Texas Restaurants~Whiskey Cake Kitchen and Restaurant

We initially were planning on eating at Nazar Turkish Restaurant in Addison, but about an hour before we were supposed to meet, I realized that the restaurant had closed. If a restaurant's website does not work, and their listed number results in a call to a disconnected phone number, there is a good chance that the restaurant is no longer in service.
We quickly changed our plans and met for dinner at the Whiskey Cafe, which is a fairly new restaurant that opened in late 2010.
Fried Green Tomatoes with remoulade dipping sauce
Hand Cut French Fries
BBQ Banh MI Wood smoked pulled pork, sweet and tangy veggies, arugula, cilantro, WC BBQ, crispy baguette
 Smoked Turkey StackSmoked turkey breast, mayo, frisee, tomato, cranberry chutney, and muenster cheese. I guess it's like Thankgiving foods in a sandwich. 

 Hot Pastrami Melt-House rubbed and smoked, pickled cabbage,  gruyere cheese, whole grain mustard, crisp baguette (they served it on marbled rye).
Holmes Farm Bird: Half spit-roasted chicken, sweet potato fennel hash, roasted shallot herb jus.  This is what I ordered. I thought that the chicken was moist and tasty, but I did not like the weird sweet flavor combination of the hash and the herb jus. 

We shared one serving of the whiskey cake (toffee torte, Bookers Anglaise, spiced pecans, and whipped cream) and the pie of the day which was a blackberry ice cream cake on an oreo cookie crust. The ice cream pie sounds good too, right, but it had an artificial "Fruity Pebbles" cereal to it. 
We regret not ordering two (or even three) orders of whiskey cake to share. The whiskey cake was definitely the highlight of the meal and I'm now going to search for a whiskey cake recipe so I can attempt to make something similar at home!
