It’s been a long road, but Chef Kent Rathbun is officially back in action. After more than three years of red tape following his departure from Abacus, Jasper’s and Hickory, Rathbun is now free of any restrictions.
Diners can find Rathbun working in the kitchen at Imoto, the sushi and pan-Asian restaurant he opened in Victory Park in 2018. To keep things fresh, Rathbun and Imoto executive sushi chef Jimmy Duke recently traveled to Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto to learn new flavors and techniques. With the help of chef de cuisine Steve McHugh, they have updated the Imoto menu to include Japanese curry, new sushi items, a smoked udon noodle bowl and a sashimi salad inspired by items they ate at Tokyo’s fish market.

Thanksgiving may be over, but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to stop eating turkey. In fact, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company would argue the opposite—and then they’d partner with one of Dallas’s best chefs to put some turkey on a pizza.
Created by Chef Kent Rathbun, the Wild Turkey Pizza is topped with One90 smoked turkey, gruyére cheese, Alfredo sauce, caramelized onions, mushrooms, spinach and prosciutto, and it’s served with a side cranberry sauce. It tastes like a delicious holiday plate, but in this case, the plate is a pizza—and therefore better. Continue reading →

Four Corners Brewing Company celebrated its fifth year of throwing the very tasty festival Dia de los Puercos on October 22nd at its Cedar Dallas location. A fun nod to Dia de los Muerdos, Dia de Los Puercos is loosely translated to ‘day of the dirty pig’ or ‘scoundrel,’ though in this case, it more like ‘day of the very talented chefs and brewing scoundrels.’
Three super-star chefs roasted whole hogs on site for party goers to sample and the chef teams started way before dawn! Each chef had a different technique in roasting their very large puercos pals, and each was absolutely, mouthwatering delicious. The aromas throughout the courtyard were almost edible in and of themselves. Continue reading →
