HG Sply Co. Opens Its Doors

The much-anticipated Fort Worth offshoot of Dallas’ HG Sply Co. officially opened on Monday, Aug. 22. Located on the Trinity River in the new mixed-use WestBend development, HG uses all-natural, responsibly sourced ingredients. This is the second location for HG Sply Co. The first opened at Lower Greenville in Dallas and immediately became popular thanks to a menu of savory plates, bowls and classic cocktails in a casual setting. It’s also widely popular for its rooftop bar in Dallas – sadly a part of the equation that won't make its way to Fort Worth. But, the 7,000-square-foot patio will open “in a few weeks” and promises to embrace the Trinity River location overlooking the river and trails. Until then, the 4,400-square-foot interior with floor-to-ceiling windows, and a picturesque deck with cocktail service, will have to do.

The diet-friendly restaurant serves lunch, dinner and brunch. Eric O’Connor, formerly of Winslow’s Wine Café, is the chef de cuisine at the newest location. The wide-ranging menu includes items like vegan queso (made with coconut milk and cashew butter) and a cheddar bacon burger alongside healthy house bowls filled with your choice of the “hunted,” (steak, beef, salmon, pork) and “gathered,” (yellow curry, stir fry, zucchini pasta). The Gulf Shrimp Boil, shell-on shrimp with andouille sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob; and the HG Chicken Fried Steak, skirt steak over mashed potatoes, are exclusive to the Fort Worth menu.

“Our mission has always been a simple one: serve fresh, flavorful dishes prepared and sourced the right way to fuel your day. We want people to enjoy time with their friends in a relaxed environment with thoughtfully prepared drinks and little to no regret the next day,” says founder Elias Pope.

1621 River Run Drive. Hours of operation: Lunch & Dinner. Brunch menu offered on weekends. (Kitchen Hours) Sunday – Thursday 11am – 10pm, Friday & Saturday 11am – midnight (Kitchen closes 11pm).
