Clark Food & Wine Co. is the perfect spot for a weeknight girls dinner or for a casual date. “Modern Texas Dining” is the style of cuisine here and the menu features many shared plates, as well as larger entree portions. For drinks, pick a wine from their well-curated list or opt for a craft beer or cocktail. Their happy hour is from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Friday featuring great deals on both beverages and food and they also have brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We recently took our mom here for a girls dinner when she was visiting for the weekend. We were excited to see the Kali Hart Pinot Noir on the wine list because we recently had the opportunity to visit the Talbott Vineyards and thoroughly enjoyed all of the wine we tried. After ordering a bottle of the Kali Hart, we perused the appetizers and decided to try the Balsamic Glazed Brisket Meatballs with Blue Cheese and the Crispy Artichoke Hearts with Green Goddess Dressing and Parmesan. Both appetizers were phenomenal and we definitely recommend them!
For our entrees, Barbara ordered the Pappardelle with Pulled Chicken, Spring Peas, Mint, Thyme, Chicken Jus, and Shaved Parmesan. This dish was so flavorful and extremely satisfying. Emily ordered the Veal Bolognese that came with Casarecce Pasta, Whipped Ricotta, and Basil. Although the Bolognese was good, it was not the best we’ve ever had and could have done without the micro greens piled on top (full disclosure, we are self-proclaimed Bolognese connoisseurs).
Our mom ordered the Texas Chopper salad as her entree. It came with Chopped Brisket, White Cheddar, Iceberg, Cabbage, Roasted Corn, Avocado, Black Beans, Cilantro, Radish, Jalapeño, Green Goddess, and Pepitas. The salad was pretty good and definitely large enough to be an entree. The brisket was truly the star of this dish.
Overall, we give Clark Food & Wine Co. a thumbs-up and will definitely be back! We look forward to trying some of their seafood dishes and house-made meats. Also, this would be the perfect place for a pizza and wine night – we hear their Brick Oven Flatbreads are pretty awesome!
