There’s a fun new spot in Montrose that’s very hip…Chef Kevin Bryant’s Eleven X1. It’s something of a lucky number really; a belief in the ‘wishing hour’ of 11:11, when supposedly any prayers or blessings of luck are heard more favorably. The restaurant even opens during the week precisely at 11:11 AM!
No luck is necessary here, however, as the food and its renown chef are fabulous. Did you know he’s a former personal chef of George Strait? I was an instant fan!
When Goodtaste cameras last visited, Chef Bryant sautéed some beautiful Texas Wild Caught Brown Shrimp…butter poached on a dense bed of citrus pico de gallo with a grapefruit gastrique (caramel mixed with vinegar).

The flavor from the locally caught shrimp simply cannot be beat — it doesn’t get any fresher than with the Gulf of Mexico so close. More and more restaurants like Eleven XI are making it their mission to support the Go Texan movement. Follow along with this video and try the recipe now available online at Goodtaste.tv.
