Chef Tim Love describes his Lonesome Dove as "urban Western cuisine."
Amuse bouche -- watermelon granita.
Elk sausage sliders, seared foie gras, blueberry jam ($14); kangaroo carpaccio nachos, avocado salsa, habanero-fig demi-glace ($12); rabbit-rattlesnake sausage, spicy Manchego rosti, crème fraîche ($15).
Roasted garlic-stuffed beef tenderloin, Western plaid hash, Syrah demi-glace ($35).
Rocky Mountain elk ribeye, spring vegetable ragu, crispy potatoes ($41).
Fresh Mexican doughnuts with cajeta, chocolate, and blackberry sauces ($10).
Goat cheesecake with Concord compote and almond tuille ($10).
It's not surprising that Chef Love defeated Iron Chef Morimoto in Battle: Chiles. The man knows his way around spice. There was no lack of flavor this evening!
Lonesome Dove will please any meat lover. Put it on your to-do list when in Fort Worth.
