When Ned Grace opened his first Capital Grille in Providence R.I., in 1990, his goal was to have a presence in every capital city. The successful chain now boasts 49 restaurants nationwide.
Not one to shy away from the competition, Capital Grille boldly planted its newest namesake right across the street from Ruth’s Chris in downtown last May. Forget about Burger Wars; this could shape up to be a sirloin steak smackdown.
Fort Worth residents are notably passionate about their...

This former Eastman Texaco station, which first opened back in 1927 on the River Crest end of Camp Bowie, has been transformed into a sleek, yet inviting spot to socialize, snack and sip a glass of wine with friends.
Owners Joe Berry and his nephew Tim Berry OVERHAULED A dilapidated service station before opening in 2008. They gave Winslow's Wine Cafe a warm, lodge-like feel with exposed roof trusses overhead. Your eye is naturally drawn toward the back where the brick oven is always aflame.
On the night...

At Thai Tina's, Tina and her husband, Jay Jennings, are the heart and soul of the place. They not only pay attention to the quality of the food, but they also have a real passion for the people they serve.
Tina is almost maternal, learning the names, favorite dishes and even the life stories of her regular customers. Her enthusiasm is contagious. I think she would make a fabulous motivational speaker.
Tina began with a place in Flower Mound back in 1999. When it caught on, Tina continued moving up...

Then it became apparent that the lovely tree-lined property and outdoor terrace provided a perfect...

Like some other restaurants, Jakes Hamburgers has a typical style of waitress. She is usually a well-trained, hard-working, college-aged gal in a tank top and low-rise jeans. They just seem to add to the ambience of this popular sports bar-themed burger
by Courtney Dabney
The other thing Jakes is most known for is its poppy seed crusted bun. The seeds add that extra crunch to the array of tasty burgers. Everyone is apparently not as fond of these buns as I am, and, thanks to suggestions by customers, Jakes began offering a non-poppy seed version...
