More than a year in the making, Fixe Southern House has finally opened its doors in Fort Worth.

The restaurant is now serving its menu of biscuits and other Southern favorites at 5282 Marathon Avenue inside The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth. An expansion of the Austin original, a representative for Fixe tells Eater that the Fort Worth location is a “brighter, more polished version” of the restaurant’s first outpost, occupying 6900 square feet and seating 220 diners. Designed by Nelson Partners’ Amy Jackson, Fixe will offer a homey, comfortable vibe with modern touches and a giant pecan slab chef’s table that will offer a view of the action in the kitchen.

As far as the food is concerned, look for tons of comforting, updated Southern fare like fried chicken, a pot pie stuffed with Maine lobster and Louisiana crawfish, and a Duroc pork shoulder served with potlikker pinto beans, mustard greens, and an emulsion of jalapeno and kale. An entire section of the menu will be dedicated to grits, and of course, the beloved biscuits that chef-owner James Robert learned from his grandmother will be on offer, served with preserves made at the restaurant and whipped butter.

Fixe will open for its first service on Wednesday, January 24. The restaurant will be open for dinner from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
