Fort Worth Star-Telegram (May 17, 2018) – A year ago, we wrote that compiling a list of good new North Texas patios is becoming an annual event. There were a dozen new patios (to go along with the classics) in our 2017 story, and there could have been more.
And there are a dozen new patios in our 2018 story — and there could have been more. New restaurants that don’t have patios have become the exception, not the rule.
Heck, the Shops at Clearfork, the new (mostly) luxury dining-retail center in southwest Fort Worth, appears to have made patios a requirement for its restaurants — to the point that we could’ve done this story on those alone.
