Fixe Southern House ~ "Foodie" Friday 9/28/18

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

I've got a real treat in store as a recommendation for this week-end for your dining pleasure. This downtown restaurant takes southern cooking to the next notch and will definitely leave you looking forward to your next visit.  Want to have a special evening with friends?  Give them a call and make a reservation. The UT game is Saturday afternoon at 2:30 so you'll still have plenty of time to enjoy this experience!




If you're from the South, these Southern classics will take you back to that feeling of your most memorable Sunday supper.  If you're not, you'll wish you were by the end of the evening after Chef James Robert elevates his menu with new and exciting flavors of the South.  Each dish he prepares may sound familiar, but, they've been infused with surprising flavors at in his modern style. The open kitchen gives diners a front row seat to all that is going on as Chef Robert and his team assure you a memorable evening.  Have a seat in one of their intimate dining rooms, or, how about right at the chef's table?


Here's a sample of the menu:

From the Small Bites "Starting off" menu - Smoked Trout Dip made with horseradish, buttermilk, smoked trout roe and served with Carolina gold rice crackers...Shrimp & Smoked Oyster Gumbo - with blue crab, andouille sausage, okra and chicken fat rice...and Grilled Shrimp with white beans, ham shank, arugula and horseradish.  The entree "Something More" menu has Blackened Red Snapper with rock shrimp, bones, marrow, toasted farro, butternut squash and hot 'n sour nage...Duroc Pork Shoulder with potlikker pinto beans, mustard greens and jalapeno-kale emulsion...and...Lobster & Crawfish Pot Pie with Maine lobster, Louisiana Crawfish, mushrooms and sweet corn béchamel.   


On the dessert "Sweets" menu - there's Chocolate Truffle Cake with wheatberry, caramel and salted pretzel ice cream, Brioche Donut with vanilla bean custard, sunflower seed streusel, preserved fruit and honey ice cream and Carrot Cake Tres Leches with candied carrot jam, pineapple and goat milk ice cream.

Good morning, Dorie...  the chocolate truffle cake sounds amazing! As for the rest, I don't eat seafood or pork, so I'd need to just have two helpings of the cake.

I saw the chef's name and knew he was from LA! The chefs from there always seem to be a level least! Everything sounds wonderful on the menu and I'm sure it tastes even better.

Another great presentation! Happy Sunday, Dorie!
