Immerse yourself in WATERS, chef Jon Bonnell’s remarkable seafood restaurant. The layout of WATERS is as innovative as the food is fresh, featuring around 5,000 square feet of space with three entrances, two wine cellars, a comfortable patio, and a Chef’s Table room that seats 12. Of course, the highlight is Jon Bonnell’s delectable menu, featuring wild, seasonal, and sustainable seafood, including a raw bar and numerous daily specials from around the world.

The style brings together flavors of the southwest, with hints of Louisiana, but the featured ingredients themselves typically speak the loudest.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_column_text]

Bird Café

At Bird Café, the focus is Modern Southern cuisine for everyone. Bird Cafe is a chef-driven restaurant where the focus is on delicious and delectable shared plates. Signature items include the Monte Cristo sandwich special, “Moth balls,” pot pies, and mussels. Many ingredients are locally sourced, and the restaurant offers an extensive selection of wines and craft beers. Located in the historic Land Title Building, the split-level design features more than 6,400 square feet of indoor space and 2,300 square feet of patio space looking out on Sundance Square Plaza.

The restaurant’s avian theme is evident in the art on the walls: gorgeous watercolors of birds painted by Fort Worth artists Scott and Stuart Gentling.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_column_text]


If you’re looking for legendary Texas cuisine, you just found it.

Top items include Tenderloin Tamales, Blackened Buffalo Ribeye, Chicken Fried Steak, Stacked Chicken Enchiladas, and Pan Seared Pepper Crusted Tenderloin. For lighter appetites, try the Trio platter of salads, salmon and seasonal fish. The wine list is just as tempting, with offerings from California, Spain, Argentina, Australia, and France. With four stories and nearly 20,000 square feet, there’s a whole lot to like here. Relax and enjoy the rustic but elegant atmosphere, rooftop bar and patio, museum-quality artifacts, and amazing service.

Explore Fort Worth Option

Sign up to visit a new restaurant that has just opened, soon to open, or perhaps it’s a pop up, or is still in the incubator stage. Will be located within a 15 min car ride of Fort Worth (Ride Share Encouraged). Additional information coming soon!

The Explore Fort Worth Option restaurant will be: Wishbone & Flynt

Chef Stefon Rishel is tough to typecast. He’s proven his proficiency ranges from Southern comfort food to high-end steakhouses, even if his trademark mohawk hairstyle remains the same. His new concept, Wishbone & Flynt, will arrive in January following more than two years of planning and construction.

The menu allows the chef to explore the full gamut of global cuisine, and will focus on small plates and shareable dishes. There will be between 12 and 16 items on the seasonally-inspired menu, “with a chef’s board featuring all the ‘odd bits’ like chicken livers and hearts, and pig ears. I’m a snout-to-tail cook, and always try to utilize the whole animal,” Rishel says.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
