Earlier this year, Four Seasons in Las Colinas reinvented Cafe on the Green with a new signature restaurant, LAW (stands for land, air, water). The upscale restaurant features American fare with a Texas twist and offers a robust menu with many beef, poultry and seafood options sourced from throughout the region. I was in the Irving area with my friends and stopped by LAW for an eventful dinner and met the delightful head chef from South Africa, Johan.

Diners can expect a handful of varied starters from the menu including LAW Deviled Eggs with crab and duck confit, Raw Oysters and the popular Thick Cut Bacon with chipotle-agave glaze and pickled red onions.
Chef Johan brought out the Tuna Carpaccio (pictured below) with tuna bites, fried capers, orange segment and topped with avocado mousse. It’s light, healthy and shareable.
If you’re looking to start your meal with a salad, we recommend trying the Seasonal Burrata Salad (pictured below) with baby beets, balsamic marinated portobello, oven-roasted heirloom tomatoes and beet vinaigrette.It’s a tasty non-traditional salad with a balance of fresh seasonal items. Additional salad options include the LAW Wedge and TX Caesar salads.
Entrees and Sides
This part of the menu is categorized by land (red meats), air (chicken and turkey) and water (seafood) options.
Turkey and veggies join forces in the LAW’s Turkey Pot Pie, a popular comfort food that I was excited to see on the menu. The veggies are pickled, and the entree comes in a deep-dish bowl, so there’s plenty to eat. As a fan of pie crust, LAW lived up to my expectations for a tasty flaky crust. This is definitely a graet option during the cooler climates.
As a LITTLE obsessed with mac n cheese, I naturally had to order a side of it with my meal. LAW’s delectable mac n cheese comes topped with shredded truffle and is creamy and warming option to add to any entree. This side is one of the seasonal rotaters, so other times of the year you’ll see lobster chunks in it (which also sounds just as amazing).
Additional sides include roasted cauliflower, creamed spinach, truffle thick cut steak fries and more.
I had been eyeing this next time, the Akauski Burger, as soon as we sat down for dinner. Stacked with multiple layers, this burger does not disappoint. The smoked Gouda hails from Brazos Valley; the ketchup is made in house and is a bit creamier and sweeter than typical store-bought ketchup; the horseradish pickles boosts the overall savory taste of the burger. (pictured below)
Other entrees worth checking out in my opinion include LAW’s famous Long Bone Tomahawk (48-oz bone-in rub eye for two people) and the Grilled Pork Chop with yam, apricot and brussel sprouts.
This restaurant is definitely one for wine connoisseurs, as LAW offers more than 10 pages full of Texas wines on a dedicated menu. The selections are organized into the following categories: Cool Kids, Popularity Contest and Mature Wines. LAW even has a master sommelier (and beverage director) James Tidwell who can share his suggestions and education on wine.
You’ll also find a full bar with fun handcrafted cocktails such as the Texas Smoked Margarita (pictured below with patron silver and house-made smoked agave), Last Caress (firestone and robertson TX whiskey), People Helping People (cucumber & cilantro infused Tito’s vodka) and more. These drinks range from $12-14.
And now to my favorite part of any meal, dessert! The S’mores were brought out to us and torched tableside by the chef. The housemade marshmallows and chocolate were lightly torched (you can ask the staff to do another round if you want your items ooey-gooey) and were set on the housemade graham crackers. Fun experiences like this make the entire meal so memorable.
Other desserts to indulge in include: Warm Churro Bites, TX Bread Pudding, Apple Hand Pies and Chocolate Molten Cake. (They all sound equally delicious if you ask me!)
Though the overall menu prices can be high (this is the Four Seasons after all), I recommend LAW for the occasional splurge if you’re celebrating something special occasions or looking to try a date night place.
LAW is located inside the Four Seasons Resort and Club at 4150 N MacArthur Blvd, Irving, TX 75038.
