Seasoned Chef Bringing Affordable Upscale to Fort Worth


Chef Stefon Rishel with Trident Restaurant Group will soon open the Wishbone & Flynt doors to the public. Together the group brings more than 75 years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry to the new concept, which will launch in the trendy South Main district of Fort Worth. The restaurant is slated to open in late January/early February of 2020.

“This concept has been in the works for several years. With my partners, I now have the opportunity to bring it to life,” says Chef Rishel, executive chef and part owner. “I’m eager to bring my expertise and creativity to Wishbone & Flynt. My goal is to provide a consistently exceptional experience for our guests in every way – from scratch-made food and craft cocktails to a comfortable upscale atmosphere and friendly service.”

The restaurant will soon announce its grand opening date and promises a restaurant its guests will want to make a regular spot. Offerings will include a boutique wine list of 80 hand-selected bottles with 40 by the glass as well as craft cocktails and exclusive dishes.

“We’ve been hard at work and are beyond excited to share Wishbone & Flynt with our DFW community,” says Kyle Bryson, one of three principal owners of Trident Restaurant Group. “We partnered with Chef Rishel for many reasons, but mainly because of his reputation and experience in the restaurant industry. His food speaks for itself, but we were looking for more than just great food. We wanted a trusted partner too, and we’ve found that in him.”

Wishbone & Flynt will have an adjoining upscale speakeasy, The Amber Room. The atmosphere is reminiscent of The Great Gatsby and will feature craft cocktails and other selections for those seeking an exclusive after-hours lounge experience.
