My guess for the restaurants would be that most of them cater to the higher end market.  You have all the apartments, which based on my coworkers, I'm going to go ahead and assume are filled with primarily young professionals starting out.  They can't afford to eat at a Waters or Tillmans every night, or even once a week.


That leaves the restaurants relying on people coming in to support them and keep them going.  With the restaurants that are there, my wife and I go out to eat in W7th, maybe once every couple of months, and we don't bring our kid.


The rent is probably too high for it, but I would love to see some new restaurants that cater to the middle of the road crowd that isn't a taco place.  I would bet something that is in the price range of a Chili's would do well.


I would love to be able to go to a new mom and pop restaurant that focuses on doing decent food at a reasonable price.  Maybe that price range is only available to chain's due to scale.

There are also some comments in the reddit thread about Museum Place.

They are a bit concerning.

I think they are talking about weekend nights. The area cannot accommodate parking on the weekends. It is only going to get worse once America Gardens, Kung Fu Saloon and whatever is going to replace the land Salsa Limon was on gets built out.

I hate to beat a dead horse... but hey city council, work out a deal with the FWISD and the Farrington Field parking lot. It's not that difficult.

Even during Football season the lot is 2/3rds empty.
