Now Open: Sera Brings Tapas Back to Fort Worth

Fort Worth's new Spanish tapas spot Sera Dining & Wine opened its doors last Thursday, a day ahead of schedule — a rare feat for restaurants these days, as so many seem to suffer from last-minute delays and constant opening date push-backs.

As DFW.com's Bud Kennedy points out, "Chef Tim Love gave up on a tapas restaurant in west Fort Worth, Duce," some five years ago. Executive chef Brandon Hudson, formerly sous chef at Tim Byres' Smoke, explains that the current dining climate in Fort Worth "makes a Spanish restaurant a better fit now," saying that he feels Fort Worth diners have a desire for something new. "We have plenty of barbecue and comfort food, but we don't have enough [restaurants] in the tier of an Ellerbe, Grace, Lanny's," he tells Kennedy.

The opening press release for Sera mentions all the so-hot-right-now buzzwords like "local," "seasonal," and of course, being tapas, "shareable plates." (On a side note: Until the restaurant secures the necessary TABC permits, it's BYOB with no corkage fee.) Sera is open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., as well as "Sunday Suppers" once a month.
