Fort Worth chef Tim Love is all in on Mule Alley: According to a release, he's opening two new restaurants at the buzzy redevelopment project at the Stockyards.
Love is already a big presence in the area with Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, Love Shack, Atico, and White Elephant Saloon. But four is not enough. You need six.
While the release provides no details other than news of the openings, one of the new concepts does have a working title: Paloma Suerte, aka Lucky Dove, and will be located at 122 E. Exchange St. That's a CultureMap #exclusive.
Love has other restaurants including Woodshed Smokehouse, Queenie's Steakhouse, and Gemelle, but shockingly, they are not located in the Stockyards.
These new eateries will add to a thriving restaurant and bar scene at Mule Alley. Anchored by Hotel Drover, it's also home to Provender Hall, Shake Shack, Biscuit Bar, and Cowtown Winery, and there's more on the way, including 97 West Kitchen & Bar at the Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel Drover, Second Rodeo Brewing Co., Sidesaddle Saloon, and Avoca Coffee.
Mule Alley is the result of six years of planning by Stockyards Heritage Development Co., who set out to revive the 108-year-old original horse and mule barns into a shopping and dining district.
