Patrizio Fort Worth Closed *Update

patrizioby Steven Doyle

We learned this weekend that the Fort Worth version of Patrizio shuttered after being locked out by the landlord. Owner Ed Bailey was in the midst of renegotiating the lease when they received word Saturday that the building had been locked up for non-payment of rent.

The Fort Worth store was located at 2932 Crockett Street. This closure does not affect any other Patrizio locations.

*Update: The Fort Worth location is back in business.

Holy Cow! Really, Cow, At Rodeo Goat

rodeo goat3by Angela Hopkins

Rodeo Goat is an emerging hot spot in Fort Worth, your new favorite ice house is tucked in the midst of all new construction in the West 7th area. Unlock the cage and cruise through the cattle door dividing the parking lot and sand pebbled covered patio. Giggle at the indoor rodeo stall (used for private parties if requested). Cozy up to family style seating with bar tables accompanying tall cushioned bar stools; you know a little class spruces up the place? I liked it already.

Calling them just burgers does not seem to do this place justice. With components and toppings such as Fresno-aioli, hatch chilies, green olive tapenade, pineapple and plantains, a variety of condiments such as herb, roasted red pepper and a smoky, orange-mayo;,all made fresh in house daily along with the hand punched fries and or chips. Wowzzza.   Continue reading

A Good Fortune: Shinjuku Station

shin2by Angela Hopkins

Shinjuku Station is like falling in love and only you know what your heart feels but you cannot do it justice with words, but I will try.  The décor is deconstructed and trendy.  An exposed brick and narrowed black and white photography filled wall, Japanese characters on curtains dividing the kitchen from the bar, an old wide bench that sits four, about 10 tables set up back to back along the brick wall and a sushi bar for eight or so hugging around the back side of the kitchen.  Whether you wait for a bit or are seated as you walk in, begin with an “Overflow of good fortune.”   Continue reading
