5 Top Women in the Industry

The Editors with Jessica Elliott and Valerie Jarvie | June 14, 2018 | Feature Features

The forty-two finest things hitting the Dallas food scene.
Jill Bates

1. MONICA GREENE, THE CEDARS SOCÍAL
She’s been an industry disrupter since her first job at the age of 17 at The Statler on Commerce. What she did in Deep Ellum with Monica’s Aca y Alla, she’s now doing with her version of The Cedars Socíal in southwest Dallas. “I was born to serve and make a difference in the community,” says the 62-year-old. She was and she is.

2. JILL BATES, PASTRY CHEF, FEARING'S
“It’s the most challenging work,” says Bates of her sweet position at the namesake restaurant of James Beard Award-winning chef Dean Fearing at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. Overseeing a team of five, the Texas Tech and San Francisco Culinary Academy grad serves more than 60,000 guests a year. “Having a great team is key.”
