Aimed at workers on the go, a new restaurant will be opening in Sundance Square from the Reata Restaurant Group.
The owner of Reata Restaurant will be opening a new restaurant called 203 Café this fall that will be located at 203 Commerce Street in Sundance Square on the second floor of the Fire Station No. 1 building.
“Sometimes office workers need another option for lunch on the go. 203 Café will provide a different menu than Reata through satisfying items that are easy to take back to a desk or a conference room,” the owner and president of Reata Restaurant Group, Mike Micallef, said in a news release
Nestled between the Wells Fargo and Bank of America towers, the restaurant will offer catering to downtown businesses and fast casual breakfast and lunch during the weekdays.
With that idea in mind, the news release says that the café will focus on signature sandwiches including:
– The Turkey – A thin sliced citrus and herb-roasted turkey breast sandwich on a butter croissant roll. It’s topped with arugula, sliced red onions and whole grain mustard.
– The Buffalo Shrimp – A sandwich of fried bay shrimp coated in spicy house made buffalo sauce with toasted ciabatta. Toppings for the sandwich include red cabbage, cilantro, cotija cheese, sliced tomatoes, garlic aioli and shredded iceberg lettuce.
– The Rueben – A house made pastrami and applewood-smoked bacon sandwich with toasted pumpernickel rye bread. House made fennel sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and whole grain mustard are also included.
– The Bratwurst – Served on a toasted pretzel roll, this is a traditional German sausage sandwich that is made of pork and spices steamed in lager. House made sauerkraut and whole grain mustard will also be included.
The news release says that the restaurant will be 2,200 square-feet and should hire 10 employees. The expected hours for the establishment are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We are very pleased to have the Reata owners take on this new endeavor. 203 Café will fill a niche in Sundance Square with a high-quality, first-class offering,” said the president and CEO of Sundance Square, Johnny Campbell, in a news release.
203 Café is currently under construction and is set to open in the fall of 2017. Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford is the architect and the general contractor is Dennett Construction. Design assistance is being given by The Projects Group.
The café can be found on Facebook (@203CafeFw) and Twitter and Instagram accounts are coming soon.
