Francisco Aquado

Executive Chef Winewood Grill

1265 S. Main St., Grapevine

817.421.0200 / 


The best part about cooking and creating a dish is that it brings people together.

 With 14 years of culinary experience behind him, Francisco Aquado knows what it takes to prepare a good meal. After spending time in the kitchens of large chains like Fleming’s Steak House and Bob’s Steak and Chop House as well as privately owned restaurants like Fusco’s (owned by Chef Michael Fusco) and La Villa Restaurant at the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa, Aquado now serves as the executive chef at Winewood. He says the restaurant’s menu is special because it pairs unconventional ingredients with those that are more well-known and traditional—like those found in the tenderloin bruschetta (tomato jam, arugula and pesto). To Aquado food offers never-ending possibilities when it comes to pairing flavors, discovering new elements and creating dishes.
