Two new restaurants will open on Monday in southern Denton County — one in Flower Mound, and one in Highland Village.
Brothers Sam and Michael Billelo are opening Fiori Italian Restaurant & Bar, which will be a casual environment serving simple, homemade Italian food, many dishes made from recipes passed down generations. The menu will feature fresh, handmade bread and pasta, 10 different bruschettas, many appetizers and snacks, old Italian classics, some pizzas, homemade desserts, cocktails and Italian wines. There will be a lunch menu, vegan menu and gluten-free menu, with homemade gluten-free pasta. It is located at 1221 Flower Mound Road, Suite 100, which was most recently operated by the Salt Rock Steakhouse.
The Brass Tap, an upscale bar and restaurant, is opening in The Shops at Highland Village, next to Bath & Body Works. It will have 60 different beers on tap and over 100 bottles and cans, including many local, regional and specialty imports. Many of the beers will be rotated throughout the year highlighting great beers and new releases from all over. It will also have a full service bar with craft cocktails, wine, and a full kitchen with traditional pub fare — gourmet burgers, nachos, wings and more.
