Meso Maya opened its second Fort Worth location in the historic Kress building downtown on Nov. 6. previously reported the news in November 2015, and the restaurant is finally ready for opening. The concept from Firebird Restaurant Group serves interior Mexican menu items for lunch and dinner including scratch moles and popular cocktails like the avocado margarita. Its Hulen Street location made Fort Worth Magazine's list of Best New Retaurants in the November issue.

Listed on the National Register of Historic places, the Kress building was built in 1936 for the department store chain of the same name. Meso Maya renovated the space in the building previously occupied by Fox & Hound pub. Located at 604 Main St., the new restaurant has one-of-a-kind features like a large private dining space and original elements from the historic Kress Building are integrated into the décor, including the original floors and Kress signage.

“Our first Fort Worth Meso Maya in Tanglewood has experienced great success, so we are looking forward to bringing the same elevated experience to downtown Fort Worth,” said Chef Nico  Sanchez.
