Stonebreaker Welcomes Arkansas Native Tyler Rogers as Executive Chef

We’re thrilled to announce the appointment of Tyler Rogers as the Executive Chef of the restaurant at Stonebreaker, the upcoming multifaceted hospitality destination coming to Markham Hill!

An Arkansas native raised in Magnolia, Chef Rogers brings a distinguished culinary background to Stonebreaker. His passion for food began right here in our state and flourished under some of the world’s most acclaimed chefs.

After gaining early experience in Little Rock restaurants, Chef Rogers honed his skills under culinary giants like:

  • Thomas Keller: The French Laundry (Yountville, CA) – Three Michelin Stars
  • Grant Achatz: Alinea (Chicago, IL) – Three Michelin Stars
  • Iliana Regan: Elizabeth (Chicago, IL) – One Michelin Star

Most recently, Chef Rogers served as Executive Chef at Hail Fellow Well Met! in Johnson, Arkansas.

“Tyler’s impressive resume and deep appreciation for Arkansas’ agricultural bounty perfectly align with our vision for Stonebreaker’s restaurant,” said Gary Sims, CEO of Hay Creek Hotels. This vision emphasizes celebrating Arkansas flavors through a seasonally-focused menu.

Stonebreaker is slated for a phased opening throughout 2024. The restaurant is set to debut in August, offering diners a unique culinary experience that highlights the best of Arkansas.

The entire Stonebreaker development encompasses more than just a restaurant. It will also feature:

  • A 78-room hotel
  • A members’ club
  • An event venue housed in the restored Pratt Place Barn

We’re excited to welcome Chef Rogers to the Stonebreaker family and look forward to sharing his culinary artistry with the Fayetteville community!
