This roundup of Fort Worth restaurant news has quite a few openings and closures including a trendy new revolving sushi place, a longtime steakhouse dive in the Stockyards and a bistro that was serving tea. Other tidbits include winter menus and holiday fares.
Here’s what’s happening in Fort Worth restaurant news:
Revolving Sushi is the name of a new restaurant now open at 3088 Basswood Blvd. #250, in far north Fort Worth near I-35. They do the trendy revolving sushi concept, in which a conveyor belt circulates through the restaurant, allowing diners to snatch up the items of their choice as they trundle by. They’re coming on strong, serving revolving sushi all day, and will be hospitable through the holidays, open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. The restaurant is a sibling to Takara Japanese Restaurant and is located right next door; in fact the two restaurants are adjoining. Takara opened three years ago, and does more traditional Japanese food and sushi.
Fork In The Road, an American/burger restaurant in Arlington at 1821 S. Fielder Rd., is closing after nine years in business, with its final day on Saturday December 3, or until supplies last. According to a Facebook post, the restaurant said that it was unable to stay open with increased prices, shortages, and increased rents, and it was time to retire.
M & M Steak House, a longtime steakhouse in the Stockyards at 1109 NW 28th St., is officially closed. The restaurant, which first opened in 1965 as a Czech-style steakhouse called Papa Joe’s, has not reopened since the pandemic. Owner Keith Kidwill, who also owns Margie’s Original Italian Kitchen on Camp Bowie Boulevard, told the FWST the space is now for rent.
