Hillstone restaurant vets to open new Southlake restaurant this fall

A group of former Hillstone and Houston’s restaurant chefs will open a branch of their popular wood-fired grill in Southlake this fall.

John Nestor, Felipe Armenta and Virginia Dalbeck plan to open an outpost of their Cork & Pig Tavern in the Shops of Southlake, joining Mesero restaurant as new tenants in the tony shopping center anchored by a Central Market grocery store, a Bone Fish Grill and Coal Vines.

Cork & Pig Tavern describes itself as a unique, chef driven restaurant specializing in wood-grilled meats, gourmet salads sandwiches, and appetizers. They also offer an wines, cocktails and beers. The 4,219-square-foot Southlake Cork & Pig will sit adjacent to Mesero, a specialty Mexican restaurant serving DFW’s best frozen Margaritas. The new Cork & Pig will be the group’s fourth unit, joining siblings in Las Colinas, Fort Worth and Odessa.
