Jazz Café, Fort Worth, Texas


By Ellen "EJ" Sackett

Stumble upon Jazz Café in Fort Worth near the Arts District and step
into the Old World. This weathered Mediterranean-style escape offers a
flavor of Greece that extends beyond its gyros, tabouleh and falafel.
From the chipped Neptune sculpture, the faded plastic flamingos, and
retired pay phone to an antique scuba helmet, mounted marlin, and
family photos—everything has a story.

The most expensive menu item is among its best—the sliced Eggplant
Parmesan, lightly breaded, then grilled in olive oil, smothered with
melted mozzarella with fresh rosemary bread. Open wide for one of
several ample-sized sandwiches or go for a traditional Greek salad.
The Tex-Mex fare is surprisingly tasty, particularly the black bean
enchiladas in corn tortillas.

The restaurant is open for lunch seven days a week and adds breakfast
on weekends. Come for live jazz on Sundays, but don't be in a rush.
The service is as laid back as the music and the place itself.
