Dine Healthy: Smoke

A recommendation for eating well, and (relatively) guilt-free, at one of Dallas' best restaurants.

Smoke:Bricked Cornish hen with split pea stew, blistered grapes, and a red wine reduction $19

If you’ve never had a Cornish hen before, you need to: A) question if you’re really Texan and B) prepare yourself for the flavor experience about to go down. Each hen is a single serving size of 134 calories. Smoke’s Cornish hen comes out a perfect caramel brown, juicy and tender without all the heavy fats. A majority of the fat in Cornish hens are heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated essential fatty acids. The light meat contains all the right proteins for your body.
