Hi there, molten chocolate cake.
After we finished a light salad, touched with olive oil and fresh goat cheese, Marc Cassel entered a halo of light at the Kessler to introduce his fine meal: beef tenderloin with wild mushroom stroganoff and bright parsley, followed by a chocolate cake in a creamy anglaise.

And so kicks off City of Ate's Supper Club, last night being the first installment of a dinner and music series at the Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff. Next month, May 5, we'll have chef Kelly Hightower with music by Nina Katrina, followed by famed Smoke chef Tim Byres in June.

Last night featured the three-course meal you'll see pictured after the jump by Marc Cassel, whom you may know from the Green Room, with an effortlessly good set of smoky jazz from Damon K. Clark.

Check out photos of the dinner and entertainment after the jump, including info on upcoming Supper Club events. Hope to see you all there in May.

thought the meal was a bit too safe. had fun, but the food was lacking


Great night, The food was lovely and the setting felt just right. It was a shame that the performers were chewing gum and reading sheet music as they sang. Wonderful voices, but it takes more than a voice to connect with the audience,


Nice pics Nick. Hungry again.


I ducked in to take a look. The room looked great!

Such a great event. The entire meal was great but the cake was fantastic.
