A new steakhouse comes to the mid-cities this spring with the opening of a Saltgrass Steak House, at 1831 Hwy. 121 in Bedford. The restaurant will take over a space that was previously occupied by another steakhouse, Texas Land and Cattle, which closed in January 2017.
According to a spokesperson, the Bedford restaurant will open in the spring.
Saltgrass is known for its Angus beef steaks, BBQ baby back ribs, and seafood. Surf and turf dishes include a sirloin steak accompanied by fried shrimp.
Steaks are seasoned with garlic butter and Saltgrass-7 steak spice. All breads, dressings, soups, and desserts are house-made.
They also do a number of enticing starters such as crab cakes, cheese fries, artichoke-spinach dip, and queso fresco studded with brisket. Is it just because it's late in the day that all of that sounds so good?
There are currently 14 Saltgrass locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, stretching from Rockwall in the east to Fort Worth in the west.
The closest locations would be southeast of Bedford on Lamar Street in Arlington, and northeast of Bedford off SH-114 in Grapevine. There's also one due west in north Fort Worth, off 35W above 820.
But there is an entire swath of land in the mid-cities with no Saltgrass at all.
Saltgrass is part of the Houston-based Landry's family, which owns a number of steaky concepts including Vic & Anthony's, Brenner's Steakhouse, and Morton's the Steakhouse. Owner Tilman Fertitta just opened yet another in Houston, called Mastro's.
