Trademark Property Co.’s WestBend development is adding another restaurant to its mix: Bartaco.

The concept, operated by Barteca Restaurant Group, will make its Texas debut at WestBend, offering inventive tacos, cocktails, and more in a 4,853-square-foot space overlooking the Trinity River.

The restaurant will combine upscale street food with a coastal vibe in a relaxed environment, according to the news release. The minimalistic décor will have a rustic beach shack feel. The cuisine is rooted in tradition and pulls from a broad palate of spicy, bold flavors from the Mediterranean, Asia and beyond, according to the release.

“Having lived in the Fort Worth area for the past four years, I’m particularly excited to bring Bartaco to the community,” said Jeff Carcara, CEO, Barteca Restaurant Group. “We’ve spent a lot of time in the neighborhood. While there are a lot of great taco places around, we believe we bring something a little different to the table.”

Bartaco’s concept has been successful at its other locations, says Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “Engaging with the active social scene on the Trinity Trails through trailside restaurants is a key piece of our vision for WestBend. Bartaco’s prime location on the Trinity River alongside HG Sply Co. will help foster a vibrant, trailside scene.”

WestBend is undergoing a property redevelopment focused on evolving the University retail district by delivering the critical mass of retail and restaurants, urban-style pedestrian experience, and Trinity River/Trinity Trails connectivity that the area currently lacks, according to a Trademark news release.

Trademark recently completed phase I of the redevelopment, which added new retail, restaurants, office space, and a locally focused public art program, featuring a rotating exhibit celebrating the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s photography collection, as well as murals by Fort Worth artist Devon Nowlin. Other phase I enhancements include added bike racks and outdoor seating along the Trinity River and Trinity Trails, upgraded landscaping, expanded parking options, and improved wayfinding.

Phase II will include a property expansion onto the adjacent 3.5-acre tract immediately south of WestBend, which Trademark acquired in 2016. Conceptual planning is underway to develop additional mixed-use space featuring added ground floor retail, a signature hotel, and multi-family units.

At full build-out, WestBend will include 670,000 square feet of retail, restaurant, office, multi-family, and hospitality space.
