In 2017, news broke that Fort Worth’s South Main Village would get a new Mexican spot from Sarah Castillo of Taco Heads. The plan was to move into at 125 South Main and open up Tinie’s in January 2018 with a restaurant on the first floor and a cocktail lounge called El Escondite on the second floor.
Now, the Dallas Morning News reports that it’s finally time to open up Tinie’s, after years of construction delays on the 81-year-old space in a neighborhood that’s changed a lot in the interim.
“Grand Opening Day,” the restaurant wrote on Facebook with an event listing for Tuesday, March 10. “Reservations strongly encouraged. Escondite opened seating.”
The minds behind Tinie’s — Castillo, mixologist Glen Keely, and chef Christian Lehrmann — turned to Mexico City for inspiration for Tinie’s, which will serve dishes to share like rotisserie chicken and roasted pork, along with small plates like tostadas, tacos, and empanadas.
This isn’t the group’s only upcoming project in Fort Worth: the Dallas Morning News reports that the trio want to open a “Texas tapas” bar named Sidesaddle Saloon in the Fort Worth Stockyards’ Mule Alley development.
