Stock Hill is proud to announce the West & Friends Dinner featuring the talents of Stock Hill creative culinary minds: Chefs Joe West, Kelly Conwell, and Spencer Knipper, as well as invited guests from the West: Chef Troy Guard, Chef Michael Magliano, and Chef Khai Vu. The chefs will each present a course showcasing their unique talents and allowing them to express themselves. Wine pairings for each of the chefs’ courses are included.
Each of the chefs brings his own expertise to this special event dinner. Troy Guard, Chef/Owner of Denver’s Guard and Grace (and TAG Restaurant Group), began his culinary adventure in Hawaii, Seattle, and San Diego. To say the ocean is in his blood would be an understatement. He has worked alongside legendary fusion chef Roy Yamaguchi, traveled and opened outposts with Yamaguchi in Hong Kong, Tokyo and New York, spent time as Executive Chef of New York City hotspot TAO, and traveled to Singapore as Chef de Cuisine at world-renowned Doc Cheng’s restaurant at The Raffles Hotel. Here he developed the unique Pacific Rim style that he brought with him to Denver. Guard and Grace is Chef Guard’s 9000 square foot take on the modern American steakhouse, and just one of the ten restaurants he has opened in the Denver-Metro area.
Michael Magliano, a Kansas City native, is Executive Chef of West Hollywood’s private club Soho House. Chef Magliano also brings past experience with meats as Chef de Cuisine at Animal, a trendy minimalist New American restaurant in Los Angeles. Additionally, his background includes time spent with Son of a Gun, a nautical themed restaurant also in West Hollywood. His current position at Soho House gives him the unique opportunity to cater to the most demanding of palettes of Hollywood’s Upper Crust. According to Magliano, “We try to offer classic comfort food.” Chef Magliano’s approach to the West & Friends Dinner will be worth the price of admission.
Khai Vu was born in Vietnam in 1980. He came to the US in 1991. His inspiration for cooking comes from his grandmother’s kitchen and can be sampled at his restaurant, District One Kitchen & Bar, in Las Vegas. With 18 years of chef experience in restaurants such as Las Vegas’ Pho So 1 and Viet Noodle Le Pho, Chef Khai brings a unique take on the multi-coursed dinner event that will be fun to watch unfold from Stock Hill’s beautiful interior.
Alongside Chef Joe West and the Stock Hill staff, these renowned chefs will bring us a dinner experience we will not soon forget. The dinner will take place at Stock Hill on Wednesday, June 28 at 7pm. Tickets are $175 per seat. Don’t miss the chef experience of a lifetime, right here in Kansas City at our very own Stock Hill — a Kansas City Steakhouse.
