I wanted to offer these two restaurant reviews if you are looking for quality and a great culinary experience at any time of the year. I give both of these a “Chefsville” 5-star review!
My wife and I truly wanted a great experience when we went to Beckley 1115 and we were not disappointed. The food, service, quality, environment, and company are top-notch. The only problem was I wanted everything on the menu. So we went back and had an equally wonderful experience. Chef Sharon Van Meter is a prized jewel here in the Dallas area. Celebrated for many great accomplishments and wonderful personality. Seeing her made us so happy. Actually, she has been a great force of motivation for Chefsville since I met her.
Her cooking style is amazing. The value and food quality were equal. Everything had wonderful flavor. Some of the dishes had herbs, others were seasoned perfectly with spices. The appetizers were just outstanding. Salads had deliciously fresh ingredients with fun things in them. Desserts are wonderful. Seasonal menu items are 10 out of 10. I just can’t say enough about this place. It makes me so happy. Service was attentive and excellent. The atmosphere was better than a trip to Hawaii. The wine list had something for the adult taste.

Moving on to the Cathedral Bistro, there is a chef’s corner braved by Chef Luke Rogers. This young chef has accolades and a fantastic personality as well. He is able to keep his customers engaged in positive conversation while braving the fast pace of expediting dishes for other customers. Chef Luke just released his first cookbook and the restaurant highlights items therein. His menu has quality ingredients found in all kinds of settings from formal to fast casual. Pizzas are made by a professional who knows his craft. Chef Rogers surrounds himself with a wonderful team who have been with him for several years in this new establishment. Excellent steaks cooked in a wood fire oven. Fresh-made in-house various kinds of pasta grace incredible traditional dishes. We couldn’t eat everything there either so we went back. Several times over and I still haven’t had all of the menu as of yet.
The service will keep you coming back alone. The food quality is excellent. One item that stood out was their garlic knot rolls with wagyu beef marrow candles. But seriously the salads were stunning, the Branzino and other seasonal signature dishes are just the kind of comfort you want all year round.
The atmosphere is warm and inviting. There is a bar and TV sets which are just fun. The noise doesn’t come over to distract at the Chef’s Bar where there is seating for a dozen.
I strongly recommend these 2 signature, happy places and invite you to try them as well. I will also say that I promise you will not be disappointed. These chefs live for hospitality, community, family, and quality.
