Former Pakpao Chef Bringing BITE to West 7th

Former Pakpao Thai chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin is indeed opening his own restaurant in downtown Fort Worth, but it won't be focused solely on Thai food as previously reported — rather, Thretipthuangsin is joining forces with his brother Chris to open BITE, "an urban culinary experience" (read: restaurant) in the trendy West 7th district offering a "modern American" menu with global influences.

As far as the food goes, it's a far cry from what many folks were probably expecting from the Thailand native who made a name for himself at Pakpao; rather, diners can expect dishes like jalapeno-gouda croquettes, Muscovy duck with black cherry demiglace, herb-crusted rack of lamb, scallops and grits, balsamic-glazed short ribs, and wild mushroom and artichoke flatbread with truffle oil (now there's something you don't see much in Thai food).

Chef Eddy's brother Chris will head up the bar side of BITE, promising "an impressive signature cocktail list" and "an affordable wine list" as well as craft beer. Look for BITE — all 5,500 square feet of it — to launch sometime in early spring on the same stretch of West 7th occupied by Gloria's and Sushi Axiom.
