Do you remember the legendary chili served at the Richelieu Grill or the Bakon Burger at Carlson’s Drive-Inn? Fort Worth has a rich tradition of remarkable restaurants — past and present. While newcomers to Cowtown can still enjoy eating at such famous landmarks as Carshon’s Deli, Riscky’s and Joe T. Garcia’s, there are some old favorites that only “old-timers” will remember. A frequent food contributor to Indulge, Celestina Blok has written a new book exploring some of Fort Worth’s most iconic — yet defunct — eateries.
In “Lost Restaurants of Fort Worth,” the chef-trained-writer and third-generation Fort Worth native takes us back in time with photos and descriptions to many legendary restaurants that have gone the way of the typewriter and the rotary phone. There are even a few recipes included! A great gift for the native area foodie, “Lost Restaurants” will bring back fond memories of meals past. Published by Arcadia Publishing, Blok’s paperback is priced $21.99 and available at the TCU Bookstore and Barnes & Noble, as well as on Amazon and the publisher’s website, to name a few. https://www.arcadiapublishing.com.
