When the minds behind The Highland Dallas wanted to create the hotel’s centerpiece restaurant, they turned to James Beard-nominated chef John Tesar, who created Knife. Scoring a reservation at the steakhouse can be tough these days, even for registered guests. The solution? Order from Tesar’s menu, straight out of Knife’s kitchen, for in-room dining.

Targeted at Leslie Brenner, the food critic for the Dallas Morning News, the incident started a national conversation about the changing role of food critics and the outdated star-review system. But Brenner and those topics are just the beginning of what this outspoken chef is ready to put on blast.Read More
