“We are trying to really elevate our brand and focus on some of the things that have helped us set ourselves apart with Fork & Fire in Granite Park, which is our bar,” he said. “Here in McKinney the bar is going to be centric to our dining room space, and we’re going to elevate it just a notch.”
The goal is to bring some of the flair of Dallas or other parts of the country for a nice date night into the neighborhood, Graman said.
Food at Fork & Fire will be protein-focused, with chefs preparing meals on a wood fire grill at 650 degrees to sear in the flavor, Graman said. The salmon is sourced from the Faroe Islands, and the steaks are kin to Kobe beef and raised in Texas. Drinks are made with the restaurant’s own simple syrups, “and very little of them,” Graman said.
“We take a very minimalist style approach to the food,” Graman said.
The restaurant will also offer an expansive patio that will overlook the green space provided at Hub 121. Construction will take place this spring and summer, with the restaurant slated to open by late summer, Graman said. www.forkandfire.com
