While not a new restaurant by any means, Tokyo Café has undergone a rebirth since a fire wiped out much of the structure and forced a two year closure. Chef Kevin Martinez brings his take on traditional Asian fare with killer ramen and a full sushi bar along with beef, chicken and pork bowls, wok fried noodles and entrée’s such as bone in short ribs with Japanese risotto and Tokyo Fish & Chips (tempura red snapper with yuzu tarter sauce).  Locals rave about the ramen.   Continue reading

No Valentine’s Day is complete without a visit to Dude, Sweet Chocolate, the bad boy of chocolatiers in Dallas run by chef Katherine Clapner.  You may have seen Clapner recently on Beat Bobby Flay, where she indeed did beat the Flay handily using her cheffy wiles to out chef the chef.

Rocking In The New Year – 80’s Style

img_6629by Trey Moran

While pondering the various places to spend New Years Eve this year one of the first places I thought of was Studio 80 in downtown Fort Worth.  I’m glad I called when I did because they were just about booked for reserved tables.  The table fee was extremely reasonable for 4 seats with party favors (hats, glasses, horns, etc.) and a full size bottle of champagne.  A good time was certain to be had by all.

Studio 80 previously existed in the Cultural District off of University Drive and shared a parking lot with The Grotto. After shutting down to remodel, a fire and landlord issues the club relocated to the spot previously occupied by Vee Lounge off Taylor Street downtown. The new club has much more square footage, better video screens, a better sound system and is actually two clubs in one.   Continue reading
