Reata Steakhouse - Downtown Fort Worth
We walked out of the Embassy Suites one night with the sole purpose of finding a steakhouse. We wandered around and checked a few menus at some nearby restaurants before seeing a pretty big crowd in the windows of Reata. We didn't even check the menu before finding the front door and requesting a table. Once we were seated I was pleased by the friendly waitress who was happy to spend several minutes explaining the specials and the best items on the menu, though once she did stumble and say "Oh, crap, I forgot," as she grabbed a menu to refresh her memory.
I ordered the Blackened "Buffalo" rib eye with Cook's Butter. No, it wasn't served fried and spicy, Buffalo style, it was actually a steak made from bison, often called buffalo. I ordered it cooked medium rare and served with asparagus rather than green beans. When it arrived, I was very impressed... the meat was excellent and tender. The side dishes, mashed potatoes, and asparagus were also great. The rib eye was a bit expensive at $32, but it was excellent. Shiner Bock beers were $4.50.
This huge, 20,000 square foot restaurant is located right on Sundance Square, and it has four floors of bars and seating. They also have second location in Alpine, Texas.
