Yolk restaurant to open in Fort Worth’s Sundance Square

Chicago-based Yolk, which offers breakfast and lunch, is coming to Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth.

The 5,100-square-foot restaurant is expected to open by the end of the year in the space last used by Cowtown Diner, at 305 Main St., according to Sundance Square. Cowtown Diner closed Tuesday night following a private event.

“We believe Yolk will quickly become the hot spot for an early morning breakfast or light lunch,” said Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square. “The restaurant’s breakfast menu is outstanding and the concept has received great reviews. We believe Yolk will fill the niche for a bright, conversational urban breakfast spot.”

Yolk, known for generous portions, a unique and wide-ranging menu, specialty juices and a private-label premium coffee, has locations in Chicago, Indianapolis and Dallas. It opened in January in Dallas’ One Arts Plaza on Routh Street.

The restaurant will be open for breakfast and lunch with hours running from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Cowtown Diner was opened in January 2010 by chef Scott Jones. The restaurant was acquired in 2012 by the owner of the Mercury Chop House next door. The space was leased by the La Madeleine restaurant chain from 1998 to 2009.
