San Salvaje & Les Miserables - Date Night with My Chef

In the last couple of months, Chad and I have had the opportunity to make almost every Tuesday evening "date night".  With Everleigh's Dallas "Grandma", (MamaLis...or as Everleigh is now starting to call her.. MamaEEES) spending Tuesday afternoons with our bear, we use those evenings to spend quality time together. Last Tuesday, with tickets to Les Miserables in hand for later that evening, we headed downtown to check out San Salvaje, a new restaurant concept by Steven Pyles.  This fusion of Mexico, Central America, South America, the Caribbean and Cuba was an explosion of amazing flavors.  Sweet and savory was combined with the perfect amount of tangy acidity to create dishes that certainly had us wanting more.   

Quinoa Salad, Puffed Cherries, Pine Nuts, Dried Apples 

Amberjack Ceviche, Crema de Rocoto 

 Smoked Duck Tacos, Rhubarb Salsa

Pork Belly Tacu Tacu, Fig Compote

Three Cheese Arepa, Salsa Verde

Pork Belly Tacu Tacu, Fig Compote

Escabeche of Sea Bass, Duck Fat Potatoes, 
Chile Pequin Aioli 

After our amazing meal, we headed to the Wyly Theater nearby for the 7:30 musical of Les Miserables.  
Being newbies to this particular theater, we were pleasantly surprised to see that no one seemed to have a bad seat in the whole house.  The stage was RIGHT there.. and we'd later find, as the performance went on, that on several occasions, we became PART of the show itself, with the performers acting in the aisles and among the crowd.  A truly awesome Dallas experience...can't wait to visit the Wyly again.  :)
