Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas, Texas, announces the redesign and reopening of a new signature casual restaurant – LAW – featuring a bold taste of Texas using the finest ingredients sourced from the Lone Star State.
Scheduled to debut in April 2016, LAW Restaurant, which stands for Land, Air, and Water, will have a robust menu of nostalgic favourites offering fresh poultry, meats, and fish sourced directly from Texas farms, fisheries and ranches. The restaurant, a fun yet sophisticated Texas chic environment, will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch. Featured dinner items will include tomahawk bone-in rib eye steak, BBQ Berkshire pork rib tower, A Bar N Ranch wagyu flank steak, Shiner Bock and sweet onion soup, whole beer can chicken, stuffed quail and chorizo-cornbread waffle, Copper Shoals Farms red fish, homestead grits, and Amelias Farm tomato and burrata cheese salad with Texas olive oil. The dessert menu will feature Texas bourbon bread pudding and bitter chocolate molten cake, among other Texas classics.
At the helm of the kitchen is Chef de Cuisine Jonathan Rivera, a culinary pro when it comes to creative and heartfelt food creation. Rivera, a Four Seasons veteran since 2003, supports the state’s farmers, ranchers and fishermen to provide the highest quality dishes for all appetites. Rivera considers the restaurant to be “just what the community needs.” By leading and not following, LAW stands out with Four Seasons DNA and simple, diner-friendly menus that highlight quality and are easy to understand.
The LAW wine program, run by master sommelier James Tidwell, will feature a hefty list of wines from the state of Texas including Brennan Vineyards Viognier, Pedernales Tempranillo, Kiepersol Estates Vineyards Merlot and Fall Creek Meritus to name a few. Tidwell, who is also the co-founder of TEXSOM, has led the Resort towards James Beard Award nominations for Outstanding Wine Program five times from 2011 to 2015, while he himself was a semifinalist for Outstanding Wine, Beer or Spirits Professional in 2015. His carefully selected list for LAW features wines for all levels of interest including specific sections titled Cool Kids, Popularity Contest and Mature Wines. Leave room for dessert, as the wines in this category make the perfect pairing with LAW’s signature sweet offerings.
“This concept evolved organically,” said Christof Syré, executive chef of Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas. “The culinary team knew we needed a fresh new concept that met the needs of our community, thus we began the process of a complete restaurant transformation. We are extremely lucky to have ownership that cares about the property’s advancement in the dining scene and were willing to support the team’s idea for LAW as the new signature restaurant.”
Looney & Associates, designers of the new restaurant, feature dark hard wood floors, rich leathers and suedes throughout the space, along with a colour palette of neutrals, camel and mahogany. Custom lighting, Texas artwork, wall décor and furnishings will complement the design, as well as offer up a native and comfortable feel in communal lounge and dining areas.
