A former sous chef from Tim Byres' Smoke will head up the kitchen at a new tapas restaurant opening this fall in Fort Worth's Cultural District.
Sera Dining & Wine promises "a neighborhood tapas and wine concept, featuring a Coastal French-Spanish influence." Executive chef Brandon Hudson and general manager John Marsh used to work together in the space when it was Sapristi, another tapas-and-wine concept that closed sometime earlier this summer.
A press release touts "shareable small, medium and large plates, with dishes ranging from $6 to $32," including crispy sardines with Meyer lemon aioli, hen-of-the-woods mushrooms with quail egg and morcilla sausage, and suckling pig with quinoa, plus "lots of seafood" as well as vegetarian options; the menu will rotate seasonally and source local ingredients when possible.
The space, which sported lots of dark wood and a rustic vibe during its run as Sapristi, is currently under renovation with a goal of achieving a new "light, modern, Mediterranean feel." Look for Sera to open early this fall.
