Where to eat in Fort Worth : Restaurants offering to-go and meals for delivery : Downtown, Foundry District, Northside

Foodie friends, we are in unprecedented times right now and we are all dealing with the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. Every aspect of our lives is currently impacted as we have all been advised to stay home to flatten the curve of this devastating virus.

Every industry has been hit hard by the pandemic, especially the restaurant industry. Part of what makes Fort Worth so special are the small and unique restaurants that we love to frequent and discover. Now more than ever is the time to support local businesses, especially restaurants.

Restaurants and other food and beverage establishments have quickly shifted their business model to an entirely a curbside pick-up or delivery model. Even fine dining restaurants have pivoted to affordable family-style meals.

Chances are your favorite restaurant that you would normally visit has adopted this model. Also, chances are that you are doing more home-cooking than usual and you need a break. So, continue to support your favorite restaurants by ordering to-go meals from them. If you are looking for other restaurants to support, here’s a list.

Please note things change on a day-by-day basis for many of the restaurants, so show patience with them as they adapt. Picking up the food with contact-less curbside service ensures that restaurants don’t loose their slim margins paying a delivery service. (I’ve also included Venmo information for places that are collecting extra funds to support their furloughed staff).

Stay safe y’all. Stay home and wash your hands. We are in this together and please continue to support the small businesses that need you now more than ever. Look here for the Near Southside, South Main Village version. Westside and River District version.

Hot Box Biscuit Club

Biscuits and brunch anyone? If you answered with a heck yeah, please read on! We all know brunch is quite possibly the most perfect meal combining the best of breakfast and lunch. We now have a stellar option with the opening of Hot Box Biscuit Club. The best part is it’s not just for weekend brunching but for weekday indulging as well.

Hot Box Biscuit Club
Hot Box Biscuit Club on South Main

Hot Box Biscuit Club began as the hottest food pop-up in town and is now a brick-and-mortar space in a spot that couldn’t be more perfect on South Main. They are in good company with places like The Bearded Lady, Four Sisters and Game Theory who’ve also staked their claim on the block. Local pastry Chef Sarah Hooten joined culinary forces with Chef Matt Mobley to form Hot Box Biscuit Club as a series of pop-ups that happened in different locations in Fort Worth two and a half years ago.

Word of mouth about their pop-ups spread quickly. Hooten and Mobley focused on their favorite style of food which is Southern cooking. They bring their sense of fun to all the dishes which is clear in the execution and in small details like what the dishes are named. Hip hop and 90’s throwback references are a common occurrence on their menus and t-shirts. This all adds to the fun and charm of the Hot Box Biscuit Club experience.

Hot Box Biscuit Club

Thanks to loyal and repeat diners who spread the word, their email list grew. That’s how the pair let the public know about their events which were selling out 300 seats in a matter of minutes.

Now, we no longer have to rely on our ability to quickly reply to their emails for a coveted seat at one of their pop-ups. This week they open for business on the ever growing stretch of South Main. Yes, you can get your biscuit fix just about any day of the week now!

Interior Hot Box Biscuit Club

The light filled space overlooking South Main couldn’t be better suited for their casual and fun cuisine. Exposed brick walls and red accents add warmth, charm and coziness to the space.

When you arrive, you place your order at the front and then you are given a Selena (#bidibidibombom) themed buzzer. You pick up your food at the kitchen counter after your buzzer alerts you. While you wait you can serve yourself your non-alcoholic drinks and grab your set-ups. Boozy brunchers can grab their drinks from the bar.

Their menu is a greatest hits of all the dishes that built their buzz in Fort Worth. It’s divided into different sections: Bigs, smalls, sides and extras. Bigs are their sizeable biscuit sandwiches that include the Paris Hilton which is a magical combo of sugar cane brined crispy fried chicken, Louisiana hot sauce and honey whipped butter on a buttermilk biscuit.

Biscuit Sandwich at Hot Box Biscuit Club
The Paris Hilton

The smalls are appetizer-sized portions and include their cheeky take on a Southern classic, Cornflake Fried Green Tomatoes. The tomatoes in this traditional dish are fried and pickle-brined for a slightly sour effect that almost makes it feel like you’re eating a large fried pickle chip. The over the top toppings are literally over the top. Scoops of Vernon’s pimento cheese, a sprinkling of corn flakes and drizzles of ranch dust and dip complete the tasty mix of flavors and textures.

Other notable Smalls include the “Devil Went down to Georgia” which is a deviled egg with a sour cream based filling topped with notorious P.I.G (their house-cured bacon), pickled jalapeno and ranch dust. Also on the smalls menu are the Puff Daddies, which are their house fried chicharrones. These crunchy snacks are the perfect accompaniment to one of their delicious cocktails.

The Devil Went down to Georgia – Deviled Eggs
Puff Daddies – Chicharrones

Sides include mac and cheese, collard greens, grits, fried okra and several other items. The menu items will change so you will always have different options and a different experience. The stewed green beans I tried just completely floored me! The description says “Like grandmas…but maybe better”.

Stewed Green Beans

While my grandma was more of a homemade tortilla maker, my husbands family has Southern roots so I’ve tasted my fair share of green beans. The Hot Box version has the perfect melt in your mouth texture without being overly mushy and the seasonings really just take it up a notch. But sssshhh, I can’t let the Southern part of my family know.

And please, save room for dessert. Or make room, because… pie. With tempting options like Mary’s Chocolate Cream Pie and Sarah’s Buttermilk Pie you will not want to pass up the decadent pie selections.

Chef Sarah Hooten and Chef Matt Mobley

Casual, comforting Southern food gets the brunch treatment at Hot Box Biscuit Club. Not only that, but at the hands of two creative and talented chefs using high quality ingredients and making just about everything from scratch, diners are in for a delicious experience. When I spoke to the chefs they said they wanted to make affordable and approachable food so that you don’t just visit for special occasions but that you visit frequently. They’ve created crave-worthy food with soul that will not only draw me back often but many more folks as well.

Cowtown Farmers Market

Eat Local. It’s a goal to aspire to. How do you make it happen? In Fort Worth we are fortunate enough to have a weekly producer-only farmers market that’s been around for the last 28 years. The Cowtown Farmers Market takes place every Saturday and sometimes Wednesdays at the Weatherford Traffic Circle on the westside of Fort Worth.

Cowtown Farmers Market Fort Worth
Cowtown Farmers Market

Fort Worth’s original Producer only market

Cowtown Farmers Market is Fort Worth’s original producer-only market. That means they only allow vendors to sell items that are either grown, raised or produced within 150 miles of Fort Worth. That’s pretty darn local. In other words, when you think of a traditional Farmers market this it. Farm to table dining, as long as you cook it, is in reach.

Cowtown Farmers Market

If quality ingredients along with supporting the local economy matter to you the farmers market is a great way to put those values into action.

Cowtown Farmers Market

If you frequent the market enough you’ll learn what’s in season. Most likely you’ll learn from the farmer who’s grown it and can tell you all about what you’re buying. For instance, there’s no better tomato or peach than the ones that are found at the Farmers Market. Seriously!

Cowtown Farmers Market

Vendors at Cowtown Farmers Market

In addition the freshest produce possible, there’s many local vendors to support as well. Cheese, coffee, soaps, honey, fresh cut flowers, bread, soup, tamales are just a few of the other items you’ll find at the Cowtown Farmers Market. Some of the vendors have a presence at the Clearfork Farmers Markets as well. It’s easy to get cooking inspiration from all the great ingredients.

Taste Project : Fall Menu

Dining with dignity. What does that mean? For most of us in Fort Worth, it’s what we are accustomed to. We buy our weekly groceries and prepare them for ourselves or our family. Or we go out to eat at a restaurant or save up to eat out for a special occasion. At Taste Project diners pay what they can. It’s Fort Worth’s first non-profit restaurant and pay what you can restaurant.

At Taste Project in the Near Southside, they acknowledge that not everyone knows where their next meal will come from. According to their website, “…in Tarrant County, 36 percent of this food insecure population live above the poverty level and receive no government help”.

Taste Project Mission

Taste Project seeks to address hunger issues from a community perspective with their non-profit restaurant model. They do this by providing a meal for whoever walks in. Unlike any other restaurant in Fort Worth there are no prices on the menu. In this case at Taste Project you either pay what you can afford, pay what you would typically pay, or pay what what you would normally pay plus a little extra.

Chef Jeff Williams at Taste Project
Chef Jeff Williams at Taste Project

A small staff runs the restaurant with a group of volunteers. In the kitchen, you’ll find Chef Jeff Williams who is also the founder and President of Taste Project. He prepares meals that are healthy, hearty and delicious.

Fall Lunch and Brunch Menu

I got a preview of their Fall Lunch and Brunch menu recently. Their lunch menu focuses on small plates and sandwiches. The turkey burger provided hints of fall flavors with the addition of mushrooms and seasoning to the patty. The soft bun and pomegranate aioli bring the burger together nicely. The Reuben sandwich features a delicious house-made corned beef and sauerkraut filling that complements the toasted rye bread beautifully.

Reuben Sandwich at Taste Project

Additionally, they have a nice selection of brunch dishes served on Saturdays and Sundays from 10AM – 2PM that include French toast, soups, salads and sandwiches. One of the dishes I sample, was the huevos verdes. These small tostadas have flavorful Southwestern influence toppings that include green salsa and queso fresco. The egg, bacon and sweet potato toppings contrast nicely with the crispy tostada shells.

Huevos Verdes at Taste Project

The well thought out menu options are appealing for a variety of consumers in a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere. The pay what you can model may be new to some, but it’s not complicated. Pay what you can and if you can afford a little more go ahead and do that. It’s not often you can enjoy a meal and pay it forward. Taste Project, let’s you do just that.

Taste Project is also hosting a variety of celebrity servers in acknowledgement of Hunger Action Month. Check out their Facebook page to see when the Fort Worth Firefighters or our own mayor, Betsy Price, will be serving.

Rise Restaurant Week-Food event Fort Worth

It’s the biggest food event of the year for food lovers in Fort Worth. DFW Restaurant Week provides diners the chance to try a three course meal at over 150 participating restaurants in the DFW area for $39 or $49.

Participating restaurants donate twenty percent of each meal to either the North Texas Food Bank or the Lena Pope Home. Over the years, some restaurants embraced the concept and extend their Restaurant Week menus to the whole month. Restaurant Week happens from August 5-11. Several restaurants will continue their special three course menus through August 18, 25 or even Labor Day. It’s best to check the official DFW Restaurant list website to confirm these dates. Some restaurants even offer a lunch option for $25.

To enjoy these special menus, reservations must be made in advance and you must indicate that you are reserving for the special Restaurant Week menu. The advantage to Restaurant Week is that you can eat at places like Grace, Rise (pictured above), Waters or Capital Grille for less than it would normally cost.

Cicada Pop-up offers an exceptional food experience in Fort Worth. This August they host their seasonal 12-course tasting menu at Locavore. The dinner begins with a welcoming glass of champagne or a cocktail, and ends with a little gift to take home with you. I recently attended a dinner and it’s a unique experience. Don’t let the amount of courses scare you off, these are more like small tastings. Chef Cody Penton carefully crafts every single element of each thoughtfully created dish. Despite the fine dining level of food, the atmosphere at Locavore is cozy and comfortable with guests seated along a long table. BYOB.

The Modern Fort Worth

Craft beer contains just as many nuances as wine and it only makes sense that it cross over into the fine dining arena. Don’t miss this unique food and beer event! Chefs regularly host wine dinners to feature a particular winery and in this case a brewery serves as the inspiration for a late summer six course meal. Chef Denise Shavandy draws from a range of cuisines for this inspired menu that includes a seafood tostada, chorizo burger slider and a Greek spiced lamb chop. 

Just announced that local, lovable personality, Tony Green, host of Fort Worth’s premiere live internet talk show will be part of the event. They will be filming their first culinary experience there. If you haven’t met Tony yet, get ready to smile.
