Corporate chef of over four restaurants in the Dallas Fort Worth area, John Franke does a balancing act with his time behind the scenes at some pretty innovative eateries.
Whiskey Cake, one of the restaurants Franke oversees, just popped up in Plano about four months ago and has already received raving reviews from many different publications. And deservedly so. Whiskey Cake’s concept of “farm to kitchen” can be described as locally sourced contemporary American cuisine.
With high ceilings, wooden tables, and a funky feel, Franke says they’ve strived for an Austin vibe. They make some of their own cheeses, pickles, potato chips, French fries and more. They even have their own little garden in the back.
