Husbands birthday in Fort Worth

My husbands birthday is coming up and I wanted to take him somewhere nice. We live in Fort Worth and will be dropping our son off in Saginaw with his grandma so somewhere in Fort Worth or on the way to saginaw would be great since we plan on dropping him off, coming home for our first day alone since we had him, then going back to get him that night. We want to dress up a bit and go somewhere fun and maybe a bit romantic, but nothing to overly priced. We are very open to different types of food and are not big drinkers so drinks don't matter. Good food and atmosphere...

We usually go to Brix on dates....but maybe somewhere different.

  1. The FW topic comes up with some frequency, so if you search this board for "Ft. Worth" or "Fort Worth" you'll find many past rec's to peruse.

    Here are a few that keep coming up.

    Lanny's - upscale Mexican haute cuisine.
    Ellerbe's - new American, seasonal menu.
    Lonesome Dove - Urban Western, beef and game.
    Lambert's - Texas steak and seafood.

    The "Eat This Fort Worth" website can give you some other options, but I'll add this link for a number of new restaurants that have opened on Magnolia Street, just south of downtown. (Skip Benito's - not what your looking for

    Wherever you select, I'd be certain to call ahead about reservations.

    1. Not familiar with Brix ... you might try Lili's Bistro on Magnolia. The lobster tempura's really good ... The large plates are going to be big enough to share.

      1. We had a fantastic night at Eddie V's. The service was out of this world and it followed second to the food. My husband said he would drive back from Dallas to eat there again, and then they said the Dallas location was opening the following week. Whereever you go, enjoy yourself!
