Deep Ellum will soon be home to another upscale-ish dining restaurant, Twenty-Seven.
Chef and owner, David Anthony Temple (also known as Chef DAT), signed a lease for the space at 2901 Elm St. six months ago. It was previously used by Holly Muller as My Private Chef Kitchen and Showroom. “We ended the underground dinners about four months ago to focus on the build out of the restaurant,” Temple explains. The idea for the restaurant came to Temple when he was 27-years old, and it is an ode to all of the great musicians who passed away at 27.
There are two seating times per night. A three-course dinner at 6 p.m. that costs $60 per person, and a six-course chef tasting menu at 8:30 p.m. for $85 per person. The prix fixe menu is divided into three sections: Field (vegetarian), Land (meat), and Sea (seafood, duh!). The menu will rotate weekly, but dish examples include classic French turtle soup with sherry, braised trinity, and lemon; fresh Maine lobster with penne, brown butter crema, fennel, and grapefruit; and black garlic ice cream with huckleberries, Nutella powder, and mint flower salad. Guests will need to choose their menu when making a reservation.
Twenty-Seven is hosting a limited-reservation soft opening on Thursday, January 29 (their liquor license won’t be ready until February 9, so don’t expect cocktails just yet). The restaurant will be open for dinner Thursday through Saturday.
