Heard it here first....Tacodeli coming to Tanglewood [area].  (is this really Tanglewood on the west side of Hulen?)
 


Le Margot, also on the west side of Hulen, is typically described as Tanglewood: https://amp.star-tel...e261747312.html

On our weekly breakfast ride last Saturday, we went to F1 Smokehouse (University & 5th in the old Austin City Tacos location).  I would highly recommend it.  The food was quite good.  I got The Big Bad Wolf, an over-the-top breakfast sandwich with everything you can think of.  The other popular breakfast dish was the chilaquiles. 

 

The format of F1 is not like most BBQ joints where you order from the counter, get your own drinks, etc.  Rather, it's full service.  The manager said the owners knew some people like BBQ but want a more upscale service model.  The decor is bright and clean with nostalgic Texas/western/cowboy decor.  On the video Lone Ranger reruns were playing.  The music was played at just the right volume:  You could hear it but didn't have to talk over it, and it was a great mix of old and new C&W music (Johnny Cash, Willie, but also modern artists that had a classic western sound to them).  The prices were typical for the breakfast places we go, with options from about $6 to $15, but with an important distinction:  Coffee is free with a meal.  These days a plain cuppa Joe can be $3 and up, especially if they give refills.  So that adds to the value.

 

Looks like it would be good for lunch and dinner too.

Another Race Street loss, Neutral Ground Brewing: https://fortworth.cu...rewing-closing/

A friend who lives near there said there are several new places opening soon, maybe not so much loss as turnover.

Jon's Subs on West 7th and Lamar has a notice on its front door saying they have been locked out for failure to pay rent.  Must have just happened because there were full sandwich trays in their refrigerated case.  

 

Not really surprised.  It never looked very crowded when I walked by.  The time we went, the sub bread fell apart as we were eating our sandwiches.  I'm guessing inferior bread in a sub shop is not a helpful element of the business model.  

 

I don't know what this means, but the "For Lease" signs are down in the Jon's Subs space and the lights were on.  Didn't see anyone in there today, though.

 

Jon’s Subs reopens April 15th.  I hope they do well!

I tried the Ramen place there before their grand opening a couple of weeks back... it was good.  It's byob.

Anyone know any restaurants that begin with the letter X?  This A-to-Z might get tough.

Do the rules allow going to Terrell?  Could make for a long ride home if the food is bad.

Funky Picnic off South Main announced they are closing April 27th. Sad to see them go. With the two new apartments and new hotel so close, I hope another restaurant will take over the spot shortly. Funky Picnic was certainly a trailblazer for this restored area.

My last time to eat there was probably around 8 years ago and, while the food was good, it had declined a lot.  There's still a Yucatan on the riverwalk at Bricktown in OKC.  Not sure how closely related it is to the original, but the menu is at least similar.

Totally agree.  I think that places like this usually fail because they don't have repeat customers.  I went twice and thought it was average at best and didn't have me hankering for more.

I know they changed their menu within the last few years. There was an article IIRC the new chef threw shade at the old menu. I liked the older menu better.

Running a restaurant and brewery seems tough and expensive. Maybe they crawled so a new spot could run. Why not a brew pub that serves Hopfusions beer. Also, they were competing with Bearded Lady in similar food and on beer with Hopfusion. That’s a tough spot to be in.

If this spot had opened sooner, would have been nice to see The Tropic Lady here.
