ROOSTER & THE TILL + ‘THE DINNER SERIES’
Rooster & the Till introduced a five installment collaborative dinner series with some of the country’s most buzzed about chefs who joined Chef Ferrell Alvarez (James Beard Foundation “Best Chef: South” Semifinalist, 2017) and the Rooster & the Till crew.
The dinners featured a full beverage pairing program curated by Co-Owner Ty Rodriguez and Rooster & the Till manager, Myles Gallagher and an executed meal intended to showcase the U.S’ most forward-thinking cuisine.
“We’re hosting the series because we admire these guys, we want to showcase talent from across the country and help put Tampa Bay on the forefront for the national culinary conversation. The menus we’re doing won’t be safe or mundane; they’re for the adventurous and curious — we’re really humbled to have the opportunity.”
