Toko V opened last week in Highland Park Village. Besides being given this gift of new Asian cuisine, there’s something else Dallas should be raising the roof about. Executive chef Andre Natera is in charge, while still executive cheffing at Village Kitchen. Both restaurants are owned by Twomey Concept, which means Twomey Concept must have tons of money.
It would be a lie for anyone to imply this Andre Natera information did not bring forth happiness. Non-cheerful people have obviously never had the Fruity Pebbles milkshake from Village Kitchen downstairs. These same unhappy people have yet to experience chef Natera’s loaded baked potato gnocchi dish either. Even angry Yelp people couldn’t possibly muster up Yelp-courage to talk smack about Andre Natera. He is one of the best chefs around. Please take this directly to the bank.
Natera explains, “The food – like the decor and atmosphere – is vibrant, fun and approachable. We have incorporated a number of Asian cultures into this menu. Working as a chef in Southern California, a melting pot for American Asian cuisine, I found myself taking inspiration from that time in my career.”
Toko V’s cocktail program champion, Andrew Lostetter, has created a cocktail menu complimenting every aspect of Toko V’s food menu. As ingredients change throughout the season, Lostetter welcomes the challenge of cocktails changing as well.
For people who get lost easily, Village Kitchen is located on the ground floor. The Marquee Bar is above the theater and Toko V is pleasantly placed on the second floor. Just ask a hostess. Hostesses are required to know answers to restaurant questions. True story.
Veteran sushi chef Daniel Chau, who previously head sushi cheffed at Steel Restaurant & Lounge, is in charge of perfecting sushi from one end of traditional to the other. Please believe everything at Toko V will win simply because executive chef Andre Natera is a winner.
