Under new management. The saying usually sends a cringing shiver down the spine, but not this time. Enter Jared Moss, the new restaurant manager at NYLO Plano's LOCL restaurant. When you first meet him, he might seem a little bit intimidating with his burly looks and high class suspenders. With a Sinatra mystique, and a nice warm handshake, he greets with a smile. He gave this examiner an opportunity to learn more about the changes that have been made around NYLO since he took over management.
We might have a New Years Eve Party, but we are hoping for an older, more refined crowd. - Jared Moss
What changes have been made, you might ask? Well, for starters, there aren't going to be any more parties geared at the younger generation. They have nixed the crazy Halloween Parties, the Mardi Gras Parties, and the Cinco de Mayo Parties. They said that now, they are changing tunes, vying for the 30's plus, more upscale crowd. Think people with families who are out on a date night as couples, business cocktails, and billiards with an upscale Whisky. The restaurant has a new menu developed with their executive chef Anthony Knight that has been geared more towards shared plates. They offer many tasty hors d'ourves, and the cheese tray is highly recommended. They are also currently in the works of possibly offering high class beverage tastings, for those with more refined tastes.
So what makes the LOCL Restaurant so appealing, besides their great menu? They have a beautiful courtyard that surrounds an elegant pool. They also offer poolside beverage service, which is a nice plus. So people can lounge and chat next to the pool with a lovely glass of one of the fine wines that they offer, and nibble on some fine cheese from their beautiful cheese tray.
We host a lot of private events now. The most recent one was a Bat Mitzvah that had around 150 people.- Jared Moss
With the gears of the hotel turned more away from public events to more private events, the class level of the hotel has risen. Weddings, Quincenera's, Bat Mitzvahs, Birthday Parties, and higher class, more exclusive private events are the new trend at this hotel. When asked why the changes, Mr. Moss replied, "We wanted to make our hotel guests more comfortable, as well as get away from the younger, louder crowd. We have a lot less broken things too like tables, glasses and chairs, which can be a nuisance for our guests."
The NYLO Plano is close enough to the hustle and bustle of Frisco, but are tucked neatly away off of Preston to provide a little bit of seclusion as well.
