Grober on the Go

Chow, Baby
Chefs are a transient bunch. They move from one kitchen to another, joining new companies, living in different towns, and, in some cases, dramatically changing the style of food they cook. There aren’t many other professions,...

Afternoon Glory

This Near Southside gastropub’s small menu is big on creative, gourmet flavor.
Lauren Phillips
On a sunny spring day, when a brisk, southerly breeze is pushing pillowy white clouds across the Texas sky, even the most conscientious cubicle dweller is apt to feel a rebellious animus stirring in his or her nethers. Fantasie...

Chocolate Therapy

Chow, Baby
There was something deeply cathartic about watching my server prepare the Chocolate Destruction ($9) at Restaurant 506 at The Sanford House Inn and Spa (506 N. Center St., Arl., 817-861-2129). The concoction arrived at the tabl...

Old School Glamour

Dining at the Six 10 Grille in the Ashton Hotel is a leisurely, mostly positive experience.
Laurie James
The Ashton Hotel is one of Fort Worth’s swankiest boutique lodgings for staycationers and travelers wanting to avoid the chains. Just adjacent to the elegant lobby, the in-house restaurant looks like it might be a secret jewe...

The Chef Empires

Chow, Baby
A couple of weeks ago, at the Fort Worth Weekly’s inaugural Celebrity Chili Cook-Off, I ran into an old friend. Gabriel Ochoa is now the chef at the scandalously underrated Next Wood Fired Bistro & Vino Bar (5003 Colleyvi...

Penny Pinching at Taco Heads

Chow, Baby
I’ve never felt more like my grandpa than on my recent trip to the shiny, new brick-and-mortar location of Taco Heads (1812 Montgomery St., 817-615-9899). “I’m not paying $4.25 for a taco,” I thought, knowing full well ...

Pressed for Time

Chef Felipe Armenta’s third try has a few kinks to work out.
BY LAURIE JAMES
At 11:30 a.m. on a sunny Saturday morning, the hostess at Press Café indicated an inside table for two would be available in 45 minutes to an hour. Seating options include about two dozen tables inside, an upstairs patio that ...

Black Market Timeshare

Chow, Baby
I don’t know why more restaurants don’t do timeshares. Occupying the same building seems to be working pretty well for Nonna Tata and Black Market Bakery & Café (1400 W. Magnolia Ave., 817-223-6909), the newly opened l...

Menu of Enchantment

La Choza Fine Food brings outstanding New Mexican cuisine to Fort Worth.
LAUREN PHILLIPS
North Texans’ love for New Mexico runs deep, but the cuisine of the Land of Enchantment is woefully absent from the Fort Worth restaurant scene. True, you can get roasted Hatch chile by the bucketful for a few weeks every yea...
