A graduate Dallasâ€™ Thomas Jefferson High School, Chef Manuel “Manny” Vera discovered his love of cooking at the age of seven in his mother Julia’s kitchen. A culinary calling led him to Truluckâ€™s, a mere eight miles south of â€œTJ,â€ where he signed on as a prep cook. â€œDallas runs deep in my blood, and is a big part of who I am,â€ says Chef Manny. â€œI am blessed to do what I love, in a city that I love.â€
Fast forward through aÂ 20-year tenure at Truluckâ€™s Uptown, and youâ€™ll find Chef Manny at the helm of all things culinary, and a partner in the organization. â€œThe freshest seafood, prepared in innovative ways. Crab from around the world you canâ€™t find anywhere else in Dallas. Constant innovation is a must. But timelessÂ classics bring great pride and joy to a Chef.Â My personal favorite is a beautifully marbledÂ ribeye cooked with just the right crust. No guest grows tired of seeing it, and Iâ€™ll neverÂ grow tired of serving it.â€ saysÂ Chef Manuel Vera.
