FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DALLAS, TX, July 28, 2016 – Following an undisclosed acquisition on Monday, Tillman’s Roadhouse in Bishop Arts is under new management, and will undergo a comprehensive revamp within the next 60 to 90 days. A new culinary team and executive staff will accompany a refurbished structure, an innovative ambiance renovation and a fresh new menu.
Celebrity chef and CEO of The Spice of Life Catering and Innovative Hospitality Group Jeffrey Kollinger, and his brother Ross Kollinger, president & COO of both companies, purchased Tillman’s from Dallas-based event planner Todd Fiscus and Sara Tillman, original co-owner and wife of the late Ricky Tillman.
“We are excited about this next chapter for Tillman’s Roadhouse,” said Jeffrey Kollinger. “This renovation will preserve the iconic footprint that Sara, Ricky and Todd created in Bishop Arts, and allow us to expand into new concepts and inventive state-of-the-art cuisine.”
Leading the new Tillman’s culinary team will be executive chef Michael Morabito, a California native and son of the world class executive chef, Dominic Morabito. Equipped with over 30 years of elite culinary experience, Morabito has mentored under the tutelage of Arnauld Briand of Lyon, France, and most notably working side-by-side with Dean Fearing at The Mansion on Turtle Creek.
“We are confident that we will offer the best dining experience in Bishop Arts,” Morabito said. “Dallas has fallen in love with Jeffrey’s original catering dishes, and under his vision, our culinary team has been working steadfast to design a world class menu.”
Throughout the transition, patrons can expect to see changes in the menu selections, new weekday specials and the look and feel of Tillman’s. Menu additions are already in place for the weekend brunch crowd. A complete relaunch and grand re-opening is tentatively scheduled for mid-fall.
