Avanti Immigrates West

Dallas-based Avanti Italian opened a Fort Worth location in the One City Place development (formerly Tandy Center) at the end of March. The Italian-Mediterranean spot has been an Uptown Dallas mainstay for more than 30 years.

Cream-colored tufted-leather benches, multiple romantic chandeliers, large windows, wood accents and brass fixtures welcome downtown professionals to step inside. 

The menu mirrors that of the original Dallas location with indulgences like a 6-pound lobster tail over linguini with shrimp, 14-pound grilled rib eye and Italian ceviche for dinner and large salads and salmon dishes for lunch. Avanti Fort Worth adds exclusive items as well like two flatbreads, a hummus trio and veal meatballs.
Catering to the professional crowd, Avanti’s happy hour, offering $2 off wine by the glass and draft beer, is every weekday from 5 – 7 p.m. Avanti also has wine on tap, a growing trend that some say is more economical, more sustainable and produces a better quality with every pour.  

Currently serving lunch and dinner, brunch service will start soon on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., when the patio seating along West Second Street will be a popular attraction.

Other recently announced tenants for One City Place include Dallas-based Wild Salsa, followed by Chop House Burger, as reported in the Spring 2016 issue of FW Inc.

Just one block from Sundance Square, Avanti is also accessible by The Worthington Renaissance Hotel via a skybridge. – by Kendall Louis
