The article talks about the closing of Delaney's and Mac's, the uncertainty at Brownstone, and the big success at Chuy's, Gloria's, and other establishments.

The only thing keeping that restaurant open is the chef's name---and it appears that fade is wearing off.

Short article about the "patriarch of local fine dining" in Fort Worth, Walter Kaufmann of the Old Swiss House:
The interview apparently took place at the Fort Worth Food and Wine Festival this weekend:

Dropped in at R.J. Gator's last night and noticed an added "Liquor Tax" on the tab that the waiter couldn't really explain. Is this a new tax on liquor served in restaurants?

I am not aware of a liquor tax, but I also don't drink alcohol.

Well, I might have to join you John if the prices keep going up.

There's always been a tax, but it was the restaurant that was taxed and not the consumer.
The legislature changed the accounting in the last session. http://abclocal.go.c...ocal&id=9190012
From what I've seen most places haven't reduced the price by the amount of tax they are now not paying and have simply added the tax on. By doing this they are making a few more cents per drink.

Awesome. Can't wait for that to open. We ate at the one in Destin, FL a few years ago on vacation.

Minor news, but The Egg and I in Ridglea is rebranding. Next week they will be called "First Watch." They will have a new menu (still classic breakfast with some interesting twists). Apparently First Watch bought out all of Egg and I a year ago, and has been slowly changing all the restaurants over. They just got to Texas.
If you stop by there between now and next weekend, you can pick up a new menu which has a 20% off coupon good for the first month of operation as First Watch.

Thanks for the tip. My office is just down the street.

I have only been there a few times, and I thought it was pretty good, but a little more expensive than similar places.
