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...


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 ...



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...


Redneck Heaven, Garlic Bread Hell

Last Call
Every time I’m on 820 as it loops north of Haltom City, I see the sign. It says Redneck Heaven, and it applies to a gigantic bar and grill with motorcycles parked in front of it. And every time, I think, Oh, geez.



Grilling at Riva Mediterranean

This recently opened Arlington eatery offers Italian and Middle Eastern fare that’s hearty but not overly filling.
JIMMY FOWLER
Italian food for lunch isn’t for everyone — all those carbs can make napping seem so much more alluring than work. But Riva Mediterranean Grill, which recently opened in an Arlington strip mall, has some solid Italian and M...

Zippy’s All-American Comfort

The nearly decade-old classic downtown diner is finding its niche in a new part of town.
BY SOHANA IRENE KUTUB
In a cozy corner at North Main and 20th streets near the Stockyards sits Zippy’s All-American Grill, a no-nonsense restaurant that was located downtown for nearly a decade. In an area oversaturated with Mex-Mex and Tex-Mex op...


Fare’s Fair

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby tries so hard not to be a conspiracy theorist — well, maybe not that hard — and then along comes yet another scheme that benefits everybody except the consumer: separating money from its value, as in having to bu...



Cross Eddie Deen’s

This barbecue stalwart’s new Arlington operation delivers the goods.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Eddie Deen’s Crossroads, in the shadow of Cowboys Stadium, isn’t actually located near a crossroads. Unless, of course, you consider the intersection of Overpriced Parking and Horrible Traffic to be some kind of junction. T...


Café Brazil: Trad Diner Goodness

Dozens of coffees and a 200-plus-item menu make this new TCU-area diner a hot spot.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Café Brazil is not one of those churrascarias, where sultry, gaucho-clad waiters serve meat from large sticks. The distinction is important. This Fort Worth diner on West Berry Street in the spot formerly occupied by Los Vaque...
