Chef Chris Ward’s New Lunch Menu at The Mercury: Burgers and Chicken Fried Steak!

mercuryChef Chris Ward has just added a list of burgers and sandwiches to his lunch menu at The Mercury. Burgers are the star followed by muffulettas, pastrami dips, and fried chicken skins with cream gravy.  One of the best versions of chicken fried steaks I’ve eaten in Dallas was made by Ward. Now he serves it as a sandwich. Makes me wonder if he’s test driving a new concept to open. Go. Eat. Report. Full menu below.
