Elro Pizza + Crudo

Terrence Gallivan discovered his passion for cooking working at a bistro in his hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia, and went on to man the stoves at New York City’s Charlie Palmer’s Aureole, The Modern, Gordon Ramsey at the London Hotel, and Fiamma. In 2008, he took over as chef at hot NYC restaurant August, before (ironically) spending the month of August in Houston, helping create the Just 8 Project—a one-month pop-up restaurant with Chef Seth Siegel-Gardner and Chef Justin Yu. Coming back to Houston for good, he and Siegel-Gardner opened The Pass and Provisions, a dual-concept restaurant, in 2012. Gallivan is a two-time nominee for the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Southwest, and The Pass and Provisions was named the sixth best new restaurant in America in 2013 by Bon Appetit. Gallivan opened his first solo concept Elro Pizza // Crudo in 2023 in Houston.
