Fort Worthology: Fake Urbanism vs. Real Urbanism

Kevin Buchanan
If you’ve spent any time at all along 7th Street lately, you’ve no doubt noticed that a Tom Thumb is being built across from Trinity Park and the So7 development in what is being called “Left Bank,” at 7th and Stayton S...

Resistant to Change

Chow, Baby
The big news in the Fort Worth foodie-verse is that Waters: Bonnell’s Coastal Cuisine (2901 Crockett St, 817-984-1110) is moving out of the West 7th development and headed to Sundance Square. I can’t say I blame the Bonnell...

Next Victim

The King Crab Tap House is good, but can it lift the curse?
Kristian Lin
By now, Fort Worth Weekly has written extensively about the curse associated with the location at 2600 West 7th Street, Suite 153. The spot occupies prime real estate in Montgomery Plaza, yet we’ve watched first Mac’s on Se...


Market + Table = Good

Chow, Baby
I still can’t really explain the convoluted concept behind FW Market + Table (2933 Crockett St., 817-850-9255), but I can tell you that I had an excellent dinner there recently. The staff couldn’t really explain what was go...


True Lettermen

Steve Steward
It’s not that I think I’m Vlade Divac or some other famous person, but occasionally I like to drink in neighborhoods where nobody recognizes me, to be just one more face in a blur of the hundreds passing in and out of a bus...


Moving Up to Varsity

Steve Steward
I have one question for the Varsity Tavern: Is your mascot a bear? I think it’s his gray fur that’s throwing me off, because when I picture the mural of him on the wall near the hostess station, my brain replaces him with e...

A Cluttered Market

Market + Table is a jack of all trades, master of none.
It’s hard to figure out exactly what is going on at Fort Worth’s new Market + Table. The West 7th eatery is cram-packed with so many under-realized concepts it can make your head spin. There is a coffee bar, a juice bar, an...


The West 7th Vortex

Chow, Baby
Restaurants come and go. That’s just the nature of the business. I’ve worked in and have written about the biz long enough to know not to get too attached to a place. But every once in awhile I’m taken aback when I hear t...


The Whiskey Garden: Shallow End?

Steve Steward
I don’t know what you know about The Whiskey Garden, but if it’s based on its Yelp page, I can only say you should probably see what it’s like for yourself –– assuming you can get in. As a white guy, I had no problem ...


Diving into West 7th

Steve Steward
Welp, after not even a year, Uptown Tavern is no mas, making it the third bar to occupy that Camp Bowie/West 7th space since — what, 2010? I don’t really have an opinion about the closing. Of course I feel bad for anyone pu...
