Grady Spears' restaurant in Ft. Worth?

  • p

Central Market here in Houston recently had a cooking class with Grady Spears and the brochure made reference to his restaurant "80 West." I did a Google search and found no reference to it. Does any one here know any thing about this? We used to love Reata.

  1. Last Fall, Spears announced his next restaurant (80 West), to be located at 9904 Camp Bowie West, Fort Worth, TX. If you go to his website (link below) and click on "Grady's Range," and look in the "Read all about it" frame, you can get the details on it. According to the early announcements, it was slated to open Spring of '06. Haven't heard anything about it opening yet.

      Maybe the construction crew stopped in for one too many "ice cold beers"?

    2. No mater what, he'll only last a year - nobody does burnout better than Grady...

      1. Yep you better eat up quick. Grady is there one week gone the next.

        1. I hear that dude is one crazy (literally) chef.

            Yes indeed he evidently was treated for fondness for certain substances in the past. Hopefully is is over that and will do okay in his next venture.

              He is a great chef, has wonderful recipes, but is clueless about running a business and burns out within a year unless he has a level-headed partner. So eat up folks before he loses his shirt on this one. Again. For the tenth time.
