Chef Marcus Paslay’s new restaurant, Piattello Italian Kitchen, will celebrate its grand opening January 14 in Fort Worth’s new Waterside development.
Part of the restaurant, Piattello Coffee Bar, will be open every morning starting January 2, serving handcrafted coffee beverages from AVOCA Coffee Roasters, as well as a selection of house made, grab-and-go breakfast items, such as muffins, pastries and yogurt parfaits.
The creative Italian menu will feature from-scratch, seasonal dishes, including selections of antipasti, soups & salads, house made pastas and pizzas, along with fresh sides and desserts. Daily specials will be available on a rotating schedule. Appetizers will range in price from $6-$10, and entrees will range from $15-$28. A full bar menu will feature craft beer, a curated selection of wines and local spirits.
Scott Lewis has been named executive chef of Piattello. Lewis, who studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Dallas, has worked in the culinary industry for nearly 16 years. He got his start working for Julian Barsotti – ascending from line cook at Nonna to sous chef at Carbone and eventually the opening head chef of Sprezza earlier this year.
The 5,300 square-foot restaurant, designed by Mitchell Garman Architects, will have an 800 square-foot patio and seat approximately 175 inside and 30 outside.
