The Statesman reports that the team behind shuttered Congress Avenue mainstay Hickory Street will be opening Fork & Vine, a New American restaurant with a serious wine focus. The group had previously intended to revive Hickory Street, but instead they will be opening a new concept. Per The Statesman:
Co-owner Brendan Puthoff says that instead of moving Hickory Street north, the group will open Fork & Vine at to 3010 W Anderson Ln. near Shoal Creek Boulevard. The New American restaurant helmed by chef Camden Stuerzenberger will focus on small plates and a robust wine list stewarded by a Level II sommelier. Dick Clark Architecture is designing the space.The space was formerly occupied by Casa Chapala, whose downtown location remains open. Stuerzenberger was also the head chef at Hickory Street; the group hopes to open Fork & Vine by June 1st.
