Renowned Fort Worth chef and restaurateur Jerrett Joslin is on the move: He'll open a new restaurant called Vintage Grill & Car Museum in Weatherford and relocate Wild Mushroom Steak House, his current popular Weatherford restaurant, to Fort Worth.
Vintage Grill & Car Museum will be a restaurant with a distinctive something extra: a vintage car collection owned by Tom Moncrief, who is Joslin's partner in the venture. There'll be a restaurant, bar, gift shop and Moncrief's eclectic collection of vintage automobiles.
Vintage Grill & Car Museum will offer lunch, dinner, and brunch on Saturday and Sunday. The menus will feature Southern cuisine such as chicken-fried steak, chicken and waffles, and more. Whenever possible, they'll use produce from the Weatherford Farmers Market across the street. The museum will be open during restaurant hours, and there will be no admittance fee.
"We're excited to bring this unique dining experience to Weatherford's downtown," Joslin says in a release. "We are in the perfect location to serve local businesses and residents as well as those looking for a destination experience while visiting the area."
Joel Rhodes will be executive chef; a resident of Weatherford, Rhodes has cooked, bartended, served and managed all over Texas, from casual dining to BBQ to Italian to steakhouses. Additionally, he is a pastry arts graduate from the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in Austin.
Wild Mushroom Steak House & Lounge will move to 3206 Winthrop Ave. at the Ridglea Village Shopping Center, in the spot that used to be Ray's. Executive chef will be Darrin Green, who brings 30 years of culinary experience from chef roles at a number of country clubs, Central Market and, most recently, at Fort Worth's Omni Hotel.
