Frankie's, Café Brazil Moving West

Dallas establishments to open in FW

by Bruce Felps

In a sweeping generality, Fort Worth generally does not like Dallas. The question is about to become: Will Fort Worth like Dallas eating and drinking establishments?

We’ll know soon enough.

Frankie’s Sports Bar should be open at Sundance Square sometime next month. The 8,000-square-foot joint fills in a first-floor section of The Carnegie and features a 15-foot wall plastered with 30 high-def TVs.

Having been to the Uptown location a few times, even though it is on the other side of Central Expressway, I can recommend the place as a sports-watching, beer-drinking mecca.

Good timing, too, since it opens just before Super Bowl XLV. It’ll make a fine place to watch the game because us — we? — local commoners will not get into Cowboys Coliseum that day.

Café Brazil, a semi-mainstay for brunch in Dallas, takes over the old Los Vaqueros space across from TCU — because college kids need hangover food, too — and should be open during March.

Word: Migas, hold the tomatoes, with the cheesy-hash brown casserole in lieu of the Rosemary potatoes. Them’s good eatin’.

Be nice to them, Fort Worth.
