Let’s Have a Show of Paws for Arlington
Chow, Baby
When Chow, Ma left the country, she charged me with the task of keeping her Chow, Puppy full of Puppy Chow. I am a dog person, but this is a lot more dog than I’m accustomed to. The 80-pound Doberman doesn’t understand that...

LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Does sushi have to be served in a fabulous, fancy, downtown restaurant to be good? Midori Sushi’s second location, this one near DFW International Airport (the original is in Irving), can be described as utilitarian. At best....



Scampi’s Cove: A Lakeside Grill

Out on Eagle Mountain Lake is a comfort-food haven.
STEVE STEWARD

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 ...

Chow, Baby
When Chow, Baby said it liked hanging out in South Arlington, it certainly wasn’t talking about Arlington Highlands, the self-proclaimed “lifestyle center” that has given Chow, Baby renewed appreciation for Southlake Town...

In what could be termed a bit of an overreaction to the subpar sub it had last week, over the weekend Chow, Baby was driven to have itself some real sandwiches — 550 miles from here. Domilise’s is an old-school corner bar a...
