there was little here to compel a return visit.

 

*I was not.
