Anne Fishbein Beet terrine with goat cheese and pea tendrils at Chez Tex


  • Tue.-Fri., 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; 5:50-10 p.m. Sat. & Sun., 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
Chez Tex bills itself as a cafe and wine bar, somewhere you can stop by in the daytime for a macchiato and a burger (a very fancy burger, made with Huntsman cheese and onion marmalade), or in the evening for a glass of wine and some nibbles. As such, I wish there were more options on the menu that were both small and substantive. In a world flooded with small plates, they're in oddly short supply at this one place where they make sense. Chez Tex serves a lot of salads, and a cheese plate and a charcuterie board, but the most interesting appetizer beyond that beet terrine is a plate of peewee potatoes, served naked alongside salt and Normandy butter. They're fine, the butter is lovely, but it's a little spare. —Besha Rodell
