SHULA’s 347 GRILL MAKES TEXAS DEBUT AT

SHERATON FORT WORTH HOTEL AND SPA

Hall of Fame Football Coach opens first Texas 347 Grill restaurant


FORT WORTH, Texas (July 11, 2008) -- The hottest score this summer is 347---Shula's 347 Grill at the newly opened Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel and Spa. A new restaurant concept for the area, Shula's 347 Grill is making its Texas debut and is now open for business, with a celebrity-filled, invitational grand opening planned for the end of July.


The chic 5,385 square-foot space at 1701 Commerce Street in downtown Fort Worth just across from the Water Gardens exudes a casual, energized atmosphere and features a fully appointed 255-seat restaurant, high-impact bar and 24-seat private dining room. Dark hardwoods and pigskin covered walls complement the décor, with photographs that showcase local sports stars and legends as well as Fort Worth landmarks.


The restaurant’s namesake, Hall of Fame coach Don Shula, the winningest coach in NFL history with 347 career victories, will join in festivities along with other sports personalities and local luminaries on July 30.


“Shula’s 347 has everything from gourmet salads to fresh specialty fish,” said Virginia Benke, head of food and beverage at the Sheraton. “Shula’s exclusively serves Premium Black Angus Beef burgers as well as the famous Shula Cut steaks, the best beef money can buy, using the same aging process as the legendary Shula’s Steak Houses.”

 

Shula's 347 Grill is an exciting addition to the remarkable transformation underway at the southern edge of Fort Worth's vibrant downtown. The restaurant brings a new dimension to the City's already fine selection of restaurants and entertainment – and the pro-football aura is a perfect prelude to the 2011 Super Bowl on the North Texas horizon.


The Fort Worth Shula’s 347 Grill is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday-Thursday, and 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday.


Based in Miami, Florida, Shula Steak Houses, LP has four restaurant concepts including Shula’s 2 (upscale sports restaurant), Shula’s on the Beach (beach location brand with emphasis on steaks and seafood), Shula’s 347 (serving Shula’s custom cuts in a casual atmosphere), and Shula’s Steak House (fine dining steak house).
