Located in the Knox-Henderson area of Dallas, Iron Chef America Winner Chef Rathbun's cuisine will not disappoint. Don't miss our signature dish Lobster Shooters. You will also find prime beef, fresh fish flown in daily and much more on the ever changing, innovative menu. Monday through Thursday you can order the 6 or 9 course Chef's Tasting Menu, which can also be paired with wines from our award wining wine list.<br /><br><br><br />For parties of 8 to 11, you can dine at the Chef's Table. Come early and enjoy The Bar at Abacus. We also offer Kent Rathbun Elements, a line of scratch products for the home chef. See you soon!

Savor is an American gastropub. The focal point will follow true to the concept of gastropubs, where the focus is quality of food, but will be refined with creative offerings, in a Fun and energetic environment. The menu is designed to offer meals as wholesome and fresh as they are appetizing, artistic expressions. <br /><br />In addition to enjoying the regional and international influence present throughout the menu, guests may complement their meals with selections from the wine bar. The wine bar offers and impressive and navigable list of wine by the glass or bottle, as well as signature cocktails, and micro brewed beers.<br />

 Southward Fare &amp; Libations
Southward Fare & Libations
Whether it’s coming from the South or heading towards the South, Southward is basically defined as anything having to do with the Southern direction, specifically, the 180° compass point, pointing directly toward the South.<br /><br />Here at Southward, we are devoted to all things Southern, and this means local ingredients, full flavors, and a comfort you can not only feel, but taste. The menu is defined by Chef Ryan Trimm’s take on Southern staples, including some items like fried chicken, collard greens, okra, and catfish, among many other delicious, traditional meals.<br /><br />From the coastal food of Charleston and Bar-B-Que from Memphis, to fresh seafood off the panhandle of Florida and the Cajun cuisine of Southern Louisiana, Southward explores everything the South has to offer.<br /><br />Our seasonal, local menu is a fresh breath of the South, combining scratch cooking and fresh ingredients. Serving only the tastiest fare with the warmest hospitality.

The Meddlesome Moth is Dallas’ most interesting full service restaurant, featuring an honest and flavorful chef driven menu, full service bar, and one of the finest selections of hand-crafted beers in the US. In addition to a changing selection of entrees, our small plates are robustly promoted to encourage sharing. We feature local seasonal menu items and offer fresh blackboard specials daily. Our patio area is spacious for dining al fresco, and reservations are encouraged. At 11pm The Moth transforms into one of Dallas' most comfortable bars and remains so until 2am, Thursday thru Saturday. Closing time is midnight otherwise.

Located in the vibrant neighborhood of Yaletown, Minami Restaurant delivers one of the most unique and innovative dining experiences to Vancouver. Minami follows the pioneering footsteps of sister restaurant, Miku for introducing the Aburi style or flame seared technique to Vancouver’s thriving sushi scene in 2008. Aburi sushi requires no soy sauce or wasabi, as the chefs create specialty sauces using non-traditional Japanese ingredients to complement the flavor properties of each variety of fish. <br /><br />From the kitchen, seasonal and regional ingredients are integrated into dishes to reflect the diversity of responsible food choices. Traditionally trained Japanese chefs are inspired by global flavors and cutting edge techniques to create a new style of cuisine. The culinary approach evokes passion and beauty, as each dish is artfully plated on custom-designed Arita Yaki plate ware, handpicked by owner, Seigo Nakamura. <br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Chef Whittaker’s vision features dishes that are unpretentious and innovatively prepared using products sourced from local and organic farmers, fishers and producers whenever possible. These combine for a menu featuring snacks such as “crackling & popcorn”; a variety of creative dishes from 'sea', 'land' and 'soil', to nosh on together or enjoy solo as a main; and desserts for a sweet (and a bit savoury) finish.
