Dining in Dallas

Chef Tiffany Derry


From IHOP, to the Art Institute of Houston, to “Top Chef,” Chef Tiffany Derry has certainly worked her way up in the culinary world. She opened the renowned, now closed, restaurant ‘Private Social’ with partner Patrick Halbert before leaving to pursue a successful career in food television. You can watch her on Spike TV’s ‘Hungry Investors’ and ‘Bar Rescue’, Fox’s “Good Day” culinary segments, and various other appearances as an expert on cooking and hospitality.

A friend of the Dallas Independent School District and The North Texas Food Bank, she’s not only a TV personality for the fame and fortune, but genuinely for a love of culinary arts and advocating the importance of them. It shouldn’t be hard keeping tabs on Chef Derry, being an Art Institute’s Culinary Arts Program spokesperson, a member of Les Dames d’Escoffier (an organization dedicated to the philanthropic work of women leaders in the world of food and hospitality), and owning her own company, Tiffany Derry Concepts.

1820 W Mockingbird Ln Dallas, Texas
Smokey John’s Bar-B-Que and Home Cooking first opened its doors for business in 1976 on the corner of Lemmon and Mockingbird under the name of “Big John’s”. Soon, this busy intersection was filled with the alluring aroma of burning hickory. The hickory smoke became the signature of the neighborhood. Owner John Reaves earned the name “Smokey John” and the name change soon followed.
