This week our eating adventure landed us at Grace in downtown Ft. Worth to end DFW Restaurant Week. We have not been back to Ft. Worth since India had her “fiasco” at Cane Rosso, that ended in a night on toilet. (Okay not really. Lol It was more like a ‘swole’ up face that replicated that scene from hitch).
We saw the menu for restaurant week at Grace and had to make a trip. The atmosphere of the restaurant is perfect, it was fairly busy, but not noisy like a lot of restaurants are. The decor was very simple, with a touch of elegance.
I had the chilled cucumber and tomato soup for my starter. It was served with a piece of toasted zucchini bread, which in my opinion was the only part I really liked. The soup tasted like cold marinara sauce with bits of cucumber in it. I definitely could have done without that honestly.
India had the peach and arugula salad. The peach served perfectly with the arugula and was definitely a great pair together.
We decided to get the second optional course and share it. It was a seared diver scallop served with orzo pasta. It was cooked perfectly, very tender and the orzo was great as well. I wish they offered it as an entire dish.
For my third course I had the Pan Seared Hake that was served with a sweet corn succotash, bacon and red potatoes. The Hake was very flaky and it had a clean flavor and it was not over powered by a bunch of seasoning. The succotash was not that amazing to me, it was just vegetables tossed in a butter sauce.
India had the filet that came with stone ground polenta, caramelized onions and mushrooms. India chose to have it cooked medium rare which is her favorite and she loved it! The filet was flavorful and juicy and cooked to perfection. She pretty much licked the plate clean. lol
Lastly came dessert. I had the panna cotta served with honey dew and cantaloupe and was topped with a corn flake crumble. I did enjoy this dish, but by the end of the meal, I was about ready to pop, so it was hard to get it down.
India had the warm chocolate pudding cake that was served with house made peanut butter ice-cream and candied citrus. Hands down one of the best desserts by far. As a peanut butter fanatic, India raved about the ice-cream and said that they should definitely box that up and sell it. She also wouldn’t have been opposed if they would have fixed her up a to-go box full of it.
Grace was perfect! Delicious food and even better service. Our main recommendation would be to bring some extra cash and just pay for the valet. Parking downtown in Ft. Worth is a pain in the butt, so the valet will help you save time on driving around to find parking, but most importantly, you can still look cute in your heels without the 10 mile walk. *hair flips*
