Goodnight Hospitality has a big year ahead with the impending openings of three concepts, and it just added a big name to bolster its operations.

June Rodil, one of 26 women in the Americas to earn the master sommelier credential, is moving from Austin to Houston as a partner at Goodnight Hospitality. She'll join master sommelier David Keck, Peter McCarthy, and Felipe Riccio as they embark on an ambitious year in which they'll open Montrose Cheese and Wine, neighborhood Euro spot Rosie Cannonball, and 28-seat fine-dining restaurant March.

“We’re thrilled to welcome June Rodil as a partner in Goodnight Hospitality,” said partner Pete McCarthy. “As a talent-driven company, you jump on the opportunity if given the chance to work with someone like June. Quite frankly, June is both a badass and a delight, and David, Felipe and I cannot wait to watch as she shares her considerable talents on the Houston food scene.”

Rodil recently was vice president of operations for McGuire Moorman Hospitality, which ran 10 restaurants in Austin and one in Aspen, Colorado. She will remain partner in her neighborhood wine bar and restaurant June's All Day, which is also in Austin. Her accolades are many, including Wine Enthusiast's Sommelier of the Year 2018.

As a partner at Goodnight Hospitality (which also runs Goodnight Charlie's), Rodil will help run operations across all concepts while being involved in the company's wine programs. Keck has a similar role.

According to the Goodnight Hospitality website, March, Montrose Cheese and Wine and Rosie Cannonball will open in 2019, with a focused date to be announced.
