Eats Beat: Crockett Row Food Hall opens in Fort Worth
Hey, Bud! You spoke to our group this week and said you had three dining tips. I never got the third.
—Sammy, Fort Worth
That’s because I forgot. Here’s No. 3: Save money at steakhouses by dining late in the afternoon. It’s much cheaper to go somewhere like Capital Grille or Del Frisco’s Grille at 3:45 p.m. and order off the lunch menu. (That even applies some places on weekends.)
Hey, Bud! Wait — what were tips Nos. 1 and 2?
—Everybody besides Sammy
No. 1 is to beat the lines in crowded restaurants like Heim Barbecue or Joe T. Garcia’s by going the day after a major night event — the day after the Super Bowl, Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s, July 4, Halloween. (No. 2? That’s to look for early-bird specials like the $27.50 midweek early dinner at Paris 7th.)
Hey, Bud! Thanks for coming to our group. What was the off-the-beaten-path seafood restaurant you mentioned?
—Matt, Fort Worth
Tributary Cafe is a good reason to find Race Street, just for the okra salad alone. While you’re on Race Street, look north on Sylvania Avenue and make a note to come back to Enchiladas Ole.
