buttermilk fried oysters at Celtic Seafare in Dripping Springs, Texas

(map) With racehorse-like speed, Celtic Seafare has galloped from a mere commercial kitchen to a tasting room to serving gourmet, three-course meals. On Fridays and Saturdays, Chef Sebastian turns out a menu that would shine anywhere in town, showcasing his amazingly tasty smoked salmon along with the best fresh, local ingredients. Above, a starter course of buttermilk-fried oysters with slaw and a chili-ginger sauce.

Texas Gulf swordfish, seared along with a lobster tail poached in champagne, is served atop creamy polenta. This was a special Valentine’s menu, but the regular menus run $38 per person. They’ll include dishes like an amuse bouche of local charcuterie like duck mousse or pate de campagne. Starter choices might be a smoked-salmon caprese or warm chevre salad made with Pure Luck Farms goat cheese. Main courses could be a hearty beef bourguignon or salmon en croute (a flaky puff pastry).

You never know what decadent dessert will be on the menu. Above, a rich chocolate cheesecake with creme anglaise. Below, an even richer chocolate torte with fresh strawberries in a coulis. Best of all, it’s BYOB, so there’s no charge for any beer, wine or champagne you may wish to accompany your meal. Cheers!
