Zack's American Bistro
Zack's American Bistro is always changing. The restaurant's atmosphere shifts throughout the day, from a casual family spot—complete with an outdoor playground for wait-averse kids—in the early hours to a dinner scene that's boisterous in the evening yet quiet and romantic later in the night. Its food, meanwhile, adheres to the seasons, unlike a snow-globe souvenir from the Florida Keys. Thankfully, chef-owner Bryan Cromwell and executive chef Brian Milne can handle whatever the restaurant demands of them.
They rule an open kitchen that allows guests to watch as their food is cooked, which makes for a lively atmosphere tuned to the fast-paced meal preparation. Although their environs might be modern, the chefs are guided by an old-fashioned sensibility and an appreciation for seasonal and Texas-produced ingredients. These fresh components go into dishes such as filet of sole stuffed with crab, chicken corn chowder, hearty house-ground Texas beef burgers, and crispy thin-crust pizzas loaded with eclectic toppings and red, white, or barbecue sauce. Roughly 25 wines by the bottle and a brief but robust selection of local craft brews complement the spread.
