Waiting for Boundaries

Chow, Baby
The restaurant was mostly empty on a recent weeknight as my two guests and I contemplated the unfamiliar menu. It was 8 p.m., and the place didn’t close for another hour, but we still thought about leaving the desolate dining...

As the Restaurant World Turns

Chow, Baby
Has there ever been a year in the local culinary world as tumultuous, surprising, and exciting as 2015? Well, yes. All of them. That’s the nature of the beast. Restaurants open and close –– some are good, others are awful...

East Bound and Down

Chow, Baby
Restaurants on Miller Avenue on the East Side are awfully colorful –– and in some cases just colored awfully, like the “Barney purple” Taqueria Tepito (1104 Miller Ave., 817-536-5653) and the harlequin-hued Fort Worth S...

A Cure for Hangovers

Chow, Baby
I was first introduced to the Hangover Burger ($12) a few months back. A friend and I were having lunch at The Pour Hou-, uh, I mean the Trinity River Tap House (2725 W. 7th St., 817-335-2575), and I was drawn to the kitchen si...

The Deep North

The North Side is still the best area in town to find a lunch bargain. Where else can you get a delicious enchilada special for $3.99? There are a dozen good restaurants right on Main Street near the Stockyards, but if you real...

Brunch Anxiety

Chow, Baby
I must be really spoiled. Or maybe worrying about the brunch menus of two places that just replaced their chefs is the way I cope with the chaos and misery of life. My therapist may call that displacement, but someone’s got t...

Postpartum Party

Chow, Baby
Someone very close to Chow, Baby is pregnant, and it’s really cramping her style. Don’t get me wrong, I admire the discipline it takes to abstain from booze, certain types of fish, caffeine, and pretty much everything fun i...

Growling is for Stomachs

Chow, Baby
What is it about beer and wine snobs that irritates me so? I mean, I’m a wine person, but I don’t stick my whole face into a glass of vino and sniff like I’m huffing paint. I don’t swirl the juice around, raise it above...

Food Network Nominees

Chow, Baby
I get so much e-mail from national PR people who have never read my column, I can barely hit delete fast enough. But recently, I received a press release from The Food Network asking me to spread the word about an open casting ...
