Chef Change: Patton Robertson gone from Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty in Dallas, now exec chef at Sissy’s


Patton Robertson has decamped from the kitchen at Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty atop Reunion Tower for a top chef job at Lisa Garza-Selcer’s southern inflected restaurant, Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar, and a new project the Garza-Selcer’s been developing. Robertson wrapped up his work at Five Sixty a week and half ago. A spokesperson for Five Sixty confirms Roberston’s departure, adding that they’ll announce a new chef soon. “We wish Chef Pat well as he has been a longtime member of the Wolfgang Puck family and know that he will be an asset to any kitchen he oversees.”

Under Robertson, Five Sixty became a fantastic local restaurant. I always appreciated the quality and integrity of his food.

Robertson says he and Garza-Selcer have tweaked the menu at Sissy’s and plan to run “five to seven” seasonal blackboard specials a week. The two will also debut a new concept in downtown Dallas this fall called Shelby Hall (named for the county where Lisa was born), whose “modern regional cuisine (will focus) on the Mississippi Delta and Lowcountry, and a bourbon-heavy beverage program.”

“The menu will pay homage to Delta and Lowcountry classics, with a focus on seafood dishes, rotisserie game and fowl, and an oyster/raw bar. The beverage program will be anchored by signature Jim Beam white and brown bourbon barrel-aged cocktails, and a curated wine and beer list,” says a company spokesperson.

Shelby Hall will be located at 1525 Elm Street in the LTV Tower (which will also include a new Hilton Garden Inn and luxury residences).
