SOUTH LAMARBarley Swine pastry chef Kyle McKinney discusses his use of savory elements in his desserts with Plate Online.

The vibe is Texas-y as all get-out, and offerings include brisket and sausage. Only open two weeks, Morgan's is already "drawing huge crowds at night." Wait a minute - at night?
