6:00 PM Reception | 7:00 PM Dinner
$135 per person, includes tax and service
|Tim Byres, named the Southwest 2012 Food & Wine Magazine’s “People’s Best New Chef,” is the co-owner and chef of Dallas’ SMOKE, Chicken Scratch, The Foundry, Bar Belmont, SMOKE Plano and The Theodore.
Byres has been influenced by flavors and techniques as widely differing as those he found in the local foods of Haiti, the Mississippi Delta, the Pacific Northwest, and the Tex-Mex kitchens knocking at his back door. Now a Texan at heart, Byres draws mostly on the regional traditions of Mexico, Louisiana and the American South to craft his very personal take on forward-thinking American cuisine.
