Chef Jack Gilmore’s demi empire is moving closer to Central Austin. Gilmore and partner Tom Kamm will open a fourth location of Jack Allen’s Kitchen at 3010 W. Anderson Lane in the former Fork & Vine space. A spring 2017 opening date is slated.

The former Z’Tejas executive chef has already created a sensation in Oak Hill, Round Rock and the Davenport areas with his blend of farm-to-table and comfort cuisine. The restaurant will be open daily for lunch and dinner and feature a menu similar to the other locations in the area. Gilmore also recently opened Salt Traders Coastal Cooking in Round Rock. A longtime veteran of the Austin scene, Gilmore’s selection of locations outside the city’s core is telling in a market facing skyrocketing rents.

The space will be renovated by Dick Clark Architecture.
