Café Brazil: Trad Diner Goodness

Dozens of coffees and a 200-plus-item menu make this new TCU-area diner a hot spot.

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...


Loosen Up at Buck n’ Loons

LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Is there a spate of new bars that happen to have good eats? Or is this phenomenon really a spate of new restaurants conveniently doubling as bars? Fort Worth is home to a few taverns boasting better-than-usual bar fare: 8.0 in ...


Rip-it

LAURIE BARKER JAMES
What better place than by TCU to open a restaurant named after Old Rip, a once-famous horned frog who, in the early 1900s, was interred into the Eastland County courthouse’s cornerstone only to reappear three decades late...
