Best picks in Downtown Fort Worth?
I am a local of Denton, TX and next Saturday my boyfriend and I are visiting Fort Worth for our anniversary. We're unfamiliar with the city, so I am wondering what is a great restaurant to get lunch or dinner in Downtown Fort Worth. We're also college students, so any place with the average plate costs $20+ is out of our price range.
A recommendation for a good Asian place would be appreciate too. Thanks!
If you are making a day of it. I would say start off at the Kimball Art Museum (free except exhibitions) walk across to The Modern (small fee), or walk across to the Museum of Science and History to the Omni Theater and watch a movie, then head down to the Botanical Gardens (free except Japanese Garden).
Piranha Killer Sushi has an outpost in Sundance Square.
I believe there is a Thai place over off Magnolia which is a fun area on the south side of Downtown. Junsuree Thai I haven't been but here is a menu. I doubt it could top Andaman in Denton (which just recently moved to the new entertainment district just east of Downtown Denton on Hickory).
Not sure if you are into Indian. This place is decent and better than Rasoi in Denton. Technically it is Asian!
Just not that much Asian food going on in Fort Worth. Lots of Asian eateries in Arlington (Vietnamese, Indian and Chinese) and Haltom City (Vietnamese)
For lunch I would try out the cheapskate lunch (as I did not spend over $20 for 2) is Panaderia El Progreso on Main and Long. Great Tacos! The pescado and puerco en adobo was quite tasty.
I would say a good bet would be Nona Tata, an Italian place that is a bit quirky on the hours but well worth it. Here is a blog that will give some dishes and pictures which always helps me. Highly suggest calling for the hours.
