Wild About Wild Game Week at Mignon

by Steven Doyle

This week Dallas diners are in for a true treat if they are to visit Mignon in Plano. The venerable French Bistro style steakhouse on Preston Road is known for serving prime beef and fresh seafood, but this week something new will be added — markedly a temporary wild game menu.

Staying true with their French technique, Mignon has planned a separate menu that will feature selections of rabbit, wild boar, elk and quail. The restaurant recently hosted a tasting and we were invited to sample. Although these dishes were rich and savory, just in time for the Fall season, we are still eye-balling their braised beef short ribs or the puff pastry filled with escargot (another rare item on Dallas menus).  

The menu has a shelf life that runs through November 13, 201, but chef James Sleeth claims he will retain the more popular dishes from the wild game week as specials on the regular menu.

Braised Wild Boar with potato gnocchi, grilled fresh figs, shaved truffle cheese and aged balsamic.

Grilled Marinated Quail served on field greens, fresh winter pear, marinated feta, toasted filberts, mixed berries and raspberry Champagne vinaigrette.

Braised Rabbit with roasted Yukon gold potatoes, baby carrots, Brussels sprouts and jus.

Elk Tenderloin served with pommes Anna, caramelized pearl onion, candied pecans, rosemary oil and demi-glace.
