Papa’s Smokehouse: Old Haunt, New Restaurant

Chow, Baby
Wrap your head around this: I recently had a hamburger with an enchilada and a beef patty between the buns. This wasn’t for some gimmicky, competitive feats-of-eats thing, either. The gluttonous, delicious heart attack of a s...


Showing Its Routes

This Indian eatery brings a fresh take on classic Mughlai and Kashmiri cuisines to Fort Worth.
For foodies, the idea of popping into the nearest Radisson hotel for a bite is likely to be somewhat anathema. Even in the culinary blight of Fort Worth’s south I-35 corridor, most of us, if pushed on the question, would pref...



Chow, Baby
What’s up with all of these new Dallas-based restaurants setting up shop in Fort Worth? Sure, many years back, we were basically Dallas Lite, with heavy hitters such as Uncle Julio’s, Mi Cocina, Pappadeaux, and too many oth...

Chow, Olivella

There’s something old and something new at the newest pizza place in the Fort.
It’s a tale that’s been told at least twice locally in the last couple of years: Someone has brought secret Italian family recipes to America to dazzle diners, and he opens a place, first in Dallas and then in Fort Worth. C...

Chow, Baby
It strikes me as pretentious and white-privilege-y to say that I “found” a great place to get tacos, because “found” is usually code for “drove to a Hispanic neighborhood and ate at a place where hundreds of people ea...

The King Crab Tap House is good, but can it lift the curse?
Kristian Lin
By now, Fort Worth Weekly has written extensively about the curse associated with the location at 2600 West 7th Street, Suite 153. The spot occupies prime real estate in Montgomery Plaza, yet we’ve watched first Mac’s on Se...

Chow, Baby

Afternoon Glory

This Near Southside gastropub’s small menu is big on creative, gourmet flavor.

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...
