Dali Wine Bar chef going to Green Room in Dallas’ Deep Ellum
Commute not that different from One Arts Plaza.
DALLAS The Green Room in Deep Ellum is pleased to announce Joel Harloff as its executive chef.
“Joel was on our wish list, but not necessarily our short list. When Dali closed last week, a mutual friend put us in touch, and after several meetings over the Fourth of July weekend, we recognized that Joel understood our goals for the Green Room and we liked his direction for developing our ideas for the menu and the restaurant in general,” says Green Room Managing Partner Taylor Allday.
Harloff has been associated with many four- and five-star restaurants in his home state of Wisconsin, as well as in New York and Texas. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, he has had the honor of winning the 2002 Sur la Table Iron Chef competition, cooking at the James Beard House in New York, and being recognized by The Dallas Morning News as a “Rising Star Chef of 2001.” In the Dallas area alone, Harloff has served as sous chef at Bistro 1401 and Nana Grill, and executive chef for Mi Piaci, the Landmark at the Melrose Hotel, and Dali Wine Bar.
“To be a part of the team bringing a restaurant that was long considered a Dallas icon back is an honor and a challenge in itself. The timing is perfect, and I welcome both,” says Green Room Executive Chef Joel Harloff.
At the Green Room, Harloff will create a dynamic menu that changes regularly, not just seasonally, and have the freedom to further develop the “Feed Me, Wine Me” dinners. Additionally, Harloff will be developing a specialized seasonal menu for the rooftop deck and extended Sunday brunch.
The Green Room is currently booking parties and private dinners as part of an extended soft opening and will be open to the public later this month.
The restaurant is located at 2715 Elm Street, Dallas, Texas 75226. For more information, please visit www.greenroomdallas.com or call 214.744.ROOM.
