Jon Stevens is this crazy good chef that has more than proven his stock in the Dallas food scene, and beyond. In recent years the good chef has been investing in himself with his venerable Stock and Barrel, and more recently Foxyco which resides in the former Bridge Bistro in the Design District.
Stevens found his chops at the stoop of Traci Des Jardins of San Francisco’s Jardiniere. He also worked at Mecca and French regional Flytrap before landing at the Ritz Carlton where he worked up to a sous position just years later. It was then that Stevens found himself in Dallas as sous for the wildly understated but powerful talent, Chris Ward at the Mercury where he worked for a few years before hopping the fast moving Kent Rathbun train cheffing at Abacus, then opening Jaspers in 2003. It was there Stevens finally opened as chef at Aurora for Avner Samuels working for 2 years.
Soon Stevens made the jump for his own restaurant, Stock and Barrel wich has become a staple if Bishop Artsd. Then he opened Foxyco, which is coyly named for his lovely wife MG.
Today Stevens sends word of a beautiful wine dinner January 30th, and you won’t wish to miss.
