LAKEVIEW — Popular local brewery DryHop is changing up its menu in April amid a change in kitchen leadership.
Chef Pete Repak, a Charlie Trotter alum, is leaving on "good terms," Dryhop owner Greg Shuff said in a statement. The new executive chef, Joel Pillar, started at the brewery as lead cook and quickly rose to be Repak's sous chef.
Pillar's new menu aims to "convey craft beer culture on a plate," according to the brewery at 3155 N. Broadway.
New items include green curry mussels, bone-in pork chop, fish tacos and a sweet corn panna cotta.
Changes will start on April 3.
Food has always been a popular draw to DryHop since it opened in June. On its grand opening weekend, the restaurant and brewery had to close after running out of ingredients.
"We’re excited to have Joel step into the executive chef role and can’t wait to unveil his new version of our menu next month," Shuff said.
