The Modern Tortilla Team
Modern Tortilla is Chef Tom D’Ambrosio’s (Co-Creator of Aioli Gourmet Burger) second project here in the valley. With partner Kyle Hollenbeck and their partner Michael, they grew Aioli Gourmet Burgers from one truck to three trucks and a catering company. Chef Tom is a Culinary Institute of America graduate of their Ace Program and has studied under Master Chef Richard Rosedale at the Greenbrier (A 5 diamond Resort) Apprenticeship. Chef Tom has taken his classical training and implemented his southwest roots into creating Modern Tortillas Menu.
Chef Tom’s partners consist of:
Ryan Pfile, Tom’s childhood friend, who has been in the restaurant industry his entire life. Ryan’s family founded DiVito’s Pizza and Ryan himself has been with Humble Pie for over seven years.
Kyle Hollenbeck is Tom’s partner with Aioli Gourmet Burgers, Aioli Gourmet Catering and now Modern Tortilla. Kyle comes from a family that has been in the restaurant business since he was born. Kyle’s background is in sales for companies like Yelp.com and LivingSocial.com which is what helped grow Aioli from one to three trucks.
