DALLAS

Scotch eggs and music history
As this city’s business leaders can well attest, Dallas is about more than 10-gallon hats and monster steaks. Deep Ellum, a neighborhood known in the 1920s for hosting blues greats like Lead Belly and Bessie Smith, is home to this hot new restaurant that reflects the city’s broader interests. The Independent’s rustic setting and menu of European comfort food—not to mention 20 brews on tap and 100 choices of bottled beer—are attracting Dallas’entrepreneurs, lawyers and tech leaders. They come for vinegar-laced fish and chips, beef-and-lamb shepherd’s pie, pork knuckle with spätzle and a banger and mash. But it’s the Scotch eggs that are the talk of the town. Instead of an outer layer of breading, the dish is made simply with seasoned sausage wrapped around the egg and fried, then served with mustard and curry piccalilli. How’s that for flouting clichés?
