If you want to impress that special someone with a wonderful night out, Olympus 7th Street Station recommends these three restaurants near downtown Fort Worth. Whether you’re looking for elegant fine dining or a more casual and fun vibe, we’ve got you covered.
The Capital Grille
From the club-like ambiance in downtown Fort Worth to the upscale steakhouse menu, The Capital Grille (800 Main St.) provides a fine dining experience that’s sure to impress your date. Top menu picks include the Porcini Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye with 15-Year Aged Balsamic or the classic surf-and-turf: Seared Tenderloin with Butter Poached Lobster Tails. If you’re not in the mood for red meat, there are a number of chicken and seafood options available such as the Pan-Seared Sea Bass with Miso Butter. You can also make a meal out of some of the hearty sides, like the Lobster Mac ‘N’ Cheese. Fair warning though, a meal here will leave a sizeable dent in your bank account.
Game Theory Restaurant + Bar
For a more casual twist on date night, check out Game Theory Restaurant + Bar (804 S. Main St.). Here you can enjoy eclectic gastro-pub fare and a selection of more than 500 board games to keep you entertained over dinner, which could be a great way to avoid awkward conversational gaps on a first date, or just break you out of your date night rut! You won’t go wrong with the Bad & Bougie Charcuterie Board, Brisket Quesadilla, or the Pie Flight (with Aussie, BBQ Pulled Pork, Viet Philly, and Chicken Cordon Bleu mini pies). The staff will even teach you how to play games you’re unfamiliar with. This is how you win at date night!
Eddie V’s Prime Seafood
Located in Museum Place, Eddie V’s Prime Seafood (3100 West Seventh Street) delivers an elegant dining experience with expert service, a tempting menu of seafood and other options, plus an extensive wine and cocktail list. Start off with oysters and caviar, then take your pick of ocean favorites from around the world including jumbo Gulf shrimp, South African lobster, Norweigan salmon, Texas redfish, Georges Bank scallops, Alaskan king crab legs, and more. There’s also a selection of premium hand-cut steaks and a range of tasty sides and desserts. Not a cheap night out, but oh so worth it for a special occasion. A selection of their steaks and seafood are also available for you to cook at home if you want to put your own spin on date night.
