Local Lifestyle - Living in Fort Worth


Fort Worth is known to be one of the friendliest cities in Texas. It offers big-city amenities while retaining its Southern charm and small-town appeal. The food scene is top-notch, so it gives the area a little of a cosmopolitan vibe. The western sister city of the metroplex famously gathers at Dickies Arena for the annual Forth Worth Stockshow and Rodeo and watches world-class entertainers in the Rodeo’s off-season. Throughout the year, Fort Worth is full of things to see and do.

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping in Fort Worth


Fort Worth is best known for Southern fare, but it does offer a variety of cuisine.
Gemelle serves American-Italian fare in a bright, colorful setting. They have an extensive menu of hearty breakfast plates, pizza, pasta, and daily specials for lunch and dinner. With a full bar, a garden patio, and weekly live music, it’s a great place for social hours and weekend brunches.

For Tex-Mex fare, Joe T. Garcia’s has been a landmark since its opening in 1935. This small mom-and-pop eatery started with 16 seats and has grown into a restaurant with a pool, patios, cabana, and dining areas that can seat 1,000 altogether. What hasn’t changed is their down-to-earth food inspired by classic Mexican favorites. 

Jon Bonnell is Fort Worth’s Most Beloved Chef, and multiple restaurants throughout the city bear his mark. Waters Restaurant is a refined seafood restaurant downtown. Buffalo Brothers is the perfect pub for game day, with a wide variety of drinks on tap and incredible bar food to snack on while you cheer on your favorite team. Finally, Bonnell's Fine Texas Cuisine is an upscale, rustic restaurant serving unique southwestern takes on local game and other Texas favorites.

Dining at Ellerbe Fine Foods is an unforgettable experience. Set in a former gas station, they specialize in farm-to-table Southern-style dishes. Executive chef Molly McCook was a James Beard Foundation Semi-Finalist and brings the region’s best food into seasonal offerings like Louisiana redfish, duck confit, veal Bolognese, and New Orleans barbeque. The white tablecloth and rustic setting add to the upscale atmosphere. 

For shopping, The Shops at Clearfork has luxury storefronts like Louis Vuitton and Gucci, as well as popular retailers, several restaurants with outdoor dining, and a dine-in movie theater showing the latest blockbusters.
