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...

Market + Table = Good

Chow, Baby
I still can’t really explain the convoluted concept behind FW Market + Table (2933 Crockett St., 817-850-9255), but I can tell you that I had an excellent dinner there recently. The staff couldn’t really explain what was go...

The World on a Tray

Andalous Mediterranean Grill offers some Lebanese greatness, mess hall-style.
Laurie James
Regional variations of Mediterranean cooking produce a seemingly endless variety of slightly different spins on basic staple ingredients ­­­­–– chickpeas, eggplant, sharp white cheese, and a variety of meats (usually no...

West 7th: Same Ol’, New Ol’

Chow, Baby
Is it just me, or is the same bar/grill opening over and over in West 7th? I was sad to learn that Trinity River Tap House was closing –– its last day of business was on Valentine’s Day –– but I can’t help but feel ...

Building on Tradition

The venerable Swiss Pastry Shop is open for dinner.
LAUREN PHILLIPS
The sad truth is that many of the family-run institutions we’ve known and loved aren’t around anymore. Times and tastes have changed, and there is a long list of now-defunct bakeries and restaurants that looked like they ha...

A Stone’s Throw

Twelve Stones aspires to greatness and comes quite close.
Laurie James
You have to admire a second-career chef  –– someone who loves food so much that he would ditch a successful IT career for the grueling pace of running a kitchen. Twelve Stones’ chef-owner David Burdick went to culinary s...

Native Grub

Chow, Baby
I’ve driven by Las Pericas (915 E. Northside Dr., 817-332-5997) 1,000 times and thought, “That is probably right up my alley.” The small, boxy taqueria looks the part of an inviting dive gem. Finally, after my 1,001st dri...

Recommending Revolver

Chow, Baby
It’s a funny thing. I’ve lived in Fort Worth most of my life, was a chef/server for a decade, and I’ve been part-time food critic going on five years now. And still, every time someone asks me for a restaurant recommendat...

Too Old School

Chef Blythe’s Southern Bistro plays it safe.
LAUREN PHILLIPS
My guest and I arrived at Chef Blythe’s Southern Bistro on a Thursday evening just as dinner service was beginning to wind down. The suburban space in North Richland Hills is bright and clean with high ceilings and concrete f...
