Getting in the Spring of Things with DRG

Ice-covered highways are a thing of the past and it’s a race against the calendar to temperatures in the triple digits – welcome to springtime in Texas! However brief a period of time this is, we want to celebrate it at all the DRG Concepts restaurants. A lot of great fruits and vegetables come into season in spring. Here are our favorite dishes to eat in springtime and soak in what just might be the sweetest of all seasons!

Dallas Fish Market

Sushi is great all year round, but spring is when some rolls really start to shine. April showers have to clear up some time, and when they do, they bring Rainbow Dragon Rolls! This sushi features a roll of eel on the outside and includes crab, salmon, avocado, strawberry, and pineapple, giving it colors as bright as spring. Pineapple also hits peak season in late March, making it a very timely roll of rice.

Mango season also starts in March, and the tropical fruit brings a springtime flavor to our Asian Chicken Salad! Now’s the time to keep things light with chicken, cucumber, noodles, daikon radish, sesame soy vinaigrette, and of course, mango. Get all the nutrients you’ll need to keep up with all the activities spring weather brings!

Wild Salsa

Continuing the spring fruit trend, Wild Salsa is a pineapple fan’s dream. Several of our drinks include pineapple, including Aguas Frescas! These fruity drinks are full of flavors, which are rotated every day. The pineapple version is a fan favorite that we feature often, so think about replacing that glass of water with something a little sweeter this spring!

If your meal is still looking like it could use some extra spring in its step, look no further than the list of Wild Salsa sides. Our Mango Jícama Slaw shows off two of spring’s favorite foods right in its name – the mango we all know and love, plus jícama that stays in season through late spring. Tacos and quesadillas could all use a little company, and Mango Jícama Slaw is ripe for picking!

Chop House Burger

Spring marks the unofficial start of salad season, which gives Chop House Burger regulars a reason to celebrate! Our salads are full of leafy greens, plus carrot, celery, mint, cucumber, and tomato, with a house-made sesame ginger dressing. It’s far from eating like a rabbit, especially when you add some protein on top! We’re happy to add a burger patty to your salad, including the beef, chicken, turkey, and ahi tuna patties.

Still, spring is no time to forget dessert. Strawberry season starts in May, and what better way to raise a glass to this time of year than with a Strawberry Shake? Enjoy a glass of strawberries in their sweetest form, made with local Henry’s Homemade Ice Cream from Plano, Texas.

Dallas Chop House

Dishes at Dallas Chop House are also in the springtime spirit, representing the vegetables that come into season right about now. Corn season also starts in May, making the Crawfish Maque Choux an obvious choice to go along with your Filet Mignon or other steak. Sautéed corn joins crawfish, red bell peppers, roasted poblano, garlic, and cream in this bright and sunny side.

Asparagus is actually a true springtime food, with its peak season occurring right in the middle of March and April. Our Grilled Jumbo Asparagus has hollandaise and grated ricotta salata, making It that perfect balance of light and full of flavor that spring weather often calls for.

Whichever way you choose to ring in spring, DRG Concepts is always glad to celebrate the season!

So much of what we love about being right in the heart of Downtown Dallas is all the history we’re surrounded by and get to be a part of. Our Main Street restaurants are all within a few blocks from the Majestic Theatre, which has been bringing music, film, and performing arts events to Downtown Dallas since 1921!

If you are attending a show at the Majestic Theatre, we would love for you to join us for dinner before or after. Bring your same-day tickets to any of our restaurants and show them to the server or manager for a complimentary appetizer or dessert with your meal!

Check out the events schedule to see what’s coming to the Majestic Theatre soon and start planning an amazing night out in Downtown Dallas!

Associate of the Week –Maria

DSC_0172

Maria has only been a server with us for two months, but it took no time at all for her to love her job at Dallas Fish Market. She has quickly become a favorite of many of our guests, who will be excited to hear that she is our Associate of the Week!

One thing Maria appreciates about Dallas Fish Market is the closeness that comes with working with a smaller group of people.

“I love the small environment and intimate setting, and really just getting to work together,” she said.

Maria is also a fan of Dallas Fish Market’s recently updated menu and enjoys explaining the dishes to guests and making recommendations. She said she loves listing the ingredients and how each menu item is made. While she was clear about liking everything on the menu, she did say there is one dish that is her absolute favorite.

“I can’t get over the Fennel-Coriander Crusted Ahi Tuna,” she said, “because it’s the best tuna I’ve ever had. I recommend it to the table every single time.”

She also remembers one specific time she really felt her attention to great service paid off. Dallas Fish Market often sees travelers who are passing through the downtown area, and one of Maria’s guests was only visiting for the week. After spending dinner at the restaurant with Maria as her server, she decided to come back every night she was in Dallas.

Maria explained, “It felt like such a compliment!”

Whether you come to Dallas Fish Market for the Fennel-Coriander Crusted Ahi Tuna or just the great service, be sure to congratulate Maria as our Associate of the Week next time you come by!

Associate of the Week –Stephanie

Dallas Fish Market is proud to have their server Stephanie as DRG Concepts’ Associate of the Week!

Stephanie has been working at Dallas Fish Market for three years. In that time she has really settled into the family atmosphere among everyone at the restaurant. She described it as a smaller, more intimate space that she enjoys working in.

“I sort of take on the mom role in the restaurant,” she said. “I love taking care of people, both the guests and the people I work with.” Stephanie loves to see guests return to the restaurant because it means they enjoyed their experience. She has gained quite a few regulars over the years and is always glad to make sure their meal is perfect each time.

When it comes to recommendations, Stephanie’s favorite dish is the Swordfish.

“It’s delicious and it’s been on the menu since I first started,” she said. “I made Chef promise he wouldn’t ever take it off the menu.”

Manager and Wine Director George Calderon agreed that Stephanie is great at her job and that her love for it shines through.

“She’s a very experienced server with great people skills,” he said.

If you’ve ever spent time at Dallas Fish Market, Stephanie will already be a familiar face. If not, she will always be happy to meet you and make a recommendation, whether you’re as big a fan of swordfish as she is or not.

Dallas Chop House

You can start your evening with this special Valentine version of Steak Tartare with black truffle, quail egg, and rosemary-sea salt focaccia.

For a second course we’re loving the looks of the Roasted Texas Quail. It’s served on top of corn pudding and crawfish maque choux – which are all superstars on their own, but have come together for this Valentine’s dish. Feel right at home on your night out with us!

Valentine’s Day would be nothing without dessert! We’re especially excited about this Chambord Red Velvet Cake, a traditional favorite given a sweet twist with chocolate ganache and whipped mascarpone frosting. It’s a dish so lovely Cupid would be proud.

Dallas Fish Market

For some, oysters are a Valentine’s Day staple – Beausoleil Oysters at Dallas Fish Market are made with egg sauce, frisee, and candied garlic. Frisee has been called “the most elegant of the salad vegetables” and is mostly popular in France, a whole country filled with romance! We’ve taken this dish up to the next Valentine level.

Our Pan Seared Salmon has all the extra touches your Valentine deserves. With horseradish celery root, mustard-fennel salad, and a beautiful Gala apple on the side, it’s the most delicious dish to say “I love you”!

We hear that over 35 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate are sold each Valentine’s Day.
