As part of the new plaza space, the Westbrook building will sit on the west side of the plaza with Taco Diner opening onto the plaza in the south end of the building.
“Sundance Square has become synonymous with great restaurants,” said Johnny Campbell, CEO and President of Sundance Square. “Before we bring a new concept to the downtown dining, shopping and entertainment district, we do our due diligence to ensure we have the right mix of restaurants that ultimately our visitors will enjoy. Taco Diner is a proven concept with a fantastic management team so we are pleased to have a signed lease so we can get ready to open in 2013.”
Owned and operated by M Crowd Restaurant Group, Taco Diner is the second Mexican food concept for the company. Taco Diner offers a lighter approach to Mexican cooking with a focus on bold flavors found in traditional Mexico City taquerias. Sister restaurant Mi Cocina has a Sundance Square restaurant at 501 Main Street.
“Fort Worth has become a great restaurant town and we are excited to introduce a new concept to this vibrant dining scene,” stated Ray Washburn, owner of M Crowd Restaurant Group.
The plaza, scheduled for completion in October 2013, will be flanked by two new buildings currently under construction, The Westbrook on the west and The Commerce to the east. Along 3rd Street, the north side of the plaza will be framed by the historic Jett Building and a new multi-purpose pavilion. On the south side of the plaza, a double allée of trees will define the nearly one-acre site. The plaza has been part of Sundance Square’s master plan for several decades.
