Round Rock (Williamson County) — A Florida restaurateur has filed a permit with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation for renovations to an existing commercial building.

The planned restaurant, Whiskey Cake Restaurant & Bar, is located at 2600 N. Interstate 35 in the north central portion of the city. The restaurant-bar stands on a 1.2-acre lot.

The scope of work involves the remodeling of the 6,317 square foot restaurant with a cooler and storage room.

The estimated cost of the renovation is $2,550,000 and is expected to begin on Dec. 1 and be completed by March 1, 2022.

The restaurant is known for “tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes and cocktails out (of its) from-scratch-only kitchen and bar,” according to its website.

KJD Mello LLC., the owners, are based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They purchased the dormant Mellow Mushroom pizza restaurant building on Sept. 25, 2018.

Whiskey Cake Restaurant & Bar has locations in Tampa Bay, Florida, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the Houston and Dallas area and San Antonio amongst others.  

The design firm, Civitarese Morgan Architecture, out of Dallas are on board the project.
