Tim Love has a new offering coming this spring.
Gemelle will feature all-day dining and drinking from nestled in a reconstructed bungalow along Fort Worth’s Trinity Trails, the former site of Thurber Mingus at 4400 White Settlement Road.
Gemelle – Italian for ‘twin girls’ – is named for Love’s daughters, Ella and Anna. He announced the restaurant on March 12, their birthday.
The restaurant, Love’s first foray into Italian food, will serve as a casual gathering place showcasing Detroit-style pizza, fresh pastas and sandwiches, and an assortment of peak-season snacks—all available to-go as well. Dishes will be composed of hand-picked ingredients from the restaurant’s 10,000 square-foot garden, overseen by a dedicated horticulturalist on staff.
Beginning at 11 a.m., diners can enjoy a variety of offerings throughout the day, ranging from lighter fare such as grilled spring onions with lemon zest to an escarole and bok choy Caesar salad to heartier offerings like baked sun dried tomato lamb with tomato water orzo, BBQ brisket pizza and handmade pastas like Bavette cacio e pepe. With a sprawling backyard, guests can unwind over a game of lively bocce ball and sip frozen Aperol spritz & house-made amaro from the custom-made garden bar.
Love owns a variety of other restaurants including Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, White Elephant Saloon, Love Shack Burgers, Queenie’s, as well as another restaurant on the river, Woodshed Smokehouse.
