Following our disappointment with the delayed opening of Legacy Hall at Legacy West, Front Burner is back in our good books with the announced opening of Haywire restaurant, a three-story restaurant in the same building as Legacy Hall.
Touted at the ultimate Texas dining experience—complete with lots of taxidermy decor, Texas whiskey and locally sourced Texas ingredients—Haywire restaurant is set to open Wednesday, Nov. 29, at 5901 Winthrop Street in Plano’s acclaimed Legacy West development.
Haywire is the latest concept from Front Burner restaurants, the restaurant geniuses behind The Keeper at The Shops at Legacy, Whiskey Cake and Sixty Vines, Ida Claire, and, of course, Legacy Hall now set to open in December.
Haywire restaurant offers the true Texas experience with an urban refresh. Similar to its sister restaurant, The Ranch at Las Colinas, Haywire restaurant features heritage recipes made modern with Texas-sourced ingredients for tastes both unexpected and comforting. It’s cuisine that’s hearty enough for the ranch hand yet perfectly refined for the businessman or woman.
Haywire’s atmosphere is inspired by the unique style of Marfa, Texas, and is spread out over three floors, each offering a distinct experience. Kick back by the fireplace with a handcrafted cocktail in the first-floor whiskey lounge, enjoy a Wagyu Tomahawk ribeye with a bold red in the inviting second-floor dining room or unwind with friends and a cold local beer or Cadillac margarita under the big Texas sky on the rooftop patio.
Everything is bigger in Texas and Haywire is staying true to its roots with a 10-day-long grand-opening celebration.
