Restaurateur Felipe Armenta, operator of three local restaurants, including The Tavern, will be opening a new bar and grill early next year at Alliance Town Center in the far north of Fort Worth.
Towne Grill will be similar to the Tavern, his original Fort Worth restaurant, Armenta said. It will open at 9365 Rain Lily Trail, a former Kansas-based Houlihan’s chain location.
The tavern serves a full menu of steaks, burgers, salads and brunch.
Armenta also operates Pacific Table, a Pacific Northwest-style bar and grill, and Press Cafe, a sidewalk cafe serving sandwiches, burgers, and salads. His new Tex-Mex restaurant, Maria’s Mexican Kitchen, is under construction at 1712 S. University Drive.
He is also a partner of Cork & Pig Tavern branches in Texas, including Las Colinas. His family operates Armenta’s in San Angelo, and he has worked for 10 years with Houston’s and Hillstone’s restaurants.
Towne Grill will be next to Mi Cocina, a flagship restaurant of Alliance Town Center.
