Cowtown was recently named one of the best US cities to start a business, and the influx of new restaurants doesn’t appear to be slowing down. Here are the eateries that have their sights set on Fort Worth.

Si Tapas | Crockett Row

The tapas restaurant opened 14 years ago in Dallas and plans to expand to Cowtown this fall. The menu will feature items like Cochinillo, a Spanish dish consisting of a roasted pig.

The Archibald | Downtown

The rooftop bar will take over the former Houston Street Bar & Patio, which closed at the end of May. Owner Keith Arias said renovations will take a few months and the space will reopen in late summer.

Plum Market | DFW Airport

The fast-casual eatery will open a new retailer this summer in Terminal A with chef-crafted meals, coffee, pastries, and grab-and-go snacks.

Just Love Coffee | Alliance

The full-service cafe is now open and offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner with menu items like waffles, sandwiches, wraps, and coffee.
