When you’re looking for a job, the saying goes that it’s not what you know, but who you know. Legendary Dallas restaurateur Phil Romano has come up with a new way for millennials to have networking opportunities. According to a Dallas Morning News story, Romano has created a speakeasy-style, members-only networking bar in West Dallas’ trendy Trinity Groves.

As a corporate chef for one of the nation’s largest restaurant corporations, Julian Rodarte’s father wanted his son to become a doctor, lawyer or pretty much anything outside the culinary industry. But young Julian was awestruck by the man’s passion for food early on.

Phil Romano is paving the way for the next generation of Dallas entrepreneurs. The restaurateur famous for founding Macaroni Grill and Fuddrucker’s also founded Trinity Groves as a restaurant incubator. Now, he’s taking a piece of the successful development and creating a home base for the city’s most avid networkers.
