After the closure of popular Fort Worth eatery American Food + Beverage, popular Dallas chef Jeff Harris has been notably missing from Dallas’ dining scene. Fortunately, the chef has officially made his return.

Announced via release, Harris has officially accepted the position of executive chef at Knox-Henderson institution Victor Tangos. Prior to earning rave reviews at AF+B, Harris served as executive chef at Bolsa and Bolsa Mercado. Harris replaces Kirstyn Brewer in the position, who left late last year to start working on the Chinese-American eatery that will soon take over the space on Lower Greenville that once housed Remedy.

Harris will take a slow-going approach to revamping the menu at Victor Tangos, but has already added a few of his own new dishes to the mix, like roasted cauliflower served with green mole, grapefruit, and charred tortilla. “Victor Tangos is a place where people come to hang out and celebrate, and the menu and vibe will continue to reflect that,” Harris said in a statement. “From the glass to the plate and everything in between, the restaurant is always alive and buzzing. We’re going to keep the plates playful and memorable.”

If you’ve been missing out on Harris’ Texas-inspired cuisine, thank the stars above that enjoying it no longer requires a lengthy drive out to Cowtown.
