In January, DFW.com told you about Bite -- officially Bite City Grill -- chef Eddy Thretipthuangisins new restaurant coming to Montgomery Plaza in Fort Worths West 7th district. Thretipthuangisin, best known for his time at Dallas Thai restaurant Pakpao, said that Bite wont be a Thai restaurant but modern American with a global influence.
On Thursday morning, Bite announced an opening date of March 20, and it will begin taking dinner reservations on Monday.
The restaurant also released its opening dinner menu, which will change seasonally (lunch service is expected to start in early April). The menu includes Small Bites such as roasted eggplant dip, charred octopus and wood-fired lamb pop, ranging from $7 to $14; four salads, including Mama Lou Salad with crispy wontons and chili sesame dressing; four flatbreads, including a braised short rib flatbread and a tuna tataki one; and Big Bite entrees ranging from $16 (woodfired grilled chicken) to $24 (scallop risotto).
The cocktail menu, designed by Thretipthuangsins brother Chris, wasnt available yet -- but drinks will be inspired by the signs of the Zodiac. The restaurant will also offer an extensive wine menu.
Bite will be in the corner that was once home to Deluxe Bar & Grille and Montys Corner, neither of which lasted very long. In January, Thretipthuangsin told DFW.coms Heather Svokos that hes aware of the locations troubled history. But hes not one for looking at what happened to others in the past.
Im always looking forward, he said. I can only do and control what I do.
