Lanny's Alta Cocina Mexicana Restaurant Review

: Lanny Lancarte II, the scion of the state’s most famous Tex-Mex-restaurant family, branched out on his own---and the result is some of the most scintillating food in the Dallas area. Working with first-rate ingredients mined from the interior of Mexico, Lancarte applies classic French and Italian techniques to create a menu of pure elegance. Some of his more intriguing dishes include agave nectar glazed duck breast with spaghetti squash and orange jus, seared foie gras with chipotle-infused bean purée and carne asada sauced with an herb-y chimichurri and plated with sweet potato gratin. For lighter appetites, there is a selection of specialty tapas such as chorizo-wrapped scallops, mole braised oxtail, plantain chips and banana gastrique. Spanish and South American wines are littered among the interesting choices, while the pomegranate margarita is a winsome cocktail pick. The dining room, housed in an adobe cottage, offers a contemporary setting with modest but effective touches of modern art. Don't miss a chance to view the water wall on the serene patio.

Could be great, but serious flaws

A converted home, eats like you're at a folding table in your grandmother's living room. Some dishes are flawless, but many are just flat. A scallop dish was tremendous, except for the oil that slid off the goofy flat dish that sloughed off due to the wobbly table.
Service is indifferent. I've eaten here four times. the first was superb, the next two very good, and the last, unfortunately, just very average.
