A Historic Meso

The historic Kress building downtown will become home to a Meso Maya restaurant in the first half of 2016. The first Fort Worth location of the concept from Firebird Restaurant Group will serve interior Mexican menu items for lunch and dinner including scratch moles and popular cocktails like the avocado margarita. Listed on the National Register of Historic places, the Kress building was built in 1936 for the department store chain of the same name. The building will undergo renovations before the restaurant opens. Meso Maya will be in the space previously occupied by Fox & Hound pub.

Firebird Restaurant group also announced that they will launch new concept Tortaco in the West 7th district. The casual restaurant will serve signature cocktails from a full bar plus a menu developed by Chef Nico Sanchez. Tortaco will be located at 2829 Morton St.
