Word out of the west side of Fort Worth is that Duce – the much-ballyhooed restaurant that Tim Love opened in 2006, but that never seemed to find its footing – has officially been transformed into Fuego.
Love sold the place in April to restaurateur Efrain Benitez, who previous helped developed a chain of restaurants in Chicago. It's taken Benitez a few months to erase all traces of Love from the place.
Between his New York version of Lonesome Dove opening to disastrous reviews in fall 2006 (and closing the following spring), and the sale of Duce, it hasn't been an easy couple of years for Love.;
