Sorry to hear that Tillman's won't make it.  I really loved their Oak Cliff location, but something was lost in translation when they opened in Fort Worth.

On the plus side, local business is expanding...

Avoca Coffee will open their second location at 835 Foch Street.  That's the space immediately to the north of La Familia.

 

Wow.  First Stir Crazy Baked Goods opens a second location, now Avoca.  Go FtW local biz!

 

Salsa Limon + Stir Crazy = :swg:

From Tillman's FB page.  Looks like Fort Worth Market + Table will have the same ownership as Tillman's...  Opening in October.

The wife and I went to Mash'd for dinner Saturday evening.  It was crowded so we sat on the patio, which was actually pretty pleasant.  One of the attractions was the gluten free menu which my wife needs (plus she's vegetarian/pescatarian, which makes gluten free tougher).  She had salmon with asparagus & kale & quinoa salad (not my cup of tea but she loved it) and I had ribs with mash'd potatoes (flavor was was great although consistency was a bit sticky) and coleslaw (which was very fresh).  The ribs were done to perfection and the sauce was great.

Interestingly I did a Facebook check-in with the picture above and Mash'd responded while we were still at the restaurant and welcomed us.  Very nice people, good service tasty food, and the cost was reasonable.

 

I would recommend it.

I use every excuse possible to stop by the Museo location. Could eat their breakfast tacos (barbacoa, chicken and steak for me) everyday. :swg:

 

Spoke to Milo last Friday about the new TCU location (on my way to Pizza Snob) which is much larger than Museo. Should be open Thursday.

Yes its right by Dutch's and Pizza Snob.  It is in the same spot that was occupied by Red Cactus and whatever replaced them.

I had no idea. Just had lunch there. It was great. Nice open atmosphere, Maine Root soda in the fountain, my only critique would be (and this shows my age) is that the music was insanely loud. (Get off my lawn.)

I frequently go to the Museo location and from my times there, it's a pretty laid-back, hipster-ish atmosphere. I don't think the music is too loud. 

Then again, I was born at the end of the Reagan administration, so I don't think I can relate. I don't even mind it...

Doesn't that leave Terra Mediterranean as the only "first generation" restaurant in the development that is still open for business? Let's not count In-N-Out because it is across the street and free standing.

Whether you classify it as a restaurant is debatable, but Sweet Sammies opened the same time as Terra/Brownstone/Bailey's Prime Plus and is still going strong (even with the Blue Bell outage).

I was aware that Sweet Sammies was one of the first places to open, but I don't really consider them a restaurant.  Don't get me wrong, I love their product. I could make a meal out of what they serve.

The wife and I tried Thirteen Pies.  It was okay but didn't knock our socks off.  We figured we'd give it a try because they have a gluten free option (my wife can no longer have gluten) and she said the GF pizza I make her at home is better (it looked like it was a pre-made crust which may be a necessity to get the occasional GF pizza out in a timely manner).  My pizza was decent but if I want that style of pizza I'd much rather go to Zio Carlo's Chimera Brewing Company.

Chimera's also got good vegan options for folks like me.  And it's a Fort Worth local biz.  So yeah, I am 100% on board with you on that.

She's gluten free and vegetarian.  Thirteen Pies had options for her.  The one she chose just wasn't very well executed.  I do favor the local angle, but my wife doesn't happen to be a fan of Zio's.  (I know, I don't get it either.)

I will always support a Fort Worth business over one based in another city.  Personally, I prefer Chimera over Thirteen Pies.  However, I do understand if your wife has her own preferences.

Trophy Ranch might do well of the three. The company plans to focus a bit more on food and their "Happier Hour" time will be extended and more. According to another write up I just read.

Not sure what they mean by "lost our lease", but one thing's for sure, we will be seeing something else in its place very soon.

I would like to note that my objection is not a moral one. I'm not usually one to turn my nose up at chains, but I don't see how something so cheesy and touristy is going to last long in an area that's largely driven by local traffic. In contrast, Austin's is on 6th Street and San Antonio's is 30 seconds away from what I would think is the focal point of the Riverwalk.

Are you referring just to the location being West Seventh?  As you know, Fort Worth has a Redneck Heaven Restaurant and a Twin Peaks, both on the city's far north side.  Whether it's these hangouts or this newcomer, the way I see it, it's a pleasure to ogle the pretty ladies, but you're really there for the food and drinks.

What about the church on Carroll Avenue; would this be something that they may object to?  Really, it seems to me that, being situated so near to the cultural district will become an issue, if similar themed businesses wish to crowd in.

 

I predict that there will be some outrage generated once the patrons go beyond ogling and start touching these cabaret dancers. Might it be better if they were located along the North Freeway corridor.

I had no idea that Eddie V.'s and Capital Grille were Darden concepts. In fairness, Red Lobster isn't anymore.

Probably not. I would think that would conflict with Fellowship's mainstream, come-as-you-are reputation. There's nothing they could do legally since it's unlikely Coyote Ugly would be classified as a sexually oriented business and the church is more than 1000 feet away.

Now this scenario is also extremely unlikely, but if there were declared a SOB, that location probably wouldn't cut it since they are prohibited within 1000 feet of the Cultural District (if I'm reading the ordinance correctly).

I looked inside this one last week.  As RD stated in another post, it's really nice to see all of the interesting rehabs of the older industrial buildings in the area, rather than demolition of everything and building new.

I'm not thrilled to hear about Coyote Ugly opening in the neighborhood. 

While I'm all for having a really energetic, lively nightlife, (especially more quality live music-focused venues such as Lola's)  I am concerned about the sheer number of bars opening in that section of the district east of University, north of Lancaster. 

 

What happens if one of those bar owners decides to be the really lively, boisterous bar?  The type of place that attracts guys who like to fight.  Those guys get thrown out of the bars and fight on the sidewalks. 

 

Then, the more particular restaurant and bar patrons start feeling the neighborhood is unsafe and the higher end restaurants and bars suffer.  Slowly the bars (all of whom are already open at that point) decide that they can only survive if they cater to the same, more boisterous, less particular, crowd and the neighborhood, in a few years, pivots to be a more down and dirty bar district. 

 

Why does this matter?  It repels both locals and visitors who won't tolerate places that feel unsafe at all.  It would really be a huge step back for the entire Cultural District and West 7th Street corridor. 

 

Is there any way to gracefully keep a lid on the behaviour and growth of bar licenses in that area?  Don't know what tools exist that dont unfairly punish the owners but that preserves the future for the Cultural District.  They don't have a Sundance Square police force to help FWPD or the people in red shirts power washing the sidewalks around there.

It will not become Deep Ellum if you are afraid that undesirables will ruin it for everyone.  Jeez, this isn't Dallas and Coyote Ugly isn't a place like the dance clubs in DE that ran people off.  Additionally, DE dance clubs would stay open till 3-4 am.  That led to bar fights, gang fights and people being robbed outside the dance clubs that supposedly did not sell liquor after 2pm.  But, you could get it anyway, along with many other illegal things that made the area extremely unsafe.   This isn't going to happen in FW.

Is this in the pre-approval stage or has it received final approval?  Do you think that there may be a public comment period for which there will be some serious vetting?

The Pour House was exactly this type of place basically since it moved to W 7th, and it didn't seem to hurt the overall area.  People just stopped going there (which is why they re-branded it recently).
