Fort Worth is exploding

Recommended Posts

I grew up in Haltom City so Stockyards is where we went to become men. My cousin and several Friends were door guys/bouncers at Longhorn's and Cowboys Cats from mid 90s to around 2000. Lots of debauchery. Neon Moon was the after party to pick up the drunk chick's.  Lots of fights with the Rock Island/LA Raza guys. In HC we kinda had our own crew but were close with Eastside Gangster Crips.

Colleyville is ignoring the mask order because they can’t fuck with this precious event! 

Quote

Colleyville’s statement said masks will be available for those who want to wear them at Friday’s Stars & Guitars event and “multiple hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the area.” The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at City Park.

Things are going swimmingly.

Fred’s Texas Cafe’s long-awaited reopening lasted one day.

The burger landmark in the West 7th area opened Wednesday and then closed Thursday after a staffer tested positive for COVID-19.

The restaurant is now expected to reopen in mid-July, owners Terry Chandler and Quincy Wallace wrote in a letter to customers.

A second location in north Fort Worth, Fred’s North, reopens Friday after an overnight deep cleaning.

Fred’s reopened after three months “with much anticipation and excitement,” Chandler and Wallace wrote: “Unfortunately, this morning we had to reclose those doors.”

Chef Bria Downey, a semifinalist for cooking’s James Beard Award, will be the culinary director when Roy Pope Grocery reopens, owners said.

Downey was a semifinalist for “Rising Star Chef of the Year” for her work at Clay Pigeon Food + Drink, but departed at the beginning of the coronavirus recession.

Restaurateur Louis Lambert and operations partner Chris Reale have completed buying Roy Pope. a 77-year-old neighborhood supermarket, and will reopen after remodeling, Reale said.

Roy Pope Grocery will also serve craft barbecue and specials from the former Flores Barbecue location in Clearfork, Reale said.

“Game days will absolutely have green chile grits, carnitas tacos and smoked meats on the menu,” Reale said.

The grocery, 2300 Merrick St., is under contract to Lambert and investors Mark Harris and Rodger Chieffalo.

When the sale was announced, Lambert, co-founder of Dutch’s Hamburgers and owner of Austin restaurants, said “We want to embrace the history of service and everything that made Roy Pope special.”

He compared it to the Royal Blue urban markets In Austin — “small and with the fresh meats Roy Pope was known for.”

Former owners Bob and Renee Larance closed the supermarket in March just as coronavirus restrictions began, but Bob Larance said they had already been planning to sell it.

Flores BBQ gets passed around like a drunk freshman at a frat party. Is this location #5?

What happened to Fred's? Ownership change? Stretched too thin with multiple locations?

The last time I was there, our waitress was probably literally the dumbest person I have ever encountered. Neither the burgers nor the chicken fried steaks are anywhere close to what they used to be. 

SAD!

It'll be a shame if they go belly up, as it's the only thing on that side of 7th besides Rodeo Goat that isn't complete bullshit, but as bad as that place has gotten I can't say I would miss it.

Flores and Panther City have my vote for best in Cowtown.  Agree with the sad since we are close to Clearfork and that was a weekly given

Agree 100%.  Dayne's BBQ is quite good too but it is only open on Saturday's so that sucks.

I'm so glad Flores is back.

The official statement. 

Quote

To all of our Deep Ellum Funkytown Fermatorium friends & family,

We want to thank you for your love and support over the last year as we set out to put down roots in the great community of Fort Worth. We were very excited to get up and running with our first location outside of our home in Deep Ellum. Unfortunately, the last few months have presented many challenges and we have made the difficult decision to close this location. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic paired in part with our lack of ability to sell beer to go due to House Bill 3287 have made it very difficult for us to make it work. We can assure you that Deep Ellum Brewing Company is not going anywhere, and you can still find our beers at retail locations throughout Texas. Once we’re able to reopen our Dallas taproom according to guidelines from the State of Texas, we would love to host you there as well. 

#LoveRunsDeep

This will fail, as will most of Mule Alley.

The newest Stockyards restaurant is ready to open.

Yes, chef Marcus Paslay picked a heckuva time to open his Provender Hall grill.

But Paslay, chef at Clay Pigeon and Piattello Italian, has a plan.

“I think the Stockyards is the place to be,“ he said the other day, with Provender opening any day now at 122 E. Exchange Ave.

“International tourism is slower, but local and regional tourism is going to be busier. We’ll get people from around the region because they’re not hopping on a plane and taking off somewhere,” he said.

That’s a glass-half-full way to look at his new grill serving steaks, seafood, burgers and chicken-fried steak in Mule Alley on the Fort Worth Herd cattle drive route next door to and above Shake Shack.

Paslay’s other restaurants reopened after an 11-week pandemic break that he described as “pretty depressing.”

At Provender Hall, he describes a restaurant and bar overlooking Exchange Avenue at a price point similar to Lonesome Dove Western Bistro but with a bigger menu.

The entrees include $38-$40 steaks $28-$32 entrees like redfish or trout, and a $22 smoked half-chicken with grilled broccolini.

There’s a chicken-fried steak. It’s $25, But there’s also a $13 burger with fries.

(If it’s as good as the Clay Pigeon burger, it’ll be a hit.)

“We know red meat is going to do well, and steaks will do well,” Paslay said.

But he also expects to sell grilled trout and oysters on the half shell.

The menu is described as “American southern cuisine.”

His other restaurants brought top-quality steaks and pastas.

Mule Alley is a bit more of a challenge.

The Stockyards has never been as much of a dining scene as it should be, although chef Tim Love’s three restaurants bring the area Southwestern grill dishes, Spanish tapas and burgers.

The Stockyards is a good choice for weekday or weekend lunch, or for a weeknight dinner.

Lonesome Dove has an inexpensive lunch menu. Old favorites like Cattlemen’s Steak House and the Star Cafe haven’t changed. Hunter Brothers H3 Ranch is probably the leading choice for middle-of-the-road prices.

Provender Hall will have to count on its location and the appeal of the new Mule Alley.

Other coming restaurants in Mule Alley include 97 West at Hotel Drover, by former Max’s Wine Dive chef Jenna Kinard; Second Rodeo Brewing Co., by Jason Boso (Twisted Root); Sidesaddle Saloon, by Sarah Castillo (Tinie’s, Taco Heads); and the Biscuit Bar, a Dallas-based restaurant featuring biscuit sandwiches (already open in Arlington).

Look for Provender Hall to open within days; provenderhall.com.

This is quite the fucking stretch of Alta Mere.

Liquor store, that Bexotic is a “lingerie store”, massage parlor, smoke shop on the far right. And at the end of the next strip over is Christal’s, which has been there forever. That’s all your shopping needs in one very convenient block.
