A graduate Dallas’ 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 Truluck’s, a mere eight miles south of “TJ,” where he signed on as a prep cook. “Dallas runs deep in my blood, and is a big part of who I am,” says Chef Manny. “I am blessed to do what I love, in a city that I love.”

Fast forward through a 20-year tenure at Truluck’s Uptown, and you’ll find Chef Manny at the helm of all things culinary, and a partner in the organization. “The freshest seafood, prepared in innovative ways. Crab from around the world you can’t find anywhere else in Dallas. Constant innovation is a must. But timeless classics bring great pride and joy to a Chef. My personal favorite is a beautifully marbled ribeye cooked with just the right crust. No guest grows tired of seeing it, and I’ll never grow tired of serving it.” says Chef Manuel Vera.
