Young Chef Julian Rodarte was handed Trinity Groves Dallas Restaurant Group after Phil Romano names him CEO according to a Dallas Morning News article from April 13 which reports,
“A 29-year-old chef is taking over as the CEO of Trinity Groves’ restaurants in West Dallas.
Julian Rodarte, the co-chef and co-owner of Mexican restaurant Beto & Son, has been tapped by longtime Dallas restaurateur Phil Romano to reimagine the restaurant park.
“Let me tell you what’s happening: I’m getting old,” Romano says. “I’m 83 years old.”
And Trinity Groves — a place with a big patio, breweries nearby and graffiti art on the walls — needs a young visionary.”
The young chef and now CEO, is delighted to take over as he has already set his eyes on different restaurants that will culminate into a larger and expanded culinary scene according to a CultureMap Dallas article from April 12. They say,
“Rodarte will launch the newest restaurant concept set to open in the old Casa Rubia and Souk space, with plans for two more restaurant concepts to open later this year.
Romano says in a statement that Rodarte “has the creativity to create exciting and unique concepts that better cater to today’s generation.”
Rodarte says in a statement that he’s excited to take the baton, which we mentioned in the very first sentence of this story, and implement his “Next-Gen Twist” on the new restaurants he’ll be opening at Trinity Groves.
“Over the next few years, we have a very exciting vision for the expansion of our city’s culinary scene and we look forward to creating more iconic Dallas brands like Beto & Son, Cake Bar and Kate Weiser,” Rodarte says.”
Phil Romano together with Butch McGregor and Stuart Fitts, formed Trinity Groves back in 2014 which revolved around Romano’s ideas and concepts as he constantly changed it from time to time.
