Stephan Pyles Talks Samar on Austin DM

AUSTIN Saturdays 10-11 a.m., Talk 1370

A Presentation of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods 

Today we’re in Dallas, visiting the other Texas restaurant chosen (along with Haven in Houston) as one of the year’s best new places by Esquire magazine. It’s Samar, created by famous chef Stephan Pyles as an homage to the entangled cuisines of the ancient spice routes. That means there are virtually three menus in one exotic place: Indian, Middle Eastern/Mediterranean, and Spanish with its strong Moorish influence. Still, you don’t need to look anything up in a history book to understand Samar. You can just know that it’s delicious. Also, we head over to Spec’s for our Grape & Grain tasting segment, looking into some very special wines for the holiday season with wine buyer Collin Williams.
