Chef Tim Byres, most well-known for his Dallas restaurant Smoke and the cookbook that it inspired, is getting in on the bowl trend at Legacy Hall.

The chef will open Tight Quarters, an aptly named stall at the Plano food hall that will serve “power bowls” in the space between Blist’r Naan Wraps and Bavazo Peruvian Rotisserie, according to a press release. For those who have missed the onslaught of “power bowls” in their Instagram feeds, the dish usually involves a base of grains or salad that is topped with proteins like chicken or tofu and, of course, more veggies.

Byres hasn’t released exact menu details for his new spot just yet, but diners probably shouldn’t expect for it to look much like Smoke or Chicken Scratch, his other Dallas restaurants. “After spending 25 years in a level 10 stress environment – the restaurant industry – I started to look for ways to add balance to my life,” Byres said in a statement. “ wanted to offer a fast, easy and wholesome dining experience that would allow guests to find equilibrium between a busy life and a better-for-you life.”

Tight Quarters Power Bowls is expected to make its Legacy Hall debut on Monday, June 25.
