On Wednesday, August 29, a special group of very lucky moms and children were invited to sample Village Marquee – Texas Grill & Bar’s children’s menu offerings by Chef Tre Wilcox at an invitation only event dubbed “The Kids Are Alright”.
Tre Wilcox is best known for his stint on Bravo’s “Top Chef” and “Top Chef All Stars” TV shows. Having worked at fine establishments like Abacus and Loft 610, in 2011 Tre opened his own restaurant, Marquee Grill, at the iconic shopping center–Highland Park Village. Along with the new kids menu comes the name change.
Hamilton Sneed knew exactly who to ask to critique the kids cuisine! A private dining experience was held for Gina Ginsburg, owner of The Hair Bar, with sons Jonathon and William, Cathy Vieth, CEO and president of LTR & Construction with daughter Chanel, Lauren Preston, manager of the Stella McCartney Dallas store with twin sons Dries and Henrick, Ask Miss A‘s Dena Miller with kids Gigi and Vaughn and Real Posh Mom fashion blogger Jennifer Buxton with children Jaydn and Judah.
The kids ordered from the menu and what dishes weren’t ordered were brought out and sampled by all. After taste testing everything from the menu, the kids wrote down their reviews for Chef Tre. With his little critics’ help, the final menu debuted for the public on Friday, just in time for Labor Day weekend family dining.
Reservations are suggested, but when Dena and Gigi showed up on Friday night, they were accommodated in the packed house.
