chef's Rico Torres and Diego Galicia are teaming up with The Granary's
Tim Rattray to serve up an eight-course tasting menu set for July 10 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
For one night only, guests can try dishes that mesh the renowned regional Mexican cooking of Mixtli and the seasonally-driven barbecue of The Granary. The menu is said to celebrate the flavors and terroir of Tejas. Both restaurants have soaked in the spotlight as of late. The Granary, which opened in late 2012, once again secured a spot in Texas Monthly's
Top 50 Barbecue Joints in Texas list this summer. Meanwhile, Diego Galicia and Rico Torres opened Mixtli (Nahuatl for cloud) in mid-2013 inside a boxcar at The Yard on McCullough. The chefs garnered national attention this year with a coveted spot on Food & Wine's
Best New Chefs list for their imaginative progressive menus that change every 45 days.
All three chefs are known for their methodical plating and beautiful flavors so a dinner of this caliber probably won't come around that often.
Tickets are priced at $125 per person. Reservations
are required and seating is limited.
