Fort Worth will soon become home to The Art of Grazing. The charcuterie business has been primarily offering its savory and sweet boards through delivery, but mini boards have also been sold at a couple of local retail stores. “We’ve been able to build a really good client base through that, as well,” said Amanda Pastusek, owner of The Art of Grazing.

Pastusek felt it was the next, natural step to open a storefront. “It would open a door for us to be able to do classes on-site and have our own kitchen instead of having to rent a kitchen,” Pastusek told What Now Dallas.

The Art of Grazing was initially supposed to open in July, but delays have pushed back the opening date. It will be located at 2740 Lipscomb St. in Fort Worth and could open in early September, possibly sometime after Labor Day.

The storefront will offer a few new menu items including salads, wraps, and grab-and-go sandwiches. Mini charcuterie boards in a box will also be offered for pickup or indoor dining. “We’ll still continue to do boards to order and deliveries.” The restaurant features meat and cheese boards, fruit and cheese boards, and dessert boards.

The Art of Grazing will also host evening classes, possibly once a week. “It will be after we’re closed, so that way, people can come in and have the whole place to themselves, take their time, and enjoy it,” Pastusek said.

The Art of Grazing will sell wine and a limited selection of beer. “We’ll also be able to pair those wines with the cheeses on the boards for customers. And then, we’ll have classes in-house where we’ll bring a sommelier in to talk about the wines and talk about how they pair with the cheese.”

Pastusek’s partner and sister, Kathryn Longbottom, does the marketing and social media for The Art of Grazing. The two have five daughters between them. “They all help and are big supporters. So, it’s definitely family-friendly and family-run,” Pastusek shared.
