Houston-based Salata, a salad bar restaurant, is set to open in Sundance Square at 500 Commerce St., just around the corner from The Cupcakery and across from Bass Performance Hall. The location will be Fort Worthâ€™s first and is expected to open by late August, pending construction.
Salataâ€™s menu is simple and allows patrons to create their own tossed-to-order salads and wraps. Selections include fresh veggies, fruits, nuts, cheeses and Salataâ€™s own line of dressings, which the restaurant also sells by the bottle. Varieties include ginger lime, chipotle ranch and mango. Protein options are limited to chicken, including pesto, Asian barbecue and spicy chipotle, or seafood, such as baked salmon or herb-marinated shrimp. Tortilla, mushroom and tomato basil soup come with bread and are served by the cup or bowl. EntrÃ©e prices range from $7 for wraps to $11 for a salad with seafood. Catering services will also be offered.
â€œSundance Square seemed like the perfect fit for our next Salata location,â€ said Berge Simonian, co-founder of Salata, in a release. â€œBeing right in the mix of downtown Fort Worth, with all of the history, retail shops and attractions, Salata will be the perfect complement for those that work downtown and visit the area.â€
Salata, named for the Latin origin of the word â€œsalad,â€ has 13 locations in Houston, Dallas and Los Angeles. The concept was created in 2005.
