Decked in bright hues of the sun, Melt Ice Creams is a nice little dessert corner on Rosedale Avenue. Owned and operated by Kari Crowe, the Southside sweet spot serves delicious, homemade ice creams that will have you coming back for more. This is clearly not your run-of-the-mill ice cream franchise, there are less than ten flavors - the focus is more on quality than quantity - and Melt manages that very well indeed. Most popular choices here include Cup of Texas, a coffee flavored one and Sweet Bees, a honey-focused ice cream. Affordable prices, fresh, delightful flavors and the great little shop keeps bringing in the locals by droves at Melt.
Located in the former Texas and Pacific Railway headquarters building, T&P Tavern has been transformed from a news stand and diner to one of downtown Fort Worth's most popular destinations. In its original glory days, such notable guests as politicians and The King himself, Elvis Presley, stopped by this restaurant, but today it is a favorite of the everyman, offering a balance of sophisticated martinis and outdoor games, such as bean bag toss and giant Jenga.
Located within the Modern Art Museum, the cuisine at this cafe is about as 'modern' as it comes. Apple wine-braised brisket accompanied by potato pancakes and roasted garlic pudding, or fettucini with roasted shallots and wild mushrooms in a vidalia onion broth are just two of the possible entrees to select. Cafe Modern taps into Asian cuisine too with their tempura Portobello spring rolls, lightly fried and served with a side of soba noodles and vegetables. The jumbo lump crab cake is exquisite and topped with sun-dried tomato. An intriguing dessert is basil-scented crème brûlée served with pomegranate jelly.
With a typical Texas cowboy theme, this is a popular local joint that was named in honor of bull riding champion, Samuel Thomas Privett. The signature Anita Rita margarita is out of the ordinary and the small batch, 'Buffalo Butt Beer' is handcrafted and slightly hazy since it doesn't go through pasteurization or micro filtering. The food is also appetizing and fresh. Bookmark this place as a must visit!
