Chef Stephan Pyles is Dallas Observers 2018, Readers Choice for Best Chef!
Stephan Pyles is no stranger to accolades and awards, but he particularly enjoys when his own customers think he's doing a good job.
When Chef Pyles announced he was opening Flora Street Cafe, he was teased that he was swimming against the tide with a fine-dining restaurant. Obviously, those naysayers were way off base.
Chef Stephan Pyles says, "There will always be place for fine dining, a certain type of experience. In Dallas, I felt like that was what was missing. There’s brilliant food here in Dallas. It’s all very casual. It’s for Millennials. It’s good. It’s not about a quiet, dignified experience in a beautiful setting with superb service and food. The trick is to be small. That’s why Flora Street Cafe has only 70 seats."
