A tech success story's new food palace

Those who achieve stratospheric financial success face high class problems, from "Should I run for governor?" to "Should I be a one-termer, because this kind of sucks". Instead opting to build his dream restaurant, the man behind Artin's Grill.

Just open in the Shops at Legacy, Artin's is from an ex-communications software honcho whose last company sold for a cool $325 million, his cut leaving him plenty of cash to construct a massive, airy eatery that awesomely melds pale stone columns, solid teak-&-mesquite-top tables, copper-sided booths, cherry wall-height wine cases, and, because nothing confuses patrons like futzing with the dimmer knob, photosensitive LEDs. The Asian/Latin-tinged American menu's executed by Bella's ex-kitchen maestro, and starts with the likes of fried calamari (w/ roasted pepper aioli) and beef short rib nachos (w/ avocado, cumin cream sauce) before moving on to a cab-demiglaze'd 16oz bone-in rib-eye, sweet-n-spicy baby back ribs, and bacon-wrapped shrimp served alongside a petit filet (so, turfsurf & turf). Breaded/bunned fare's repped by a pastrami panini and the Wagyu/Jack/avocado/jalapeno/crispy onion Texas Burger; sides include onion strings, mushroom mac & cheese, and buttered broccolini, a vegetable you might recognize from the comedic musings of Dana Carvini.

To sully your own Legacy, the stunning polished granite-top bar'll be slinging TBD specialty cocktails, plus 20 beers and a 61-label wine list stretching from a $28 St. Francis Chard to a $130 Darioush Cab -- order that, and you'd better have achieved financial success, or at least know how to run.
