McKinney’s top chef is hosting a Texas beer dinner this weekend

I am crazy about chef Robert Lyford’s cooking and Patina Green, the lovely restaurant in downtown McKinney that Lyford owns with his wife Kaci. This Saturday, April 23, Lyford offers a strong reason to check him out. Saturday night at 7:30, Lyford will host a five-course menu celebrating locally-sourced Texas produce and products paired with seven Texas craft Continue reading →

Kobalt Wine Dinner 054
