Jillian’s introduction to the world of hospitality and spirits began in the fine dining establishments of Elements & Jade Bar in Paradise Valley, Ariz., before going on to study Hospitality Administration at Northern Arizona University. A former Whiskey Ambassador for Campari America, co-managing its Women & Whiskies program, Jillian also won the 2013 Rising Stars award from Star Chefs.
Before taking over as Bar Manager and Beverage Director at The Dead Rabbit, she ran the bar program at Death & Co., where her responsibilities included developing menus.
It's a skill she has put to great use here, shaping both our award-winning third and fourth menus.
So, how’s it been, the journey from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to Manhattan?
Pull up a stool and ask her. She’ll be happy to tell ya.
