Dallas' restaurant industry has honored Abacus as "Best Restaurant" and for "Best Design".

Kent's achievements demonstrate how his creativity, dedication and continuous innovation have given him an impressive reputation in the industry. Kent learned the business from the ground up, working long hours as a dishwasher before becoming a cook. Having stumbled onto work he loved, he found that cooking uninspiring meals in average restaurants simply wasn't enough for him. His passion landed him an apprentice job at La Bonne Auberge, a Five Star French restaurant in Kansas City.
