Black Cat Pizza began as a late night pop-up in 2018, flipping a local bakery into a pizza joint to satisfy those after-hours cravings. With scratch made dough perfected by Chef and Owner Jaime Fernandez and non-traditional toppings such as Aloo Gobi Masala, Chicken and Waffles, Cochinita Pibil, Grilled Celery Caesar Salad, Papas Bravas (among many, many others) Black Cat quickly became a Fort Worth favorite. With the opening of the 401 Bryan Ave restaurant, the menu has expanded to include sandwiches, salads, craft beer, and wine.
What makes Cannon Chinese Kitchen’s concept different? They aren’t your typical Chinese restaurant (American or Traditional). Cannon utilizes fresh produce and quality meats prepared with unique Chinese ingredients in the creation of flavorful dishes. There is a major emphasis on freshness and quality – many dishes and sauces are prepared from scratch. Set in a restored 1930s home, striking wallpaper and plush furniture help create a fun environment with the warmth of dining at grandma’s.
The Coco Shrimp dream began while the founders were attending BYU-Hawaii.
The dream became bringing the good vibes and great flavors back to our hometown of Fort Worth by opening a shrimp truck just like the ones you can find on the North Shore. We were able to bring a taste of Hawaii back to Texas.
Coco Shrimp is the first and only mobile-seafood restaurant in Fort Worth and has made Yelp’s “Top Five Local Food Trucks” list.
Coco Shrimp now has a brick and mortar store in the South Man Village.
Four Sisters is meant to be basic, homestyle Vietnamese fare, the way Pham (owner) remembers from family dinners with his sisters and mother.
“People say they miss Mom’s cooking or Grandma’s cooking,” Pham said.
“That’s what I hope to bring.”
The sleek, cozy restaurant is trimmed in light woods with large windows looking out on the emerging development along Main.
