Flores will offer a five-course dinner that includes lionfish prepared four ways. The dinner, 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13, costs $80 per person or $100 with wine pairings. Call for reservations, 214.942.2530.
Dave Johnson of Traditional Fisheries, which sources lionfish for restaurants all over the country, is co-hosting the event. Lionfish are a beautiful but poisonous species indigenous to the West Pacific. They are prolific breeders and are so aggressive that they are capable of wiping out native reef fish in the Atlantic Ocean, including the Gulf of Mexico.
