Cook Hall, the new W Hotel gastropub replacing the recently closed Craft Dallas, is ramping up for an October opening and has just announced that Rick Graff will lead the kitchen. Graff, who is a graduate of El Centro's culinary program, was in the kitchen at Craft from the time it opened in 2006 until 2009, and since then has played the role of banquet chef at the W.

The soon-to-open hotel restaurant is also holding a contest to drum up excitement for the new spot: Winner gets the ("priceless", as the press release declares) privilege of having the first butt to grace a Cook Hall seat on opening night, plus $250 of free food and drink.

New York-based Culinary Concepts Hospitality Group is already planning a second Cook Hall location, to open at the W in Atlanta later this year.
