Chef Profile: Kenny Bowers

Kenny Bowers, Executive Chef and Founder, Kennyʼs Wood Fired Grill, Kennyʼs Burger Joint and Kennyʼs Italian Kitchen

A native New Englander, Kenny Bowers began his career forming a partnershipin 1992 with well-known chef/restaurateur and fellow New England native Jack Chaplin. The two brought their home-town recipes to North Texans, creating Daddy Jackʼs Lobster & Chowder House on Greenville Avenue in Dallas. The original restaurant was only 1,600 square feet, had 50 seats and served dinner only accompanied by beer and wine only, yet served to a full house nearly every night.

After 7 years of developing and building independent concepts, such as Leftyʼs Lobster and Chowder House and Big Fish Little Fish, plus six years as a corporate chef, Kenny teamed up with friend and colleague Bob Stegall, a 20-year restaurant operator of both single and multi units. They created the very popular, upscale restaurant Kennyʼs Wood Fired Grill in Addison.

In December, 2008, Kenny opened Kennyʼs Burger Joint in Frisco, and he recently opened his third concept, Kennyʼs Italian Kitchen in Addison. Bower continues to be a popular guest on local television programs, and is a favorite of both diners and critics.
