A global award-winning restaurant is coming to Fort Worth's WestBend in early 2022: It's the first U.S. location of Quince, a restaurant founded in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, which has been proclaimed the "No. 1 Rooftop Restaurant in the World."

Created by former Fort Worth hedge fund manager Brian Sneed, Quince is an open-air concept known for fun food concepts and great city views.

According to a release, the WestBend location will be situated along the Trinity River, overlooking the Fort Worth Zoo and nearby wooded areas.

The first location opened in 2016 in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and was crowned by Robb Report Magazine as not only the "No. 1 Rooftop Restaurant in the World" for the past two years but also the "No. 1 Rooftop Destination in the World." Robb Report really likes that rooftop.

According to a release from Trademark Property Company, the mixed-use investor, developer, and operator of WestBend, the restaurant will bring a chic but casual atmosphere, flavors, and flair to WestBend's riverfront mixed-use landscape, joining neighbors such as Johnnie-O, Market by Macy’s, Warby Parker, Drybar, Hg Sply Co., and Tyler's. 

"We are thrilled with our leasing momentum at WestBend," said Trademark CEO Terry Montesi. "With our best in Fort Worth location and the most relevant merchandising, WestBend has become Fort Worth’s go-to project for the latest and greatest retailers and restaurants, such as Quince, with more coming soon."

Quince was created for all ages in search of an upbeat experience with their meal. The menu at the original location is sophisticated, with lots of seafood including sushi and ceviches, but also steaks, salads, and bowls.

There's steak au jus, tuna, tempura shrimp, chicken with ginger rice, filet with chateau potatoes, short ribs with truffle sauce on hummus with crunchy chickpeas, pasta fusilli with lamb ragout, New York strip, and a cowboy ribeye.

They also serve brunch with dishes such as huevos rancheros, eggs benedict, French toast with berries and cream, chilaquiles verdes, and eggs shakshouka.

In a statement, Sneed says that Fort Worth has evolved in so many ways in the past few years and is now ready for this type of dining experience.

"This has been a long time coming, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to bring my concept home and to one of the best views on the Trinity River," he says. "It's a must that Quince has exceptional views and quality neighboring businesses, and WestBend perfectly fits this requirement. Our global collective menu was formulated to include dishes people will crave and come back for tomorrow, and we’re excited for Fort Worth to experience this."
