With Greek specialties, live jazz on Sundays and grotto-style dining, Jazz Café on Magnolia Street maintains a loyal crowd.

| photography by Alex Lepe | It had been years since I stepped foot in the Jazz Café. This unpretentious lunch spot is frozen in time like the ruins of ancient Greece. Parking was a little tricky, and unless you know where to look, the front door is somewhat hidden just beyond a courtyard...

Wild Salsa spices up One City Place in downtown Fort Worth with imaginative dinner and specialty margarita menus.

Long-time Fort Worthians know to hit up Ol’ South or Vickery Café for a classic, home-style meal, but for residents in Near Southside, Old Neighborhood Grill has been an enduring favorite for nearly two decades.

Long before Esperanza’s, Chadra Mezza and WineHaus joined Park Place’s restaurant row, Peter Schroder opened the doors of his little neighborhood diner, south of the medical district in Berkeley Place. Old Neighborhood Grill (ONG) has a quaint charm that is easy to love. From its...

Avanti’s second location brings a lot of the same menu but a much different atmosphere.

One Haute Hoagie

| photography by Alex Lepe | Sandwiched between a beauty product supplier and embroidery shop, Dagwoods’ understated storefront is easy to miss, but its local craft beers and upscale sandwich offerings are definitely worth a trip off the beaten path. Located on the outskirts of Ridgmar Mall...

| photography by Alex Lepe | Yes, enchiladas, tacos and combo platters heavy with rice and beans are on the menu, but Benito’s is not a Tex-Mex restaurant. Here queso is real cheese and not a processed sauce, and the chile con carne is not poured from a can. Rich, deep red mole rojo and...

With its prime location and solid menu of Middle Eastern favorites, Terra Mediterranean Grill has established itself as a fixture in West 7th’s restaurant corridor.

There’s no guarantee that a restaurant, no matter how beloved, will survive its first year, particularly in the highly competitive West 7th area. However, Adam and Jalal Chanaa are no strangers to the business, and they know how to create food concepts with staying power. More than two...

| photography by Alex Lepe | The clientele is diverse at Restaurante El Patrón, as indicated by the varied vehicles in the parking lot, from the sleek Porsche Cayenne to a ladder-adorned work truck, witnessed on our lunch visit. The casual Mexican dive in Fort Worth’s Northside...
