“What the Fearless Critic books and apps have that UrbanSpoon and Yelp don’t is a complete lack of bullshit.”
“I’ve spent years driving around with Zagat...but I think I’ll replace it with this Fearless Critic guide.”

Ellerbe Fine Foods
Experience farm-to-table Fort Worth terroir in what used to be a gas station

Passion for and momentum toward locally sourced, locally grown menu ingredients keeps building in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Ellerbe Fine Foods drives this passion to innovative levels, crafting imaginative upscale farm-to-table fare within an orbit of local farms and ranches. Founded by Shreveport, Louisiana-born epicureans Molly McCook and Richard King, Ellerbe’s was once a 1920s-era gas station before it was transformed into a homey dining room. It’s a warm and airy space, with white-clothed tables that are covered in brown butcher paper.

Sample braised rabbit and brie crêpes with grilled peaches and crispy shallots, or buttery New Orleans-style BBQ Gulf shrimp with spoon bread and a sauce spiked with Abita Amber, a Louisiana lager. Or try the herb-crusted quail stuffed with homemade boudin, curried pears, and pan-roasted turnips. And there’s little that’s more Texas local than chili-rubbed wild boar served with mesquite bean blinis, crisped prickly pears, and homemade pepper jelly.

A fancy market up front sells boutique wines, specialty vinegars, jellies, and local cheeses plus handcrafted products (cheeseboards, pitchers) from local artisans.
