Andrew Dilda, most recently of Barter restaurant in Dallas, is returning to the culinary team at Reata Restaurant in Fort Worth’s Sundance Square.

Dilda, 35, has more than 15 years of experience in the culinary industry, and did some of his first work at Reata from 1996-1998, while he was still in high school. He worked for seven years at Central Market, and also had stints at CBD Provisions in Dallas, Fort Worth’s Woodshed Smokehouse and the now closed Angeluna restaurant in Fort Worth. In 2014, Dilda’s team won Dallas’ annual “Meat Fight” competition.

“We’re excited about the addition of Andrew to our talented culinary team,” said Mike Micallef, president of Reata Restaurant. “Andrew’s creativity and leadership will collaborate well with our longtime crew for in-house as well as catering menus.”

Dilda grew up in Northern California and credits being around those bold flavors and fresh ingredients for leading him into the culinary field at a young age, where he started by bussing tables.

“This week is the perfect time to start with Reata,” Dilda said. “I’m excited to be assisting with the restaurant’s involvement at the second annual Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival, and look forward to seeing old Fort Worth friends throughout this fun-filled culinary weekend.”

The Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival is March 26-29 at various locations throughout the city.
