Jason Dady is taking over the restaurant space at the Fairmount Hotel, 401 S. Alamo St., according to an announcement he made on Twitter. The restaurant will be called Insignia and will open in as little as six weeks.
“The menu will focus on modern American cuisine,” Dady said. “I wanted a menu that reflects both our French/Italian cooking style with Texas and southern inspirations. The menu will change often, depending on seasonality. The wine list will be an eclectic list consisting from wines from six regions from across the globe: Texas, Oregon, Sonoma County, Spain/Portugal, Chile/Argentina and Southern France.”
Insignia is the latest restaurant in a list that dates back to the 1980s when Bruce Auden operated Polo’s there. Most recently, it had been Luca Ristorante.
Dady’s other restaurants include the Lodge Restaurant of Castle Hills, Bin 555, Tre Trattoria and Two Bros. BBQ Market.
“We are extremely excited about heading downtown and can’t wait to get the ball rolling!” he said.
