Sidesaddle Saloon Now Open In Mule Alley!

‘Finest Saloon in Texas’ NOW OPEN in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards

Sidesaddle Saloon is now open in Mule Alley with a selection of craft cocktails, beer, wine, spirits, and Texas tapas. Neon Light District Hospitality Group Partners Sarah Castillo, Glen Keely, and Christian Lehrmann, the team behind Fort Worth favorites Tinie’s and Taco Heads, created the ‘finest saloon in Texas’ to pay homage to the spirit of the American Cowgirl.

“We love the idea of an elevated ‘watering hole’ for our growing city, and we are fond of the nod to the cowgirl — we’re fans of tough, fearless women who can handle their own,” said Castillo. “We’re excited to provide our community with a refined, yet laid-back bar where everyone feels welcome.”

Leading the kitchen is Lehrmann, who focused on a Texas Tapas menu featuring down-home favorites with a sophisticated twist. Dishes include country ham and pimento cheese served with pickled vegetables, bison tartare with mustard vinaigrette and toasted sourdough, bacon cheddar chive biscuits with whipped butter, and deviled eggs with caviar and crème fraîche.

The craft cocktail menu, created by Keely, features signature mixed drinks with names inspired by American cowgirls and outlaws, like the “The Prairie Rose Henderson,” a perfect mix of Old Forester Bourbon’d Texas Tea, raspberry, and rose water, and the “Belle Star,” a blend of Silverstar Vodka, mint, strawberry aloe syrup, lemon, and Peychaud’s. The extensive beer, wine, and spirits menu will feature a variety of brands from Texas and beyond.

“We are excited to work with the Sidesaddle team on this concept. The partners bring a real sense of community and Fort Worth flair to every concept they’re a part of,” said M2G Ventures Co-President Jessica Miller Essl. “Sidesaddle Saloon will further the Mule Alley legacy of being the top dining, shopping, and entertainment destination in Fort Worth.”

Sidesaddle Saloon joins Mule Alley’s open tenants, including Hotel Drover, Provender Hall, Shake Shack, Lucchese Bootmaker, MB Mercantile & Supply, American Paint Horse Association’s flagship experience, Biscuit Bar, Cowtown Winery, Wrangler, King Ranch Saddle Shop, Proper Supply Co., and Simpli.fi national headquarters. Mule Alley will soon welcome additional retail and restaurants, including Second Rodeo Brewing Co., Avoca Coffee, and two new restaurant concepts from Chef Tim Love.

Sidesaddle Saloon is located at 122 E. Exchange suite 240 and will be open Monday through Thursday from 3 to 10pm, Friday and Saturday from noon to midnight, and Sunday from noon to 10pm. For more information, please visit www.sidesaddle-saloon.com and follow on Instagram @sidesaddlesaloon.

Wolfgang Puck Catering at The Modern

Wolfgang Puck Catering at The Modern

Wolfgang Puck Catering and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth announce their partnership, with the former now joining as operator of all the Museum’s catering and events, as well as Café Modern, beginning this spring. With its unique restaurant-style approach to catering, Wolfgang Puck Catering is nationally recognized for its warm hospitality, creative cuisine, and customized experiences.

“We have been fortunate to be a part of the Texas culinary landscape for the past 13 years, and we are excited to expand our footprint in the state with our new partnership with the Modern,” said Drew Swanson, Texas Regional Executive Chef, Wolfgang Puck Catering.

“Wolfgang Puck Catering brings an international reputation for excellence to Café Modern, and we look forward to working with their team,” said Marla Price, Director, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

Leading the culinary team will be Chef Jett Mora, a seasoned Wolfgang Puck Catering veteran for the past decade. A staunch believer in local immersion, Mora has already spent time in the region with Regional Executive Chef Drew Swanson forging relationships with farmers and purveyors. As a result, Mora will create seasonal menus rooted in Texas ingredients combined with Wolfgang’s signature touch.

At Café Modern, Mora will team with General Manager Roxanne Mclarry, who has been with the Museum for the past 17 years. Slated to open this spring, the restaurant will offer weekday lunch, Friday happy hour, Friday dinner, and weekend brunch with seating available both indoors and on the expansive outdoor patio. The menus will feature comfort food with global influences and a beverage program showcasing local spirits.

The Modern occupies a world-renowned building designed by Tadao Ando, with a picturesque reflecting-pond backdrop, making it an impressive venue for corporate or social events. Mora and his team of chefs will customize each event menu to tell the client’s story through food. As the exclusive caterer for many of the country’s premier cultural, corporate, and entertainment centers, Wolfgang’s expert team of experienced planners and chefs handle all the details from start to finish, creating a truly personalized event.

About Executive Chef Jett Mora
A graduate of the Academy of Culinary Education in California, the Los Angeles-born and bred chef Jett Mora began his cooking career with the highly acclaimed Wolfgang Puck Catering (WPC) in 2011. Working in WPC’s flagship Hollywood & Highland kitchen, Mora spent years working alongside Wolfgang and his team of chefs to create menus for weddings, special events, corporate galas, and some of the country’s premier events including the Oscars® Governors Ball.

Throughout his ten years with Wolfgang Puck Catering, Mora’s creativity, leadership, and support enabled him to advance quickly through the ranks, leading corporate dining at a top technology and entertainment client before joining Puck’s West Hollywood restaurant Red Seven as Executive Chef.

Mora then received the coveted opportunity to cook inside Wolfgang’s Test Kitchen, the master chef’s culinary incubator where Mora created his own multi-course tasting menus. This “experimental” restaurant allowed Mora to explore new dishes, ingredients, and cuisines and to design menus without limitations.

In 2021, Mora relocated to Fort Worth, Texas to lead the culinary team at the Modern, overseeing food and beverage operations, menu creation and catering and events, including running the museum’s signature restaurant, Café Modern.

Music, Memory and More with the Fort Worth Opera

Music, Memory and More with the Fort Worth Opera

This innovative new program is funded in part by a generous grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, in partnership with Dementia Friendly Fort Worth and the United Way Area Agency on Aging in Texas.

Fort Worth Opera (FWO) announced today the launch of Music, Memory, and More, a seven-week series (March 30, April 8, 22, May 13, 27, and June 10, 15 at 10:30 am CST). This series features guest artists from Fort Worth Opera, along with the company’s talented Lesley Resident Artists. Each hour-long event begins with a mini-concert. During the first event on Tuesday, March 30, this therapeutic program will consist of two 20-minute segments. The first half of every session will feature musical performances followed by an interactive activity. Each activity is specifically designed to engage individuals living with dementia in the DFW area. In addition to the March 30 event, the series will be offered twice monthly through April, May, and June. Supported in part by a special grant from the Texas Commission of the Arts, this inspiring new series is an extension of Fort Worth Opera’s special community programming and marks the inaugural collaboration between FWO, Dementia Friendly Fort Worth, and the United Way Area Agency on Aging in Texas.

The connection between music and memory has been the ongoing subject of international research for many decades. A recent clinical study published in The Journal of Prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease found that musical stimuli delayed cognitive decline and showed improvement in brain network synchronization within individuals suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s.¹ Musical aptitude and appreciation are two of the final remaining cognitive abilities in the minds of dementia patients, and musical memory appears to endure long after the mind has begun to deteriorate. With more than 100 types of incurable dementia in existence, Fort Worth Opera hopes this series will provide another impactful way to move beyond the stigma of the disease, share our passion for music, and connect with members of our community.

Music, Memory, and More will feature FWO Manager of Education and Community Engagement, Sheran Goodspeed Keyton, and a guest presenter who will guide participants through fun and engaging activities, including music, movement, music therapy, call and response interaction, and socialization. Having a routine is beneficial for individuals living with dementia, so FWO has chosen to offer this program twice a month through June of this year. Within these recorded sessions, there will be opportunities to discuss the art form of opera, learn more about the six historical periods of classical music and the different voice types. There will also be many moments throughout this series where participants can sing along. For those who cannot join us, each recording will be available to watch online through Worth Opera and Dementia Friendly Fort Worth’s YouTube channels for thirty days following each session.

To attend, please contact Gail Snider at gsnider@dementiafriendlyfw.org and 817-994-3803.

Easter Brunch & Dining in the Fort

Easter Brunch & Dining in the Fort

Easter is a time for new beginnings. Not only does Easter feel like the real beginning of new life in the world, spring flowers, pastel colors, happy faces and families gathering together to celebrate the Resurrection, but it also symbolizes new beginnings in our lives.

Just like Easter in 2020, our discussions of new beginnings are clouded by COVID-19. Each of us will make our own decisions about our gatherings with friends and family during this joyous Easter season.

Fort Worth restaurants have struggled for over 12 months due to COVID-19, and they continue to need our support. If an Easter Brunch or family lunch or dinner celebration is in your plans, What’s Up Fort Worth, with the help of Fort Worth Foodies, offers you this list of Fort Worth restaurants that have Easter brunches or dining options for your consideration.

If you consider yourself a Foodie or you just like to see what’s up in the Fort Worth culinary scene, you need to check out Fort Worth Foodies. Click here for the Fort Worth Foodies website, or Facebook page.
