Home of Cowboy Chef Tim Love :: Cowtown
I’m a new “Texan” hailing from Boston (with Midwestern roots) and I’ve heard some locals say Austin isn’t really Texas. But what I found on a recent trip to Fort Worth is that if you want to know what quintessential Texas looks like, hit the Historic Stockyard area. Cowboys moseying hand in hand with their ladies, 10-gallon hats, aggressive silver buckles and the click clack of cowboy boots on cobblestone. The scene on a Saturday night felt like a movie set. Country music oozing out of honkey tonks, longneck bottles in everyone’s hand and the smell of barbecue and good country cooking permeating the cool winter Texas air.
The ultimate cowboy chef, Tim Love, who is often seen on Bravo’s Top Chef, and inside magazines like Food and Wine has a major presence in the historic Fort Worth stockyards. His flagship restaurant Lonesome Dove Western Bistro is worth the drive, calories and sitting amongst the kitschy cowboy décor.
