Cowford Chophouse will hold a job fair this week to hire about 50 employees for the new restaurant. The fair will be held 2-6p.m., Wednesday through Friday at 301 E. Bay St., two blocks east of the restaurant that’s under construction.

Applicants should bring an up-to-date resume and be prepared to interview.

No opening date has been given for the restaurant, which has been described as a classic chophouse. It’s going into the old Bostwick Building, which had been vacant for years. A building permit issued last September was for a $6.4 million buildout.

The restaurant is owned by Forking Amazing Restaurants, which also owns Bistro Aix in San Marco and Il Desco in Riverside. The group closed Ovinte at St. Johns Town Center earlier this month.
