Barter: Trade in Your Hunger for an Unforgettable Texas Meal

July 23, 2014 11:32 am

The flavorful cuisine of Texas is on full display at Barter, a casually hip restaurant that embraces our state's love of grilled and barbecued meats. Sit down at one of Barter's woodgrain tables bordered in sleek metal set beneath a rancher’s rope light fixture, and you’ll get a sense of the urban-meets-cowboy meal you’re about to enjoy.

Giving traditional barbecue favorites a modern update, Barter gives its patrons a fresh taste of the best parts of Texas. The nine-ounce tenderloin is served with black truffle rosti, while the Farm Half Chicken comes with charred carrots. The added touches elevate each dish into a more formal dining experience yet is still accessible all. The laid-back atmosphere and friendly staff make a meal at Barter a relaxing event, one you can enjoy with several friends or that one special person.
