Chef Tre Wilcox invites you to enjoy an intimate culinary experience straight from his personal kitchen. The former Executive Chef and two-time alum of Bravo TV’s Top Chef, located in the downtown Dallas area, will be combining his passion for teaching with local celebrity chefs. The demo-cooking classes are for those interested in mastering all of the great techniques taught by some of the best local chefs in Dallas. There is no other Saturday lunch that can compare to this fabulous 4-course meal, prepared & served to you one on one.
Each class is from 12-3 pm on select Saturday dates. Chef Tre Wilcox and one guest chef will each prepare 2 courses to make a spectacular meal prepared for you right at the kitchen counter.

Just weeks ago we learned that Marquee chef Tre Wilcox was leaving the restaurant he helped open, and the restaurant hired former Fairmont Hotel chef Andre Natera. Nataera started as chef at the beginning of February and has been doing a fantastic job as top toque, working with Tre’s menu for the time being and putting out some amazing specials that are being trialed for the new menu which should roll out very soon. Even bigger news is what will become of the second floor that the owners announced would be transitioned into a separate restaurant. There has been plenty of speculation. Continue reading

The food lords of Dallas were taken aback recently when Tre Wilcox resigned his post two years after he opened the kitchen at Marquee in Highland Park Village. Wlicox comes to us with an amazing pedigree named as the James Beard Foundation’s “Rising Star Chef” for two consecutive years, and appearing on Top Chef Season 3 and the All Star Season 8. On any given night Wilcox could be found working the line in his own kitchen at Marquee rather than playing up his celebrity status.
Wilcox claimed he wanted to spend more time with his family and offer cooking classes in his home, and the man has been doing just that. Continue reading

We talked about the Food For Thought event last month, but we wanted to give you an update. We are always getting requests for event information, and the summertime is a slow period for food events. As we draw closer to Fall and Winter that will all change and we will be announcing all sorts of fun events.
The fourth annual Food for Thought event will be held from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, September 22, at the Frontiers of Flight Museum. Showcasing Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest chefs and cuisine, Food for Thought benefits Big Thought, one of Dallas’ leading nonprofits dedicated to improving public education through creative learning (and Big Thought happens to be celebrating its 25th anniversary this year). At the event, former DISD School Board Trustee Edwin Flores will be honored with the coveted Gavel of Excellence Award. Food For Thought is presented by Lockheed Martin in partnership with the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers. Continue reading

Brunch is the backbone of the Dallas dining society. We have literally done 100’s of brunch stories on craveDFW and featured Chef Tre Wilcox from the Village Marquee Texas Grill last year. The Top Chef continues to update and improve his menus and most recently revamped his brunch offerings by adding spicier selections to reflect this city’s adoration for Texas flare.
The most outrageously wonderful dish you will find on the menu is the hang-over cure, the Hung Pig sandwich. This pile of pork includes Tre’s own sausage, BBQ pulled pork, bacon and a fried egg. The sandwich is juicy and satisfying and fulfills any bacon contract you may have had for the day. Continue reading
