A new French brasserie concept from restaurateur Felipe Armenta is coming soon to Fort Worth. Cafe Margot, named after Armenta’s daughter, is tentatively set to open at 3150 S. Hulen St. in January of 2023. “Margot means pearl in French,” Armenta said.
Armenta, president of Far Out Hospitality, operates several other restaurant concepts including Press Cafe, Maria’s Mexican Kitchen, and Pacific Table. Cafe Margot is a new concept for Armenta. The restaurant will offer full-service lunch and dinner with a full bar.
“A lot of fresh seafood, fresh crab, oysters, clam, shellfish. We will specialize in classic dishes. We’ll have a quiche. We’ll have an omelet. We’ll have French onion soup,” Armenta explained. The Cafe Margot menu will also feature house-made pasta, slow-braised meats, fresh fish, and freshly baked pastries.
Cafe Margot will offer guests both indoor and outdoor dining. “We’ll have a chef’s counter where you will be able to sit down and see the kitchen cooking and the chef expediting the food out, see people shuck fresh oysters.” The expansive bar will specialize in an array of classic cocktails including martinis.
Armenta is excited about the new concept. “I think Fort Worth has embraced us as a brand. We have a lot of restaurants in the area. I think this will be another good concept for people to put in their monthly routine of restaurants.”
