Tricky Fish, a costal and Cajun restaurant, is opening in Fort Worth’s Waterside on Aug. 13.

The 4,200 square-foot restaurant will seat 145 guests inside. The modern, industrial space will offer plenty of natural light and feature a bar area, polished concrete floors, wood accents and a hues of blue and orange. A patio area will seat up to 50 people.

“We are excited to be part of the vibrant Waterside community,” said Chris Degan, president of Tricky Fish. “We jumped at the opportunity to join this great mix of retail and restaurants tenants. It’s the perfect spot for our first location in Fort Worth.”

Tricky Fish opened its first location in Richardson last fall. The Fort Worth restaurant, the first in Tarrant County, will offer menu items such as Cajun gumbo, po’boys with fried or blackened catfish, and fresh seafood dishes like grilled salmon and lemon pepper shrimp tacos. Tricky Fish will have a weekday happy hour from 3 to 7 p.m., as well as daily drink specials Sundays through Thursdays. The drink menu will include seasonal cocktails, craft beers, wines by the bottle and glass, and sipping whiskies.

On the weekends, Tricky Fish will serve brunch with a mimosa bar from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dishes range from the NOLA Benedict with andouille sausage and a Creole mustard hollandaise to praline pancakes topped with a praline-whisky syrup.

James Petty, a 30-year veteran of the hospitality industry, will serve as the general manager of Tricky Fish. He spent 15 years in New York City honing his craft as a bartender at top spots owned by restaurateurs such as Wolfgang Puck before moving to Fort Worth to open two gourmet sandwich shops. He joined Tricky Fish’s parent company in 2012.

The Waterside location will be open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends.
