Here’s a taste of what’s on tap this weekend at the Beard House.
California Provençale, 7:00 P.M.
Wally’s Beverly Hills, Beverly Hills, CA
Spanning from Paris to L.A., native Frenchman David Féau’s impressive résumé includes stints at Guy Savoy’s Bistrot de l’Etoile, Michelin-starred Le Miravile, and New York City’s Lutèce. Now at the helm of the buzzy Beverly Hills restaurant and wine emporium Wally’s, the JBF Award semifinalist is bringing his imaginative, French-inflected California cuisine to the Beard House. Just one look at Féau’s menu encapsulates the chef’s talent for transforming traditional flavors into unexpected and playful new forms, from Fried Brie with Truffled Honey to Roasted Liberty Duck Apicius with Citrus-Roasted Turnips. With Féau at the helm, diners can expect a meal that takes them from the heart of Provence to Rodeo Drive and back again.
Swanky Chophouse, 7:00 P.M.
Nick and Sam's Steakhouse, Dallas
What do George Clooney, Bono, and Derek Jeter have in common? They’re regulars at Nick and Sam’s, the glitzy Lone Star State chophouse. Now Beard House guests can bask in their own star treatment with a glamorous night of prime cuts, caviar, truffles, and more. Far from standard steakhouse fare, chef Samir Dhurandhar has infused his menu with the palate of his Indian heritage to create luxe dishes that stand out amongst the crowded tenderloin and rib-eye field, such as Pappadam with Spiced Eggplant and Gorgonzola and Chilean Sea Bass Tikka Masala with Crab Brandade and Mustard Greens. Beard House guests can also count on satisfying chophouse mainstays like Chicken Liver Crostini with Port Jelly and Ohmi Beef Tenderloin with Cipollini, Oxtail Croquettes, and King Crab Oscar, guaranteeing a top-notch meal whether you’re a classic or curious carnivore.
