Tre Wilcox, executive chef at Twomey's Loft 610, will be collaborating on the new restaurant, as Wilcox sort of mentioned to us in our interview with him last October.

Del Frisco No Mo
Del Frisco's co-founder Dee Lincoln is stepping down from the steak house chain (which battled for our Best Steakhouse Golden Local last year) to "create and expand new national restaurant and wine concepts," including a concept in Cowboys Stadium.
Dee Lincoln's Tasting Room & Bubble Bar, has been entertaining Cowboys fans since the opening of the stadium, but Dallas and Fort Worth expansions of the brand are in the works.
