It appears that Jack Allen’s Kitchen's Westlake location is gearing up to open very, very soon. There’s officially a sign up outside Chef Jack Gilmore’s newest venture at 3600-D Capital of Texas Hwy North. According to a Craigslist ad posted today, the restaurant is hiring for a whole bunch of positions—"ORIENTATION STARTS SUNDAY" the ad says, and the restaurant is "opening in about a week."
Construction on the third location of this farm-to-table comfort food Eater 38 restaurant began last fall, after taking over the former Trento space last spring. Jack Allen’s Kitchen 360 will form a "triangle" for the JAK brand between their existing Oak Hill and Round Rock locations, and will be the only location with a wood-burning oven. There also appears to be a sweet patio fireplace in the works, judging from a photo posted on their Instagram account.
