Social House coming to Fort Worth

Posted 1:04pm on Thursday, Jun. 12, 2014

Fort Worth’s burgeoning West 7th district continues to burgeon. The Social House, which has locations in Addison and Dallas, announced Thursday that it plans to open a West 7th location by late September or early October (caveat: restaurants seldom hit their target opening dates).

We’re trying to get a specific location, but considering the size of Social House’s menu and its 100 on-tap beers, we’re betting it will be in the old Brownstone space that has been vacant since Brownstone unceremoniously closed in November.

Although its first couple of restaurants opened east of Texas 360, Social House’s menu has a Tarrant County pedigree. Brian Olenjack, the chef behind Arlington’s Olenjack’s Grille (and also a Reata alum), designed the Social House menu.

Signature dishes include Prime Beef Ribeye, Braised Short Rib Pasta and House Three Meat Meatloaf composed of ground beef, pork and buffalo meatloaf served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, mustard greens and stewed tomato sauce.

We’re also intrigued by the veggie hummus pizza (part of a menu of a half-dozen pizzas), the “Sink” Burger (with pulled pork in addition to beef) and the small portion of the menu devoted to tacos.

On the Addison menu, entree prices range from $12.95 for apple cider chicken breast to $27.95 for the ribeye. Sandwiches and tacos are in the $10-$15 range. Brunch is available at the Dallas restaurants ($3 Bloody Marys and $4 frozen margaritas? Not bad.) We do note that there are few vegetarian and even fewer vegan options (maybe you can get that hummus pizza without the feta cheese).
