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!
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!
