In 1896 Texas Ranger Bill McDonald was called to Dallas by the Mayor, Franklin Holland, in the hopes of stopping a riot caused by the crowd that had gathered to watch an illegal heavyweight prize fight between Pete Maher and Bob Fitzsimmons. According to author Bigelow Paine, when the Mayor met Ranger McDonald at the train station and expressed concern that they only sent one Texas Ranger to handle the situation, McDonald responded, “Hell, ain’t I enough? One riot, one ranger.” 
It is in that spirit that Chef Tim Byres and Smoke Restaurant offer a new dining experience entitled “One Riot. One Ranger.”. These dinners will be held monthly for a private audience who will dine al fresco on the back patio at Smoke alongside Chef Tim who will preside over the evening and personally prepare a 5 course meal for the lucky 20 guests who RSVP first.The meal is $50 per person, or $75 with wine pairings.

The first One Riot One Ranger dinner will be May 13 and May 14. Reservations can be made by calling Smoke Restaurant at (214) 393-4141.
