’Cue Up Soda Springs

This barbecue joint in White Settlement is friendly but not memorable.
STEVE STEWARD
The town of White Settlement might still be living down its 2009 opportunity to change its name to something less racially charged. However, the little west-o’-Fort Worth ville is still a homey place. A culinary mecca? Hardly...


Saviano’s: Real Italian?

You’ve never had Italian food until you’ve had Saviano’s – Italian grandmothers aside.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Saviano’s proclaims, “If you ain’t had Saviano’s, you ain’t had Italian.” Grammatical issues aside, that’s a bold statement. But the new downtown restaurant has the goods to back it up.



Shaw’s Burgers, Shakes, and More

This new BYOB eatery is another strong entry in Near Southside’s restaurant row.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
It’s been no secret that David Shaw and Ann Diakas-Shaw, co-owners of Shaw’s Burgers and Shakes on the Near South Side, have had a little difficulty opening their new joint (see: “Bar Fight,” May 26, 2010). Shaw’s ope...


Zoë’s Kitchen Cooks

For quick, fresh, inherently healthful Mediterranean food, Zoë’s Kitchen delivers.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
The philosophy of the Birmingham, Ala.-based Zoë’s Kitchen chain is fairly simple: fresh food favoring the Mediterranean diet (heavy on veggies, plant-based protein, and fish) delivered in sensible portions. This hard-to-arg...



Still a Fiesta

This Southside Tex-Mex staple stays simple, fresh, and tasty.
CAROLINE COLLIER
Very few things are like they used to be. Everything changes, and “everything” includes menus at favorite restaurants. But not at Fiesta. The traditional Southside Tex-Mex eatery does things much as it did when it opened 33...


Boo-Ray’s Ragin’ Cajun

Straight from the Crescent City to your belly, Boo-Ray’s does Looziana right.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Louisiana cooking isn’t completely foreign to Fort Worth, but restaurants specializing in Cajun cuisine here can probably be counted on one hand. All of them also involve someone of Looziana background. Add one to that short ...



Patrizio Takes Flight

A few mishaps aside, the experience at the new West 7th eatery is winning.
LEONARD EUREKA
Patrizio Pizza Pasta and Vino has been a fixture in Dallas’ Highland Park Village for decades. It has a welcoming ambiance, thanks mainly to the walled patio shaded by oak trees and equipped with umbrella-covered tables and o...


Terra Mediterranean Conquers All

In the new West 7th Street development may be the start of a food empire.
JIMMY FOWLER
If people are still feeling the pinch of a troubled economy, you wouldn’t know it by a visit last Saturday night to the recently opened Terra Mediterranean Grill in the West 7th Street development. A small line formed at the ...



Garliq Doesn’t Stink

The newly opened family-owned Southlake eatery piles on the flavor.
BY LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Garliq is a newish, family-owned, family-friendly eatery in Southlake. The menu is full of interesting factoids about the herb, which is apparently also considered a vegetable. Unusually, for a cheerfully decorated strip-mall r...


Suite!

KEN SHIMAMOTO
I’m the world’s worst Japanese person. If I didn’t play in a band with a Japanophile, I would never have eaten sushi, the food that my mother would labor all night long to prepare for special occasions and tha...
