There's one restaurant I always recommend to people seeking gluten-free, vegan, or vegetarian options for dining out. I also constantly recommend them to people who deal with food allergies. This restaurant's chef, sous chef, and staff are all more than happy to accommodate literally any diner.
I'm always excited to return to Sundown at Granada. Their vision is laser-focused on serving locally sourced, non-GMO ingredients, and their attention to sourcing while also being creative and thinking outside the culinary box shines through every time I dine here.
Their talented Executive Chef Jason West was named Rising Star Chef of the Year 2016 at CultureMap's TasteMaker Awards, and when you taste his food and hear him speak about it, it's easy to understand why.
Sundown recently rolled out their new spring menu, and Chef Jason was excited to share it with us at a media dinner I attended. "I'm pumped about our newest dishes! Since we're heading into the blazing Texas spring and summer heat, it was important to stay on the lighter side of things with brighter flavors and tastes. We want people to be able to come eat here and not feel like they need to take a nap afterward," explains Chef Jason.
With that in mind, he began our media tasting with a delightful (and gluten-free) Yellow Tomato Gazpacho made with cucumber, garlic, jalapeno, endive, squash, and garden veggies, which Chef described as "summer rain in a bowl".
Another table favorite was the Yellow Beet Pesto Pasta, house made bucatini with summer squash noodles, sun-dried tomatoes, arugula, basil, citrus chili oil, and shaved parmesan. Quite light, yet very filling!
Add to all of these creative and delicious new menu items their perfect rooftop patio complete with good vibes and city views, and Sundown at Granada has yet another winning combination.
