Fish City Grill opened at the Lake Highlands Town Center Monday, complete with exposed brick walls, polished brass portholes and an open kitchen. The rolling bay door can be opened wide for fresh air on a nice day, and the big center bar has sports on TV. Don’t miss daily specials on the chalkboard and the octopus mural on the ceiling hand-drawn with Sharpie markers.
The restaurant was delayed getting its liquor license, but until they get the green light to sell drinks, they can give you two servings of their house Cabernet, house Chardonnay or Deep Ellum Brewing’s Dallas Blonde. Even better.
When I dropped by for lunch, their manager stopped me from taking pics inside and told me I’d have to go through the rigamarole of chasing down approval from their corporate office (first time that’s happened in ten years). Take my word for it – the place is lovely.
Fish City will host a grand opening Tuesday, Feb. 6th, with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. All day, 15% of sales will go to Feed Lake Highlands, and if you bring a handled grocery sack (empty bag – or several) for Feed LH to the ribbon cutting, you’ll receive a gift certificate for a free appetizer.
