Located across from the Trinity River on White Settlement road sits a little place that serves up big flavors. Thurber Mingus has been open for roughly 2 months now and starting to find its place. They strive to use only local and Texas sourced products including a good selection of beer from most, if not all, of the local breweries. You will also find plenty of local beers and spirits used at the bar. All mixes and syrups are created in house.
Inside is laid back with a good sized bar. Outside has a very nice two level patio area and a garden area with picnic tables and chairs all made from reclaimed pallet wood and stage at the end of the garden for live music. The outdoor space is spacious and comfortable. Continue reading

Chef Grady Spears is about to become quite a busy man. Along with his new Horseshoe Hill Café he is also taking over operation of a little known spot in the Stockyards called “The Bull Ring”. Currently set up as an Ice Cream Parlor, Spears vision for it will be a private dining and special events destination serving his signature “Cowboy Cuisine”. He also mentioned hosting tasting events and pairing dinners for local breweries and wineries. The current mix of vintage Texas art will be replaced with antique and vintage cowboy art and the counters and freezers removed to maximize seating. There is no kitchen in this space but the chef already has ideas to deal with that issue. Continue reading

The dispute is over the building which has previously been leased. Revolver Taco was offered the opportunity to purchase the building, but instead declined.

I had heard and read about Pearl Snap Kolaches for months but had yet make it over there, so I went. They are located in the old “Tres Joses” location on White Settlement road not far from University Drive where the road makes the big “S” curve. There is not much in the way of signage but you can’t miss it.
Inside is setup to be like a comfortable coffee shop/lounge with couches, tables and chairs. The atmosphere is pretty laid back. Some traces of the Mexican restaurant are still visible, such as the wall sized bullfighter mural, which adds to the charm. As you enter, the counter is directly in front of you with all of the offerings displayed. A large chalk board menu is just above but it’s hard not to stare and salivate at what is laid out before you in the case. These really are not your traditional Czech kolaches and what sets these apart from the others I have tried is the dough. These are very light and slightly yeasty. Imagine a Hawaiian sweet roll with a little more density. Continue reading

The brunch menu as the Little Red Wasp in Fort Worth is pretty crave worthy. The cheddar chicken biscuit is tops in its game with a huge plateful sized slab of chicken sandwiched between that ethereal biscuit that is near lighter than air. It gives us all reason to make the drive to the downtown Fort Worth restaurant. The chilaquiles are also tops in their game. But what makes us truly lose control is the Benedict. Continue reading
