Trick Rider, an upscale steak and seafood concept paying homage to famed rodeo trick riders and Texas culture, will open this Spring 2023 at the new Omni PGA Frisco Resort at 4341 PGA Parkway, Frisco, TX 75033.
The signature dining concept from Omni Hotels & Resorts was inspired by Sydna Yokley Woodyard, a champion rodeo trick rider who was raised on a Texas ranch, a quarter horse breeder and founder of the American Quarter Horse Association.
The restaurant will feature a menu of premium cuts of in-house dry aged meats with an extensive butchery program as well as high-end seafood from around the world.
Executive Chef, Joshua Hasho has more than 24 years of experience in the hospitality industry and has been a part of the Omni team since 2012. He started his Omni career as the Executive Chef at Omni Chicago, gained resort experience at Omni Interlocken in Colorado and was most recently Executive Chef at Omni Barton Creek Resort.
Hasho says of the menu, “We are focusing on creating an authentic Texas dining experience through a thoughtful selection of the best cuts of meat available including a grand wagyu beef tasting, an extensive raw bar selection, east coast oysters, select shellfish from Australia, Hawaii and other spots around the globe flown in fresh daily. The curated beverage program complements the food beautifully with luxury wines, distilled spirits and handcrafted cocktails.”
Guests should feel immersed in the culture as they take in the design details including stitch leather Texas stars on the back of banquets, art throughout the space featuring female trick riders and custom wall art, walnut herringbone floors and cognac leather and fabrics reminiscent of fine liquors.
Affixed to the ceiling that is designed to emulate a star-filled Texas sky and is suspended above the bar is the standout design piece – a 16-foot long and 9-foot high, 1,500-pound, crystal horse chandelier. The showpiece was designed by Jeffrey Beers International and consists of 4,075 bohemian cut crystal beads carefully arranged on stainless steel wires.
The space offers seating for 115 in the dining area, 22 at the horseshoe-shaped bar and a private dining room that can accommodate 15 people.
Trick Rider will be open for dinner only.
