Hildebrand has garnered both local and national acclaim at Triniti. Forbes magazine said “Hildebrand’s offerings represent progressive American food at its finest, and Triniti is an excellent addition to, and competition for, Houston’s standard bearers.”

Chef Hildebrand recruited Pat to work at Triniti as a line cook in 2013, and he quickly moved up the ranks, working every station on the Triniti suite.  Sommers was promoted to Executive Sous Chef in 2015, the same year he became the face of Cattleman Steak Sauce for their ad campaign.
