Happy New Year

Static
What seemed like a dream home in 2004 became a living nightmare for Tim and Christine Ruggiero after drillers started fracking for natural gas just 300 feet from their front door in Decatur. Fort Worth Weekly and others wrote s...


Bless This Lasagna

Chow, Baby
A few months ago, I wrote a column about locations that are restaurant sinkholes — places where, for unknown reasons, restaurants go to die (Lift the Spell: Eat at Tie’s, Aug. 31). One glaring omission on that list was 400 ...



Taking Me to Marrakech

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby never met a falafel it didn’t love. OK, that’s not entirely true. But it’s an awful falafel that doesn’t meet or exceed my admittedly low expectations. The same is true for gyros, hummus, and most things Midd...


Calvin Tillman After The Storm

Jeff Prince
Remember the former mayor of DISH who fled the city after gas drillers turned it into an industrial site? Tillman and some of his townsfolk fought a long time against state laws and regulatory agencies that are geared toward pr...

Bite into Hammerhead Sushi

Though sushi is the thing at this sleek TCU-area establishment, pan-Asian offerings abound.
JIMMY FOWLER
Nestled somewhat discreetly across from The Aardvark on West Berry Street near TCU, the recently opened Hammerhead Sushi is laid-back but also aiming to be something a little more than just a college joint. Tan walls with black...



Rocking Sea Siam

This longstanding Thai eatery isn’t fancy, just fabulous.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Lucky, lucky people in North Fort Worth: You’re in easy reach of several superb family-owned, family-friendly, out-of-the-ordinary restaurants, including Celio’s, Two Brothers Bistro, MK’s Sushi, Oyster Ranch, and OC Burg...


So7 Bistro: C’est Magnifique

French flavors abound in Jean Michel Sakouhi’s latest endeavor.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Over the past decade, French restaurateur Jean Michel Sakouhi has pushed French and Mediterranean flavors on Cowtown, first with The Balcony, then with the recently departed Vault. His new So7 Bistro quietly has  occupied ...
