Asador, new restaurant at Renaissance Hotel in Dallas, now open
The Spanish word Asador translates to grill.
DALLAS The Renaissance Dallas Hotel’s new restaurant Asador is now open, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Asador brings a new level of quality and creativity to the culinary landscape of the Dallas Market Center neighborhood. Celebrated Chef/Restaurateur Dean Max serves as concept chef for the restaurant and Restaurant Chef David Trubenbach, formerly of Melissa Kelly’s Primo Restaurant, oversees all day-to-day operations.
The Spanish word Asador translates to mean grill. The intimate casual eatery focuses on what Chef Max calls “farm to fire” cooking, using seasonal local ingredients prepared over an open flame of mesquite wood. Asador’s seasonal menu is comprised of Texas and Latin American inspired specialties with “snacks” for sharing as well as “market” and “large plates” selections for guests looking for a full dining experience.
Visitors to Asador’s Tequila Bar can indulge in a discerning selection of over 100 tequilas and several specialty cocktails, including seasonal margaritas made from fresh squeezed juices served with your choice of tequila.
Asador’s timeless décor features a soft contemporary design with relaxed Texas feel centered around an open stainless steel kitchen and hand-cut Austin stonewall washed with white light. The main dining room features Brazilian walnut wood floors, frosted glass accents, local photography, and columns wrapped with sheer fabric highlighting Dallas street names. The focal point of the restaurant is the tequila bar with over 100 tequilas displayed on glass shelves complemented by an LED illuminated concrete bar top.
