Pyramid goes iron (chef) … sort of

The Fairmont Hotel’s Pyramid restaurant — which I reviewed recently — is doing some great work, but there’s apparently some friendly rivalry in the kitchen over there. Executive chef Andre Natera and exec sous chef Paul Peddle want to show who’s tops right now, so they are demonstrating their talents in an Iron Chef-like face-off tonight in the legendary Venetian Room of the hotel. The four-course dinner with wine pairing from sommelier Hunter Hammett (one of the most astute wine guys in Dallas right now, if you ask me) costs a pretty reasonable $100, especially considering you have two chefs cookin’ for ya.

There are some tickets still available, which you can get by going here.
