About Tim Love

Tim Love is a culinary pioneer and vibrant personality, renowned for his signature urban Western cuisine. With over 25 years of experience, Love has blazed a trail from a single restaurant to a nationwide culinary empire, earning celebrity chef status along the way. His remarkable journey includes elevating dining experiences at music festivals worldwide for more than a decade.

As the chef and owner of Love Management, Inc., Love leads a multi-faceted experience company that encompasses an array of culinary concepts. His portfolio includes the iconic Lonesome Dove Western Bistro with locations in Fort Worth, Austin, and Knoxville, as well as Woodshed Smokehouse in Fort Worth and select Live Nation Venues in Dallas, TX, Irvine, CA, Mountain View, CA, Tampa, FL, Wantagh, NY, Holmdel, NJ, and George, WA. Love also oversees Love Shack in Fort Worth and DFW Airport, Queenie's Steakhouse in Denton, White Elephant Saloon, Gemelle, Ático, Paloma Suerte, Hotel Otto, and the recently opened Tannahill's Tavern & Music Hall and Caterina's, all situated in Fort Worth.

Love's influence transcends the restaurant industry, with a growing entrepreneurial footprint in the event and entertainment spheres. He has forged strategic partnerships with Live Nation, collaborating on various ventures and aligning with renowned music festivals like Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. Love holds the esteemed title of official chef for Austin City Limits and is a co-founder of Austin Food & Wine. In Fall 2022, in partnership with Live Nation, Love opened Tannahill’s Tavern & Music Hall, a 1,000-person venue with three, 20-person VIP suites plus a dedicated bar and full-service restaurant, in the Fort Worth Stockyards. In March 2023, Love again partnered with Live Nation plus Larry Joe Taylor to produce the Fort Worth Music Festival & Conference at the Stockyards, a new music networking conference and festival aiming to highlight the Texas music scene while working to build an infrastructure where artists can establish and grow their career in Texas and beyond.

The Love Collection, a premium limited edition apparel and accessory brand, is Love's latest venture. Embodying laid-back luxury rooted in the spirit of the West, Love Collection combines the quality and heritage of Texas with modern details and the distinctive style of its creator.
