The restaurant’s name alludes to the year that the Republic of Texas was annexed as the 28th state to the Union, Marty Bryan, one of the owners of 1845 Taste Texas, said in the news release.
“We want our restaurant to embody the flavor of our great state of Texas,” Bryan said. “Our menu will include dishes such as West Texas quail lollipops, a shaved short rib sandwich, coffee braised brisket tacos and jalapeño bacon mac and cheese. We will offer a variety of alcohol from Texas distilleries and the beef will be sourced from 44 Farms in Cameron, Texas.”
The restaurant will take over the space at 2401 Lakeside Parkway, Flower Mound, which was previously occupied by Carvao Prime Brazilian Steakhouse.
Carvao announced its decision to close in a Jan. 2 post on social media. Additional signage was spotted on the door.
Carvao has been part of the community since 2015, according to its website, which remains active. The Brazilian steakhouse served various cuts of meat to customers tableside while providing a spread of side dishes at its gourmet salad bar.
“We are proud that we were a part of the initial phase of the Lakeside development and are excited to see what great things 1845 will bring to the project,” Carvao owner Paulo Novaes said in the news release.
