This loosely affiliated restaurant group helmed by brothers Eric Hilton (also a member of Thievery Corporation) and Ian Hilton had already cemented their entrepreneurial legacy, creating popular social establishments that paid homage to the likes of Marvin Gaye and local Civil Rights-era restaurateur, Billy Simpson, in neighborhoods that had yet to become "cool." When I started working with them, the media was elated to find out that there would be one central contact for the group. As a result, their relationship with media improved greatly and the group saw an 80% increase in press coverage including a regional magazine cover and placements in publications like Yahoo News, Delta Sky Magazine, Refinery29 and more.
Complex Magazine on Eric Hilton:
"In D.C., he’s known for helping build a hospitality industry dynasty consisting of several successful bars and restaurants in the area with business partners including younger brother Ian Hilton. Internationally, he’s known as one half of Thievery Corporation, the electronica-rooted DJ duo who earned a Grammy nod in 2008 for their album Radio Retaliation."
