New Sports Bar
The breastaurant world, consisting of restaurants featuring scantily clad servers, peaked a couple of years ago; but maybe Wild Pitch Sports Bar & Grill can turn that around.
The Frisco sports bar, located between Stonebriar Centre mall and Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, has cast its net to the west and will open a branch in southwest Fort Worth, at 4701 City Lake Blvd. E.
According to manager Joel Hill, the opening will happen in about three to four months. "We knew we wanted to open in Fort Worth," Hill says. "It was just a matter of finding the right location."
The right location turned out to be a former Rack Daddy's, a not dissimilar concept with fetching servers, which recently closed.
Wild Pitch opened in Frisco eight years ago, but under the name Third Base.
"It turns out another company had the same name, so we changed ours two years ago," Hill says. "Luckily, it didn't affect our business. We're up here next to the Rough Riders, so we're in a good spot."
It features many TVs, a decent menu, and embraces a baseball theme, with baseball caps frequently employed as part of the server uniform. As scanty outfits go, Wild Pitch is probably as minimal as it comes, with little more than panties. The restaurant was involved in a ballot initiative in May 2016 to make Frisco wet, but the vote was not passed.
The menu has some of the dishes one might expect — nachos, wings, and so on — but also a few one might not.
"Our signature dish is the most surprising thing, and that's sushi," Hill says. "We have a 20-year veteran sushi chef, and he's doing some great sushi here, which you would not expect at a sports bar. We also have rib-eye steak, pork chops, and even a category called 'healthy meals,' with some higher end things."
