Like a good lawyer, you know how to see things through rose-tinted lenses. But there’s no need for the skewed view at Veritas Wine Room. The new Knox/Henderson wine shop boasts more than 150 boutique labels, most of which are small production and hard to find. It’s the Texas-centric food menu that really sets the bar high, though. The far-from-grocery-store variety includes cheeses from Nancy Patton’s Haute Goat Creamery in Lubbock, bison jerky from Hamilton, Wiseman House chocolates from Hico, and gourmet pates by local chef Brian Luscher (The Grape). The operation’s owned by siblings Brooks and Brad Anderson, who happen to be lawyers by day. So if you need a dish of legal advice, that can be served up, too. Looks like everything’s coming up roses. Veritas Wine Room, 2323 North Henderson Avenue, suite 103, Knox/Henderson (214-841-9463).
