I am from NYC, and planning my husband's 30th birthday weekend in Fort Worth this August. I am having a hard time figuring out where to have the dinner as it's difficult to gauge from sparse online reviews. We will be celebrating a Friday night dinner with 14-17 of our family/friends (all ages), and I cannot find a place! And since it's my new hubby's 30th, and I'm hosting for family members on his side, I really don't want to risk having a bad experience. I've asked some cousins for suggestions, and was directed to Pizzeria Uno (um, please help!).
So far I have found Taverna (Italian) and Reata (Western). Does anyone know anything about either of these places? I am thinking Italian might be a good choice since there are some vegetarians in the group. But I am open to anything worth checking out in Fort Worth. These seem a little pricey for Texas, no?
Can anyone recommend a delicious Italian spot that isn't overpriced? Or any restaurant that has a fun vibe, and amazing, not-overpriced food? Maybe not Tex-Mex since there is a BBQ planned for Saturday, and Sunday am, I am planning Blue Mesa Grill for Sunday brunch.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
