In the wilds of Colleyville is tremendous Italian fusion by a Beijing native.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
If you’ve lived in Tarrant County for more than a decade, you might hear “Colleyville” and think “pasture.” Although Colleyville just made Money magazine’s list of the 100 best places to live, the concept of fine di...


Mighty Fine, Oliver’s

Market/restaurant Oliver’s Fine Foods is all good.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Part mini-mart, part fine winery, part butcher and bakery, and part short-order restaurant, Oliver’s Fine Foods’ downtown location occupies valuable corner real estate between Throckmorton and 4th streets. The new place fea...



No-Comfort Zone

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby gets that we’re in Fort Worth, Texas. But it is still mystified as to why so many restaurants around town are doing upscale comfort food. That’s like culinary softball. It’s practically the same menu over and o...


You Can/Can’t Go Home Again

Chow, Baby
As a professional diner-out, I don’t get to go to my old favorite restaurants as often as I’d like — I know, poor me. But when I do get to stop in at one of the standbys these days, I look at the place through different e...

STEVE STEWARD

Chancy Hacienda San Miguel

Opening now may be risky, but this West 7th eatery might have the goods to thrive.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
There’s some winnowing out going on in that hot West 7th Street corridor — Delaney’s Irish Pub and So7 Bistro are gone. But that hasn’t kept Dallas-rooted restaurant companies from sending up new shoots in the area. A f...



Buffalo Cantina Heats Up

The latest adventure from Chef Paul Willis is Tex-Mex fusion — and a hit.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Chef Paul Willis has his fingerprints all over some of the area’s most popular restaurants, including Fuzzy’s Tacos,  Yucatan Taco Stand, and the now-defunct Pedro’s Trailer Park. Willis sells a simple package these ...


Jack’s Porch Swings

Though billed as a sports bar, Jack’s Porch is more of a bistro, offering semi-upscale fare.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Jack’s Porch advertises itself as an “American Sports Grill.” Yes, the menu is full of traditional “American” stand-bys (burgers, fries, wings), and the walls are covered in flat-screen TVs. But Jack’s is in Southla...
