|Fixe Baked-to-Order Biscuits|
We recently dined at Fixe and were incredibly impressed with the ambiance, cuisine, spirits and service. The restaurant is warm and classy yet inviting. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and eloquently described all the dishes. He also made some wonderful recommendations on both the cuisine and the drinks we ordered.
Based off all the hype we started off with an order of their famous baked-to-order biscuits. Believe the hype my friends, these biscuits are phenomenal! The gorgeous golden biscuits have slightly firm crust and a warm fluffy doughy inside. They smartly pair the biscuits with both a savory and a sweet. This particular evening our biscuits came with a flavorful andouli sausage spread and slightly sweet raspberry preserves.
Pro tip: Because the biscuits are baked-to-order they take about 20 minutes to prepare.
|House-made Pickles at Fixe|
I love house-made pickles and theirs did not disappoint. They use a variety of crisp farm fresh veggies.
|Pickled Shrimp and Vegetables at Fixe|
The delightful pickled shrimp off the chilled menu has bright tangy flavors. Texas white shrimp are brined and pickled with Cajun spices and served with pickled farm vegetables and coriander. I loved this dish and appreciate that they have lighter healthy menu options that also taste delicious.
|Pork Shoulder at Fixe|
The incredibly tender pork shoulder is served with true Southern flair. The dish is plated with potlikker pinto beans, mustard greens and a fabulous jalapeño-kale emulsion. The pork is sous vide resulting in a perfectly cooked fall-off-the-bone dish. Along with the Fixe biscuits the pork shoulder is the ultimate comfort food.
|Barrel Aged Manhattan at Fixe|
The bar program is as exceptional as their cuisine. We were impressed with the barrel aged Manhattan made with Woodford Reserve, Carpano Antica and garnished with candied Tender Belly bacon.
I enjoyed the extensive wine list and paired my meal with a refreshing sparkling rosé followed by a glass of dry 2014 Halter Ranch Rosé, Paso Robles.
