I went to dinner at Arro yesterday, the new French-country restaurant that took over the Haddington’s space. The restaurant was opened by ELM Restaurant Group (headed by Top Chef contestant Andrew Curren), who also owns Easy Tiger and 24 Diner. The food was delicious, and the staff was incredibly attentive and gave great recommendations. They have two Master Sommeliers (there’s only 7 in Texas with that title) working for ELM, and they chose “all of the liquids” that are served at the restaurant, from the wines, to the beers, cider, coffee, etc.
Pictured from top: snapshot of their generously reasonable Three Course menu, the Malbec that we had (I’d like to enjoy it at home), french onion soup with the cheesy bread on the side, herb salad, their phenomenal mussels and frites that I want to go back for, their trio of bread from Easy Tiger, asparagus with runny fried egg on top, and lastly we shared the grilled antelope (in the forefront) and the duck confit (it was perfectly done, something that is hard to do with duck). We closed dinner with the dark chocolate pot de creme, served with a brandy cream and cherries—to die for.
