Unforgettable Dining

Where modern glamour meets historic grandeur

Starting with produce picked fresh from the estate’s own gardens, and procured through specially cultivated relationships with local farmers and ranchers, husband-and-wife chef team Bradley Nicholson and Susana Querejazu take a personalized, handcrafted approach that ranges from dry-aging their own steaks to making their own soy sauce from Texan pecans.

Hyper-local ingredients. Artisan flair.

Estate Cocktails

Get into the spirit of the Mansion’s extraordinary setting with craft cocktails named after famous estates. Take in the afternoon’s last rays of sunlight on the airy Loggia while sipping a sparkling Wrigley cocktail. Sink into deep conversation in the oval book-lined Library, while enjoying an Arden, prepared with single-barrel bourbon. Or gather around a crackling fire in the Living Room with the Hearst, a pecan-infused cognac drink.
