Chef Chat Part 3: Dax McAnear

Dax McAnear may be leaving shortly, but his impact on Houston's restaurants has been widespread. Working at Benjy's, Beaver's, Textile and now his short shifts at Yelapa Mexicana, Dax has grown with Houston's emerging culinary community. We have had his food at various places, including a roasted Berkshire shoulder with a mounted butter sauce, smoked pork chop with cockles and spicy coppa (pictured above), and Mangalitsa loin. Every experience we have had with his cuisine has been memorable.

While it is a damn shame that Houston is losing one of its talented local chefs, we now have one more reason to go explore the culinary world of San Francisco. We will keep our readers up to date on McAnear's new gig.
