Every DFW Restaurant Week is a big deal, with 35 of the best Tarrant County restaurants serving dinners at a discount and sharing the money with charity.
But this year, there’s an added attraction:
The new look at Bonnell’s.
The work isn’t finished, but Bonnell promised to reopen in time for DFW Restaurant Week Aug. 13-19, when $10 of each special dinner goes to the Fort Worth-based Lena Pope children’s charity.
Bonnell’s is among the restaurants extending the benefit deal another week, through Aug. 25.
The $49 menu features a choice of a beef tenderloin, quail-mushroom pasta, a veggie-goat cheese chile relleno or rabbit enchiladas, including sides and salad or roasted tomato-jalapeno soup.
The dessert is a choice of chocolate amaretto cake or tres leches creme brulee.
You’ll notice the new entrance, foyer and cowboyed-up bar, the preferred dining room for many customers.
Bonnell’s dining room is often gently described as understated. The new decor gives it a richer feel but keeps the room partitions that make it cozier.
(Lena Pope earns $10 of each $49 Restaurant Week dinner, $8 of each $39 dinner and $4 of each $20 lunch. For a full list of restaurants serving specials, some through Labor Day weekend, see dfwrestaurantweek.com.)
