K8 in Your Face

Rebelling against hometown Fort Worth takes an avant-garde artist to success in New York.
ANNABELLE MASSEY MALLOY
For nine days in mid-July, K8 Hardy was marooned. On an island. She made the best of it, taking long walks on the deserted shore, sandwiched between wind-carved sand dunes on her left and the great blue Atlantic Ocean on her ri...



Pork ribs and brisket liven up this two-meat plate at Woody Creek. Tony Robles

Q at the Creek

A Stockyards Party

Get LAO

Muang LAO Cuisine avoids the pan-Asian muddle excellently.

CHOWBABY

Other Side of the Apron

CHOW, BABY
Back when I made my living in the food business, I kind of resented Restaurant Week, when local eateries create a prix fixe menu for $35 and donate some of proceeds to charity. I viewed it as amateur night — lots of people wh...
