Get Your Southern Fixe in Fort Worth

fixe.jpgby Trey Moran

Chef James Robert and Co-Owner Keith House have brought their popular Austin based Fixe Southern House to The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth.  Chef Robert has taken on the task of reimagining southern favorites and staples. The menu is based on his family recipes and his experiences growing up in Louisiana. There are touches of old southern charm mixed in with a modern look and feel throughout the restaurant.

In the middle of the main room is a wide beam, pergola type structure draped with strings of lights giving it a back yard type feel. You can watch the magic happen in the large open kitchen from just about any seat in the house.  On the night we visited the background music was a nice selection of classic southern rock that fit nicely with the mood.  The place has a modern but homey feel. It’s a very comfortable atmosphere. But then there is the food. Continue reading
