Fort Worth Star-Telegram (December 19, 2017) – The Shops at Clearfork development is definitely all about the fork.
The still-pending opening of B&B Butchers & Restaurant makes seven major restauarants now open in the new southwest Fort Worth shopping center, and seven different menus of desserts. Diners are already choosing up sides about which Malai Kitchen dessert is the best: the toasted coconut cream pie, or Malai’s banana pot de creme.
The best place for that debate is over a chocolate souffle or Grand Marnier souffle at Rise n°3. From riverbank to tollway, Clearfork’s restaurants offer a remarkable selection of sweets.
Malai Kitchen’s coconut pie on a macaroon crust with coconut gelato and tamarind-caramel sauce is a dream come true for those who love coconut pie.The banana pot de creme is bruleed with dark chocolate. There’s also a mango-sticky rice custard and a chili-peanut chocolate roll.
NM Cafe at Neiman Marcus serves a strudel and cake of the day — it was red velvet last week — along with those Neiman Marcus cookies. The new Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar also is known for its “drunken doughnuts” with caramel, chocolate-Irish cream and amaretto, or a soft-baked chocolate chunk cookie over ice cream with sauce.
City Works Eatery and Pour House, mostly a sports bar, also serves a butterscotch bread pudding or peanut butter-Snickers pie. Cru Wine Bar isn’t running a full schedule yet, but the dessert menu includes a lemon tart with pistachio crust. That’s not to mention Joy Macarons or the desserts at Starbucks Coffee.
