Breaking: Chef Graham Dodds is out at the Dallas Statler Hotel and its bevy of restaurants
“We parted ways,” is how chef Graham Dodds describes his surprise split yesterday with the Statler Hotel in downtown Dallas, where he served as culinary director overseeing the relatively new hotel’s Overeasy, Scout and Fine China restaurants.
Dodds was mum on details, but a tipster tells the Hatch that the top chefs at Scout and Overeasy also decamped.
Not sure who made the call — the chefs or management — but something needed to change; my experiences at the hotel and its restaurants had been uneven at best.
