So Fort Worth is getting a Cane Rosso....and a Velvet Taco :)

This is big news for Fort Worthians as I'm sure most of you know by now.

We needed a good Neapolitan style pizza place, and as just important a unique late night taco joint! Both should be open in a month I think.

I haven't tried either of them but have heard many many good things about both, but mainly Cane Rosso.

What are some of your favorite eats at these Dallas Legends?

  1. My favorite pizza at Cane Rosso (Deep Ellum) is the Regina Margherita with added hot soppressata.

      If you've had it, how's their pasta?

      Housemade, correct?

      1. re: burntcremebrulee

        A friend of mine always orders one of their house made pasta dishes. He raves about them. Especially the Carbonara.

        I like their Caesar salad too. With plenty of Italian, marinated white anchovies.

        But their pizza is the star attraction for me. I swear it's exactly as I've eaten in Naples and Southern Italy.

    2. At Cane Rosso, the crowd consensus favorite nearly every time I go is the Delia which has the bacon marmalade in lieu of red sauce. Another good, off menu, option is the Pinche de Julio which is a dessert pizza made with mascarpone, nutella, and vanilla bean.

        Ohhhh ya I forgot about that housemade bacon marmalade they put on a pizza!! I'll have to encourage a group of friends to go so we can sample different kinds of dishes, same goes with Velvet Taco.

        Thanks for y'alls reply!

      2. Regarding Velvet Taco. I find them very trendy and spendy. But don't get me wrong. They're excellent tacos. I especially like the Ahi tuna taco and fried oyster taco. $7.42 & $5.44.

        It appears the "hipster" crowd in Dallas has found a new home at the Velvet Taco on Henderson and 75.

          Yeah that's pretty pricey for taco, but I can't wait. I just found out that they even make their own tortillas, which is a wonderful addition for a delicious taco for me. Plus it sounds like they use quality ingredients so I'm up for that.

          I'm excited to try the pasta now, even though I do dine at Nonna Tata often. I wont have to worry about making reservations =P

            I found the pork tacos very good. Agree that it's not cheap. It is to tacos what a fancy fusion burger place is to regular burgers (except that cheap tacos, if you stay away from the godforsaken Jack in the Box or Taco Bell that is, are absolutely fresh and real, while cheap burgers virtually always smack of fast food).

            I assume the interior will be the same as Dallas. It's communal dining, plain wood, 'keep 'em moving' benches. Not a place to linger, but on Henderson there are lots of other places to do that. On 7th it may be slightly more challenging to just walk down the block to somewhere where you can get a great drink and linger, but it's certainly not a food desert.

            1. re: foiegras

              You hit the nail. It seems like the Hopdoddy of tacos. It's a big plus when a kitchen makes their own in-house vessel for the wonderful filling they crafted. It's not when you go to northside and getting the best tasting pastor or barbacoa filling in a crappy tortilla. Totally ruins it.

              I wonder if VT sources any of the their ingredients from local farmers? Has anyone heard of them mentioning that? I'm really big on supporting those kind of things. Keep the money in North Texas :)

              Do they sell alcohol?

              I might be mistaking, but don't they roast some of their meats in a spinning rotisserie??

              One more thing, how are the elotes, red velvet, roasted potatoes, and those supreme looking tater tots?

              I really hope that these restaurants will help inspire more of the better Dallas restaurants to venture off into the Fort Worth area, especially when they see how successful they'll be doing here. Us Fort Worth food enthusiast will support you guys all the way!
