Restaurant proud of its wood-fired grill debuts in McKinney's buzzy Hub 121
There's a new restaurant opening at Hub 121, the buzzy development in McKinney at the intersection of Alma Drive and SH121: Called Fork and Fire, it's a restaurant boasting a wood-fired grill from chef Jason Graman, and according to a release, it opened in mid-November at 7540 TX-121 #150.
This is actually the second location. The first opened in Plano on The Boardwalk in Granite Park, originally under the name B. Frank & Relish before rebranding to Fork and Fire in 2019.
The new location in McKinney is bigger than the popular Plano original, with more space for intimate dining, an expanded bar area, lots of natural light, and a patio that overlooks Hub 121’s amphitheater.
“We looked at all the best parts of our original location and bumped them up a notch,” said owner Jason Graman. “It’s an elevated dining experience, which is why we’re excited to be part of the exploding new scene at Hub 121.”
The building blocks of the menu include an Argentine-style woodfired grill, with bread they bake in-house daily and use of locally grown produce.
Other building blocks mentioned in the release are all about animal products as follows:
- Akaushi beef, Wagyu cattle and raised in Texas
- Faroe Island salmon. Situated north of Scotland in the Northeast Atlantic, this is obviously not locally grown.
- House-made pastrami. AKA Jason’s “8145 Pastrami” featuring brisket that's brined, seasoned, smoked, and steamed.
The bar specializes in bourbon, whiskey, and tequila, with more than 50 varieties of tequila, 24 wines on tap, and 23 beers on tap.
Graman is a native of Brooklyn who has been in the restaurant business for more than 28 years, both in Dallas and previously in Los Angeles.
