As Executive Chef and Partner for Dallas’ award-winning restaurant, The Mercury, Chef Ward has utilized his extensive cooking experiences from around the globe to create a truly unique menu. Enjoy new American cuisine with French and Asian influences, producing unexpected and celebrated flavor combinations which have gained recognition in Gourmet Magazine’s Top Ten in Texas, Food & Wine Magazine’s Best New Restaurant, and Travel & Leisure Magazine’s “America’s Top 50”.

As of June 2019, GALT entered into a two+ year lease of a private boarding kennel, in anticipation of the influx of Greyhounds due to current industry changes. It is a constant challenge for GALT to meet the increasing medical and boarding expenses for our greys. Chef Ward is a true Friend of GALT’s greyhounds, who always donates for this event.

You can join Chef Ward in supporting GALT’s greys by attending and enjoying some of his fabulous food!
