Genghis Grill

Genghis Grill : Table 4

Genghis Grill-The Mongolian Stir Fry, is a build your own bowl, fast casual, Asian stir-fry concept. The atmosphere is colorful, lively, and a lot of fun! It’s actually not a cuisine, but an INTERACTIVE style of exhibition cooking modeled after a centuries-old legend. According to this legend, 12th century mongol warriors, led by the mighty warrior GENGHIS KHAN, heated their shields over open fires to grill food in the fields of battle!

LightCatcher Entry Sign

LightCatcher Winery

Bistro LightCatcher : Table 5

“You’ll have one of those “It doesn’t get any better than this” moments sitting on LightCatcher’s lovely, breezy patio overlooking lush gardens, listening to live jazz (if it’s the first or third Sunday of the month), sipping a glass of one of LightCatcher’s award-winning wines, and dining on sublime bistro dishes. The small menu changes frequently to take advantage of the best fresh, local produce, but in owner-winemaker-chef Caris Turpen’s hand you’ll never go wrong, whether she’s dreamed up an asparagus-ricotta tart, smoked duck with fig jam and pearl couscous, or an orange panna cotta with dark-chocolate sauce. How have you never heard of this marvelous place? Well, mostly because you actually have to drive through two other towns to get there. But for lovely scenery, amazing food and wine, and sometimes even legendary jazzbo Johnny Case on the ivories, LightCatcher is well worth the trip.”

Swiss Pastry Shop : Table 8

“Until a couple days ago, I thought this was just a bakery. Turns out, that’s just part of their business. Don’t get me wrong. I didn’t think it was just any bakery. I knew it was The Swiss Pastry Shop. But I thought they just served cakes and cookies. Apparently they also serve huge, delicious breakfasts, at low prices.” ~Fort Worth Hole in the Wall

Hedary's Medeterranean Restaurant

Hedary's Medeterranean Restaurant

Hedary’s Mediterranean Restaurant : Table 9

“Fort Worth totally lucked out when the Hedary family fled war-torn Beirut for the U.S. and in 1976 decided to open Hedary’s Pizza on the North Side, only because they thought ‘pizza’ meant ‘restaurant.’ To this day they’re still offering up their own version of pizza, along with family ambiance and in-your-face, old country cooking. Whether you’re ordering from the menu or diving into the Sunday brunch, Hedary’s covers all your Middle Eastern staples – the freshest tabbouleh, tangy hummus and batinjan mtabaal (aka baba ganouj), stuffed lamb-and-rice grape leaves with the requisite side of minty laban for dipping, kibbi, kabobs, et al – but there’s also the garlicky-lemony chicken (frarej), fatush (crispy green salad with zingy dressing, sumac and toasted pita bread), sujuk (spicy grilled beef sausage), and if you call ahead, kibbi nayyi – Lebanon’s answer to steak tartar, only much more kick-ass.” ~Anonymous
