It’s small and intimate, yet bursting with flavor. ORNO Restaurant at 3908 Cedar Springs in Dallas, Texas is the designated spot for celebrity chef Ty Frazier and his wife Denise Harper Frazier of Our Door to Yours Catering to deliver a dine-in or to-go experience.

Chef Ty’s Fried Scrimp & Gritz Cakes

Known for his signature and mouth-watering Scrimp & Gritz, from previous brick and mortar establishments to crowds lined up at his booth during the State Fair of Texas, Chef Ty often brings an elegant twist to Cajun classics.

Whether kicked-up, seasoned and fried catfish or blackened and loaded with a special lobster, crawfish and shrimp sauce; to a gumbo with a dark and rich roux so good you could drink it by itself, the Frazier duo behind this Our Door to Yours ORNO Takeover featuring Chef Ty are after something different.

“What we’re doing is we’re going for the night life,” Denise Harper Frazier said. “Everybody’s got their niche in the City and we’re gonna niche in on the night life.”

Frazier favorites are plated up for what Denise calls “Dinner Dine” from 5:00 pm-10:00 pm on Thursday through Sunday. They then seek the palates of the night owls for “Twilight” hours starting at 10:00 pm until 2:00 am on Thursdays and 4:00 am on Fridays and Saturdays.

“So basically, we want everybody that’s hungry after 9:00 and there’s nowhere to go eat,” Denise said.

Chef Ty has been on the scene for a number of years and he beamed with pride at the chance to bring his culinary skills from Our Door to Yours to the table.

“It’s such a blessing to be able to be afforded this opportunity for what we do and the grind we’ve been through,” Chef Ty said. As he looked at his recently wedded wife, he added, “And the love we have for each other, first of all, and the passion that I have for what we do; a commitment to not only just this city, but to the community, everybody at home. We love what we do and we just want to keep on doing it.”

Just outside the restaurant, and in the night sky, the couple’s energy was magnetic as they lifted each other up.

“I’m excited that he has this platform, cause you guys know we gon’ give it to ya!” Denise said. “And now you can come in and have fine dining where he’s going to plate it up for you as you see it on social media all the time; we’re going to have all kinds of specials, and if there’s something that you want, just let me know and it will show up.”

The doors to the takeover officially opened on January 28, 2021 which happened to be the Mrs.’s special day.

“This is a birthday gift to her,” Chef Ty said as he smiled at Denise. 

At a time in the world where so many have lost so much, the Fraziers have gained an opportunity during the pandemic. In unison, they answered with whom they give credit to.



“God first of all,” Denise said. “God and hungry people!”
