The Chili’s Grill & Bar location near the Fort Worth Zoo will close Oct. 24 to make way for a new location for Dallas-based Eatzi’s Market & Bakery.
Eatzi’s executive Adam Romo said Wednesday that construction will begin Nov. 1 and the store is expected to open in March.
Eatzi’s is marking its 20th year as a gourmet take-out shop and grocer. The location will be the company’s fifth, and second in Tarrant County after a Grapevine store.
Eatzi’s investors also recently purchased The Slow Bone, a popular west Dallas barbecue restaurant.
By the time Eatzi’s opens, it will have competition across the street. A new Tom Thumb supermarket is planned for the WestBend shops on River Run, replacing a former Fresh Market grocer.
