Second Bar + Kitchen opens at Crazy Water in Mineral Wells
Second Bar + Kitchen-the fifth location of the casual upscale original in Austin-has opened at The Crazy Water Hotel in Mineral Wells, headed by David Bull, executive chef and director of food and beverage at the hotel for La Corsha Hospitality Group, the property’s management group.
Bull, whose resume includes stops at The Driskill in Austin and Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, is bringing familiar hearty and healthy takes to the Mineral Wells restaurant, ranging from braised short ribs to “farm to market salads” and the Brisket + Burrata appetizer. The restaurant’s bar menu includes a mix of cocktails and mocktails, a nod to the history of Mineral Wells with the healing properties of its mineral waters that drew such notable visitors as Clark Gable and Judy Garland and triggered a buildup of bathhouses, drinking spots and spas. The Texas Legislature earlier this year named Mineral Wells the “Wellness Capital of Texas.”
