Mercury Chop House restaurant will be back in downtown Fort Worth, opening in the former Vivo 53 space at the corner of Taylor and Fifth streets.
Owner Zack Moutaouakil found the spot a few blocks west of his former site at 301 Main, where Mercury Chop House had been for more than 15 years. The restaurant will be open Thanksgiving Day to feed the Fort Worth Police Officers Association, then will be closed to complete the remodeling.
“I’m thinking we’ll be open the second week of December,” Moutaouakil said. Mercury Chop House is an upscale, wood-paneled steakhouse that serves classic cuts of Allen Brothers beef and fresh seafood.
“I have 23 years downtown…our regulars, our name downtown give us a large base and they’re happy we’re coming back,” said Moutaouakil,
