Four new local culinary vendors will join the FOODHALL at Crockett Row when it opens later this year. Chef Grady Spears and the teams behind Tokyo Café, Press Waffle Co. and Not Just Q are the latest operators to join previously announced vendors Knife Burger by John Tesar and The Dapper Doughnut.
Fort Worth’s cowboy chef, Grady Spears, will debut a new concept called Graze, focused on sweet and savory chicken & biscuits and other comfort foods. Biscuits with butter and jam have remained a popular appetizer on the menu at Horseshoe Hill, his restaurant in the Stockyards, which was named one of the best new restaurants in 2016 by Texas Monthly.
Inspired by their west side restaurant Tokyo Café, owners Jarry & Mary Ho and chef Kevin Martinez will open a fresh sushi concept at the food hall. Sushi offerings will include some of the most popular rolls from the restaurant, as well as a selection of new menu items exclusive to the food hall. Catering to nearby office workers and residents, the concept will offer both counter-service and a number of grab-and-go options.
Press Waffle Co., owned by brothers Bryan and Caleb Lewis, will feature housemade authentic Belgian waffles and locally roasted coffee. The dough-based, Liege-style waffles made with Belgian pearl sugar come in sweet and savory varieties, such as The House (Nutella, cookie butter and fresh cut strawberries with housemade whipped cream) and The Soulman (fried chicken tenders, bacon crumbles and pure maple syrup). A build-your-own option will allow customers to choose from a number of toppings, including peanut butter, sprinkles, fruit, nuts and more. Press Waffle Co. also has a location at the Legacy Food Hall in Plano.
Former Texas Christian University football star David Hawthorne will open Not Just Q, a from-scratch barbecue-and-more spot. The popular food truck has amassed a following in Dallas for chef Eric Hansen’s unique menu of barbecue, inventive sides and other dishes, such as brisket nachos and tacos served with a Mexican slaw. The menu at the food hall will include Fort Worth-only exclusives and a monthly rotating feature chosen by customers.
Additionally, FOODHALL at Crockett Row will feature art and music programming. Local artists and TCU student artists will provide visual works for display in the covered paseo leading to the entrance. There will also be a regular schedule of live music from local and regionally-known performers to encourage diners to enjoy a leisurely experience.
The 16,000 square-foot food hall will also feature a full bar with seating for 115 in a centrally-located area. There will be seating for approximately 70 outside on the patios and in the covered paseo between buildings. FOODHALL at Crockett Row will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
More vendors and an opening date for the food hall will be announced in the coming months.
