Earlier this year, Ms. Pulliam and her team were recognized for their involvement with the Boys and Girls Club, local schools and the cooking classes they put on for students. Additionally, the team takes pride in getting to know their guests and learning of the community efforts they are passionate about, so that the restaurant can also get involved.

 

Ms. Pulliam’s restaurant supports Women at the Well Ministries as part of LongHorn Steakhouse Harvest.
