Actor and spokesperson Melissa Scott Clark (formerly Biggs) of Baywatch, Rush Hour 2, and Sports Illustrated, has partnered with real estate developer and hospitality entrepreneur Gina Champion Cain, (The Patio) to premier their flagship specialty stores, The Front Porch, located at 928 Fort Stockton, Suite 101 in Mission Hills, opening Saturday, August 2 at 11:00 a.m.

“I created The Front Porch because I have the desire to share the incredible tastes I discovered during my travels around the world. My partner Gina created The Patio Restaurants to share her culinary vision of excellence with the communities she serves. Together, with our combined and coveted savior-faire, we are delighted to bring our handcrafted recipes to Mission Hills, reflecting both visions. We are truly a remarkable fit for an incredible neighborhood,” shared a passionate Scott Clark.

Aiming to satisfy the cravings of foodies, gift givers and porch sitters, The Front Porch will provide a welcoming, lively atmosphere of its namesake. It will feature an artfully curated blend of gourmet pantry items, kitchen accoutrements, cookbooks, candles, linens, boutique wines, crème fraiche salted caramels, and picnic baskets as well as serendipitous finds such as uncommon furnishings, and antiques. The store will proudly showcase products by local artisans and purveyors.

Yet another feature of this unique store will be the olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting bar with an inventive twist on bottling, “we will be repurposing elegant, one-of-a-kind bottles, to fill with our very special first-press, unfiltered olive oils”, says Scott Clark. The bottles will serve as collectibles and available for refilling if desired.

The Front Porch will feature The Patio Restaurant’s Chef, preparing a daily assortment of gourmet healthy and delicious salads, specialty soups, gourmet sandwiches and yummy desserts in mason jars, perfect for family summer picnics, concerts in the park, or share with friends, neighbors and guests.

Just like The Patio, The Front Porch is highly committed to pet lovers and their dogs, featuring handcrafted dog beds, dog dishes and imaginative pet accessories. The Front Porch will offer a newly created assortment of dog desserts, developed especially for the store. The doggie owners will have dinner at The Patio, while the doggies will be able to enjoy dessert at The Front Porch.

Adjacent to The Patio Restaurant on Goldfinch, The Front Porch is 1950 square feet and open Mondays 11 – 6, Tue-Thur 11 – 7, Fri/Sat 10 – 8 and Sundays 11 – 5.
