The King of Smoked Meat and Fried Chicken Opens a New Healthy Restaurant in Plano’s Hip Food Hall: Power Bowls Await

BY // 06.22.18

Celebrity chef Tim Byres is bringing his expertise to Plano with the opening of his third restaurant concept, Tight Quarters. The brand new stand will be located on the first floor of Legacy West’s European-style food hall and will feature wholesome ingredients.

Byres is a regular on food TV, with appearances on The Chew, Meatopia, Bizarre Foods America and Man Fire Food. The southwest Food & Wine Magazine gave him “People’s Best New Chef” honors. Byres also won a James Beard Award for his book, Smoke: New Firewood Cooking.

Byres is already known for his Dallas-based restaurants SMOKE and Chicken Scratch. Now, you may be wondering why the father of smoked meat and fried chicken wants anything to do with a healthy food stall? It’s all about balance.

As the owner of two “meat-centric” restaurants, Byres wants to “find equilibrium between a busy life and a better-for-you life” by bringing healthy food to people fast. Byres’ new approach is all about “living your best life, at the age you are; the best you right now, without compromise or counting calories.”

Tight Quarters aims to be fun for your taste buds without compromising your summer body or hard work in the gym. Not to mention, the anticipated new menu features a Power Bowl that does not shy away from bold flavors. Byres’ take on healthy food is sure to build intrigue.

It’s coming to the Legacy Hall food hall, located in Plano’s multi-billion dollar mega development Legacy West at 7800 Windrose Avenue. Suddenly, Plano has even more new food cred.
