Kansas native and Austinite of the last decade, Tyler Johnson has been announced as the executive chef of the new restaurant inside the old Screaming Goat location entitled, Bacon.
Johnson clawed his way through the ranks of local Mexican restaurant, Flores, before attending and graduating from Texas Culinary Academy in 2007.
After a stint as chef de cuisine at the Marriot Hotel, Chef Johnson opened his own food trailer; Along Came A Slider to largely positive press. Along Came A Slider shuttered earlier this year.
The owners of the Bacon concept definitely have their finger on the pulse if it was still 2009.
We’re curious to see if the bacon mania that has gripped America these past few years is going to go quietly into the night or if it’s going to have real staying power.
We’ll find out soon enough as the restaurant is slated for a September opening.
