World class chef Stephan Pyles’ latest creation, Stampede 66, is an ode to his Texas childhood. The menu is filled with tastes of Texas but with a gourmet twist, leaving you with a feel for the Lone Star State in a fancy sort of way.
The restaurant is as much about the food as the décor. Every piece of art and design Pyles had a hand in, and much of what diners see has a story behind it.
“If I’m going to take somebody from out of town that is going to experience kind of kitschy Texas but I want to have a good time and have good food, this is going to be on my list,” said Mike Hiller, food critic and editor of EscapeHatchDallas.com.
