Omni Hotel Frisco taps former CBD Provisions chef Richard Blankenship and Neighborhood Services vet Michael Salerno to lead splashy new restaurant

 announced today that Richard Blankenship, who recently exited as chef of CBD Provisions, will lead the culinary operations of the new Omni Hotel Frisco, including its marquee Neighborhood Services restaurant. (We told you almost exactly one year ago that owner Nick Badovinus would be expanding his NS collection to the new Frisco hotel.)

Michael Salerno, most recently the GM of Neighborhood Services in Addison, will lead the management side. Prior to NS, he served in assistant general manager positions for Fireside Pies in Plano, Te Front Room at Hotel Lumen in Highland Park, and Salerno’s Restaurant in Flower Mound.

Omni Hotel Frisco is expected to open this summer.
