The burgeoning dining destination of East Cesar Chavez shows no signs of slowing down with the addition of Tillery, the Mediterranean-influenced restaurant opening on Friday, January 13.
The family-operated restaurant and hangout spot is run by Daniel Keshvari and his father Keivan. Executive chef Justin Trapani (an alum of Zoot Restaurant among others) is helming the kitchen and will be dishing out a loosely Mediterranean-based menu with New American marks. Expect skewers, lamb fritters, pappardelle and fettuccine pasta dishes, Greek salad, and sandwiches like the Cubano pork confit, and more. The dessert menu includes a house-made ice cream flight.
Eater photographer Courtney Pierce took a tour of the bright modern space, intended to be an extension of its natural surroundings. Designed by architect Craig Nasso and interior design firm Slic Interiors, Tillery is the combination of two buildings. The smaller building houses the kitchen, restrooms, and offices, while the larger holds the dining room and bar and showcases a pitched ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows that face a patio overlooking the Colorado River. Together, the dining area and the patio seat up to 90 people.
Tillery will welcome digital nomads and is equipped with many plugs (inside and out) and wifi. The venue is also being offered for company meetings, and social events and celebrations, including weddings.
Tillery’s hours are from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the weekends.
