Fixe Co-Owners Keith House and James Robert said Monday they plan a second location of their Austin-based “progressive” southern restaurant in Fort Worth in the fall at The Shops at Clearfork.
The new 6100-square foot, 200-seat restaurant is being designed by Nelsen Partners Inc. of Austin, the firm that designed the Fixe location in the capitol city.
“We have been incredibly humbled by the response to our concept in Austin. As we thought about what’s next for our team, it was clear that expanding to Fort Worth was the right move,” said President and Owner House. “We have always felt right at home in the sophisticated yet relaxed feel of Fort Worth, and couldn’t be more thrilled about being a part of its very exciting culinary community.”
Fixe features updates of southern-style cuisine such as biscuits, fried chicken, catfish and grits, all updated with a modern touch.
As Executive Chef Robert focuses on building a culinary team for the Fort Worth location, Adam Puskorius will take the helm in Austin serving as executive chef for the flagship location. With nearly two decades of hospitality experience, Puskorius has worked for and with some of Texas’ most recognized restaurants. Beginning his career with Lisa and Emmitt Fox at Asti trattoria in Austin, Puskorius also worked alongside Chef Mark Cox at Mark’s American Cuisine in Houston. During his tenure with Eddie V’s restaurant group, Puskorius not only had a chance to work with House and Robert,, who before opening Fixe served as director of operations and corporate exec chef for the Eddie V’s group.
