1PD: Spring Pea Ravioli at Pyramid Restaurant, the Dallas Fairmont


this shelled pea ravioli tastes like spring itself

a dinner on the fairmont's garden rooftop is the most delightful meal in dallas

sommelier hunter hammett is one of the area's best somms

hawke madeira, from texas, is just about the best alcoholic beverage made in the state

Here’s an idea: have dinner al fresco in the rooftop garden at downtown’s Fairmont Hotel.  Chef Andre Natera’s just rolled out the new spring menu at the Pyramid, a surprisingly good restaurant in an otherwise business travelers’ hotel. I’ve raved about Natera’s cooking here and here. I’m not about to stop. Right now, he’s serving a dish that tastes  as good as spring itself: house made sweet pea ravioli. His are perfectly al dente, little orbs containing a spoonful of sweet, fresh peas creamed with mascarpone. He then anoints them with more sweet peas, sprinkled around a soft swirl of pea butter and mushrooms, and, finally, a few curls of watercress. Together, they create One Perfect Dish.

 Fairmont Hotel Pyramid Restaurant, 1717 N Akard St. Dallas, 214-720-5249
