Tucker (Dallas)

Last night, we (a party of 6) ventured into Tucker for the first time and we were all impressed. Dinner for 6 without wine but with dessert and coffee was $150. The menu is new american/comfort food with a tapas selection instead of appetisers. The tapas included fried green tomatoes, pork pot stickers and lobster puff pastry. All were very good. Our entrees ranged from smoked sea bass to salmon stuffed chicken breasts. Once again all were very good. We also tried several desserts and the vahlrona chocolate tart was the clear winner over the berry crumble and creme brulee. The room itself was as described in the recent DMN review. It reminded me of the classic east coast gentlemen's club with rich, dark brown wood paneling, floor to ceiling bookcases and a crackling fire in an ornate fireplace. It was actually a gas flame so no crackling but I think I might have heard it anyway.
Overall, we all enjoyed Tucker and look forward to going back. Interestingly for that part of town on a Tuesday night, the parking lot was 2/3 full and there were several tables of unescorted women. Must not be that risky afterall.
