A rooftop terrace at Harvest Hall is expected to be completed by the end of October, bringing in more outdoor dining space to Grapevine, according to Mark Brooks, development partner at Brooks Hospitality Consulting.

The outdoor terrace will be located on the fourth floor and will allow Harvest Hall to offer more dining space while practicing safe COVID-19 guidelines.

“We're now looking more at these outdoor spaces and how to use them. And we had already planned to use [many outdoor spaces], but now it's super important,” he said in a Sept. 23 Grapevine Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Partnership meeting. “So we'll be adding some gazebos, outdoor seating. It will be available for private functions, but it will also have a public access bar on the weekends.”

During that same meeting, Brooks confirmed once again the six locally owned restaurants that will be added to the first floor of the building. They are Southern cuisine restaurant Chick & Biscuit; Latin cuisine Arepa, TX; slider restaurant Easy Slider; Vietnamese cuisine Four Sisters; Italian place Spuntino and Mediterranean restaurant Zatar.

“Frankly, we were looking for people that would work together. And we turned down several ... named chefs because the thought was we wanted to have a community, we wanted to have people that would work together,” Brooks said. “They all have a story, and they all have a family business. So it's interesting that we were able to get six that would do that and work together. And so, you know, hopefully, that makes for long term.”
