Mudhen Meat and Greens, the highly anticipated eatery at the Dallas Farmer’s Market opens Monday, January 18 at 5pm with lunch and weekend brunch service announced shortly. Mudhen is the newest concept from restaurateurs Shannon Wynne, Keith Schlabs and Larry Richardson.
Executive Chef Suki Otsuki uses fresh, seasonal produce and clean meats in tasty and creative combinations on an extensive menu that includes starters, salads, sandwiches, B.Y.O.B – Build Your Own Bowl and entree selections. Desserts are prepared in-house by Pastry Chef Laurel Wimberg.
Nutritionist and Sundrops founder Mark Herrin acts as “in house” counsel, consulting with chef Suki on nutritional benefits as well as differentiating between myth, mania and moderation. The menu is designed to offer lower carbohydrate offerings plus a larger selection of pasture-raised land meats, ocean-raised fish and healthy greens, organic and GMO-free whenever possible.
“Our goal was to open a restaurant with delicious food that also offers options for many folks that try to follow a healthier lifestyle,” says Shannon Wynne. “One of our soul-cries is “This is not a Dress Rehearsal, Eat Right”. All of the dishes will not appeal to the ‘meat and potatoes’ crowd, but if we do it right most everyone should be able to find some good meats and greens on our menu. If you love sweets, we may not be your cup of tea.”
With more than 6,000 square feet including two large outdoor patios, diners can dine al fresco or with a view of Mudhen’s state of the art kitchen.
Fresh fruit juices, smoothies and coolers are made to order and aguas frescas rotate daily. Cocktails, such as the Ameraucana, Dorking and Lakenvelder, all named for chicken breeds, are handcrafted and complement menu offerings. The bar features 20 taps of curated craft beers including local favorites from Lakewood, Peticolas and Community Brewing Companies in addition to a special Mudhen Blend from Holy Kombucha. Wines are available both by the glass and bottle.
