Oblivion Taproom names new executive chef
Oblivion says new chef will introduce a new menu
We just learned today that Oblivion Taproom is ringing in the new year with a new executive Chef. Per Facebook:
A new year begins, and with it comes big news. We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of Chef Bill, our new exec! Look for a brand new menu to be rolled out in the coming weeks. We think you’ll love what he’s cooking up, including a big selection of delicious burgers! Thanks to Bruno for bringing us his tasty food in 2013, now let’s celebrate 2014! Get your tastebuds ready!
We sent Oblivion a message to ask for more details about Chef Bill, and this is what they told us:
Chef Bill Roberts is his full name, he worked in the past at Vines Grille & Wine Bar, Funky Monkey and the Nick’s Italian Kitchen in Orlando, as well as a number of places in South Florida including the Monarch Country Club. He also worked for us in the past under Chef Goody for about a year. He’s a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Orlando.
On Roberts’ Facebook page, he promises to roll out a new menu over the next three weeks.
Roberts will be taking over from Chef Bruno Zacchini, who took the job on in April, after Chef Goody – Jim Goodman – left Oblivion to take a job at the now-defunct Shipyard Pub, which suddenly called it quits in August. Which was a shame, because we liked what he did with Shipyard’s menu in the short time he was there.
