Crockett Row at West 7th Announces Call for Artists

for New Public Art Program Launch

Future outdoor gallery will celebrate creativity, community

 MARCH 29, 2018 – FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Crockett Row at West 7th has announced a call for artists for the launch of its new public art program this year. With the goal to establish a mixed-medium outdoor gallery designed to celebrate creativity and community in Fort Worth, Crockett Row will collaborate with emerging and established artists on a number of projects, beginning with a series of three murals to be completed this summer.

Crockett Row is looking for selected artists to create engaging, inspirational and colorful murals that capture the energy of its location in the thriving Cultural District. Two murals will be located at the Currie Street entrance of the north parking garage and the other one will welcome visitors outside of the forthcoming FOODHALL at Crockett Row. Artists can apply and learn more at bit.ly/crockettrowmuralproposals. Submissions are due May 18, and selected artists will be notified by May 31.

As a part of the Cultural District, Crockett Row has long supported the local arts scene by hosting annual events like the Chalk Art Festival and establishing partnerships with arts organizations including the Arts Council of Fort Worth. Since 2014, it has also been home to ART7, a satellite gallery of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, a division of the Arts Council of Fort Worth.

“The installation of new public art is the natural next step in Crockett Row’s progression as a Cultural District destination,” said Monica Bermea, the marketing director at Crockett Row. “We look forward to working together with many talented artists to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor gallery.”

Other upcoming projects include a kids’ art wall designed to inspire creativity amongst Fort Worth’s youngest minds; the city’s first “Before I Die” wall where locals and visitors alike can share their hopes for the future; neon lighting in the paseos to enhance wayfinding; a signature mural to inspire social media sharing; and yarn-bombing, a type of street art.

Food Hall at Crockett Row Announces New Culinary Vendors

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.

Tillman’s Roadhouse in Fort Worth Transitions to Market + Table

Health Conscious Concept Brings Together Grab-and-Go, Café-Style Dining, and Gourmet Concepts

Dallas – September 10, 2015 – Todd Fiscus, co-owner of the popular Tillman’s Roadhouse restaurants, has announced that Tillman’s Fort Worth location will be wrapping up its run later this month to make way for a new concept. Market + Table, slated to open in early October, will bring together three dining/food concepts.

Fiscus shares, “Tillman’s has been a journey of sorts of top restaurants, appearances on The Chew, and continued “best of items” in Fort Worth. All the while, the dining arena has changed around us. So, it’s time for us to change. We need some fresh and clean eating around us, and offering a fine grocer element for the residences around us. This is what I want in my neighborhood.”

With Chef Kalen Morgenstern – best known from the reality cooking show Hell’s Kitchen with Gordon Ramsay and Top Chef Fort Worth – at the helm, Market + Table will include three distinct concepts – Market, The Living Room @ Market, and Table.

Opening early (7 a.m.) everyday and operating all day, Market serves as a “go to” place for grab-and-go, or stay-and-enjoy foods, while also offering an edited grocery assortment. Imagine coffees, juices, prepared salads, entrees, sandwiches, cheeses and more. Must-have pantry provisions, such as sugar, olive oil, etc., will also be sold.

The Living Room @ Market will serve craft cocktails, 16 local brews on tap, house-made juices, and barista-style coffees, while also featuring a menu for lunch or dinner filled with refreshing good, and good-for-you meals. With a beautiful terrace space, and interior seating, the Living Room @ Market is ideal for a light meal, a glass of wine, or a cheese board, in a comfortable, relaxing space.

The third concept, Table, will feature a 44-seat restaurant, with a separate entry from the street. The creative and expressive kitchen will allow Chef Morgenstern to try new and unique options, based on seasonality and creative preference. Designed as an immersive dining experience, diners can expect a regularly changing menu and market-fresh ingredients, with a dash of whimsy and imagination. Refined service in a casually elegant setting will be a hallmark. Table will be open Wednesday – Saturdays for dinner only.

“I am excited about this for several reasons. I love the new fresh interior design of the space. And I love that this will be the perfect place for a great glass of wine or maybe a fantastic meal that leaves you fulfilled. There’s a sense of ease about it all. I can’t wait.” says Fiscus enthusiastically.

Tillman’s Roadhouse in Fort Worth opened as one of the original tenants of Fort Worth’s West 7th Development in 2010. The last day of service will be Saturday, August 22, to make way for the new restaurant and market. Operations at Tillman’s Roadhouse in Bishop Arts will remain unchanged.

For further information, please contact Suzanne Droese at Droese Public Relations.
