The panna cotta is pink this week at Max’s Wine Dive. But that’s not the only dish “going pink” to help raise money for Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth.
About 30 restaurants in Fort Worth and Southlake will donate 5 percent or more of sales for breast cancer awareness.
Max’s will donate more — 15 percent of every $45 — from the “Dine Out for the Cure” dinner through Saturday, featuring pumpkin soup, a pork chop with Gorgonzola cream and a berry panna cotta.
A Capital Grille $45 special, a revival of the Restaurant Week menu, ends Wednesday night. Meanwhile, a Ruth’s Chris Steak House special continues through Oct. 15.

Mexico in Southlake
The new Un Rincón de México in Southlake is a complete surprise.
A former brick-oven pizza restaurant has been turned into a Mexico City-style street taqueria with taco-style pizzas, all with some of the best handmade salsas on the boulevard.
The featured pizza is pork pastor with pineapple, but the chicken, chorizo or pork asado make great pizzas, too, either with salsa and pico or mozzarella and marinara. Pizza is served Wednesday through Sunday nights ($10-$14).
Menudo and pozole also are served weekends. The ambiance is genuine, too: loud norteñas and TV soccer.
Un Rincón opens at 10 a.m. for lunch and dinner daily except Tuesdays; in Cornerstone Plaza, 2777 E. Southlake Blvd. unrincondemexico.com.
