Chefs Stephan Pyles and Tim Byres Unveil New Programming at Flora Street Cafe

pyles

Chefs Stephan Pyles and Tim Byres of Stephan Pyles Flora Street Café at HALL Arts have unveiled their new plans in the evolution of the iconic Dallas restaurant. Experiential dining offerings include new lunch and dinner programming, a fresh spin on the tasting menu with its own luxury venue, and a brunch menu that has recently launched. The evolvement comes after the December announcement of the collaboration between Chef Stephan Pyles and Chef Tim Byres, formerly of the award-winning restaurant SMOKE.

“I never thought after 35 years of owning restaurants I would be this excited about a new direction,” said Chef Stephan Pyles.

This allows us the unique opportunity with Benchmark Global Hospitality to have some of our concepts at both ends of the DFW Metroplex and bring Stampede 66 in various forms to more people.”   Continue reading

Years ago, I will not admit how many, I read a book that contained recipes from several local chefs including Richard Chamberlain of his eponymous steakhouse in Addison, and Steven Pyles of the then wildly popular Routh Street Cafe. Both were young sprites with many years of success ahead of them. The book was called Great Chefs, Great Cities of the Southwest. I was enamoured.
