Italian-born celebrity chef Fabio Viviani will open his gourmet dessert shop JARS in Fort Worth this Friday, Jan. 19 at 11:30 a.m. at 3000 S. Hulen St., behind Le Margot.

The menu will feature bite-sized desserts like cheesecake, tiramisu, and salted caramel pecan pie — to name a few — layered in single-serve jars. There are even a couple of gluten-free creations and limited edition JARS that will change weekly.

Also on the menu are scratch-made flavored waters called refreshers and a variety of soft-serve sundae creations.

Viviani partnered with local franchisees Tejal and Jason Wible — the family behind Dogtopia — to bring the company from Chicago to the Lone Star State. The Cowtown shop is the first Texas location with many more planned for Dallas, Highland Park, Plano, and Frisco.

In 2008, Viviani appeared on the reality TV competition series “Top Chef,” and returned in 2010 to compete on “Top Chef: All Stars.” Since then, he’s authored several successful cookbooks.
