If you’re starving for Fort Worth food news, today’s your lucky day. Five new and upcoming restaurants are on this morning’s menu.

🍦 Open

Eggtastic Brunch Cafe & Coffee Roastery, Alliance
We’re egg-static for this breakfast spot that recently opened in Alliance Town Center. Stop in for a deep-fried cinnamon roll or a plate of migas + wash it down with an avocado-pineapple margarita with a tajin rim.

Jeremiah’s Italian Ice, Keller
A new frozen dessert shop opened at 2122 Rufe Snow Dr. yesterday. The Florida-based chain serves 40+ flavors of Italian ice and soft-serve ice cream. Can’t decide which one you want? No problem, just order a Jeremiah’s Gelati with layers of both.

☕️ Coming Soon

Ampersand, DFW Airport
Soon you’ll be able to grab your local brew on your way to catch your flight because the coffee shop is opening a new location in Terminal C this fall. For now, stop by the West 7th or TCU location for your morning cup of Joe.

Press Cafe, Aledo
The popular patio restaurant in Clearfork is planning a second location 20 minutes west of the original. Owned by Felipe Armenta’s restaurant group FAR Out Hospitality, the American eatery will take over the former Bistro 1031 location at 109 S. Front St. this fall.

Snap Kitchen, West 7th
Crockett Row will get a new healthy option this summer. Real estate manager Younger Partners leased a space to Snap Kitchen at 2941 W. 7th St. for ready-to-eat-meals made with local ingredients. The chain currently has a location across the street next to Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

News Notes
 
Open
  • Time to dive in — Marine Park Aquatic Center and Sycamore Spray Ground will open just in time for Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, May 27-Monday, May 29). The $5 pool and free splash pad will open every weekend until the official summer season starts on Tuesday, June 13.
Civic
  • Most municipal facilities — including animal shelters and waste drop-off stations — will be closed on Monday, May 29 for Memorial Day. Trinity Metro services will also operate on modified schedules.
Development
  • Plans are moving forward for the $400 million expansion that will relocate Autobahn Fort Worth to Clearfork. In Tuesday’s meeting, City Council approved a $22 million economic development agreement with Cassco Land Company that will provide tax incentives for the project.
Coming Soon
  • A new nail salon known for its vibrant, pink decor is headed to Crockett Row. Rose Couture Nail Bar will open a salon — offering manicures, pedicure, waxing, and lash treatments — by Friday, Sept. 1 at 2809 W. 7th St. The luxury boutique salon currently has locations in Dallas, Prosper, and Fairview.
Real Estate
  • We have all the heart eyes for this new listing in Westover Hills. The 5,450-sqft English Tudor mansion is on the market for $4.15 million. The four-bedroom house features a dining room with arched windows, a black lacquered kitchen, and hand-painted wallpaper.
Sports
  • Whew, that was close — the Dallas Stars held their ground last night in Game 4 of the NHL Conference Finals, beating the Vegas Golden Knights (3-2) in overtime. The Stars were down by three games but have another chance to stay in the Stanley Cup playoffs tomorrow night at 7 p.m.

Shop
  • What do you think Cowtown smells like? According to The Worthy Co., it has notes of leather and cashmere. The signature candle supports the nonprofit’s mission to provide employment and empowerment for survivors of trafficking.

Did you know Tina and Ike Turner’s first album to reach the Billboard charts was recorded in DFW? | Photos via @fortworthyhistory
She was simply, the best — and the world will forever miss her. Music legend Tina Turner died earlier this week at 83 years old, so we’re looking back at six concerts the Queen of Rock and Roll performed in Cowtown.

In 1964, “Live! The Ike & Tina Turner Show” was recorded at the Skyliner Ballroom on Jacksboro Highway. From May 1966 to June 1986, Tina performed four times — twice at the Casino Ballroom, once at the North Side Coliseum, and again at Will Rogers Auditorium.

The Grammy-winning artist returned to the Tarrant County Convention Center Arena in March 1972 before performing her last Fort Worth concert at Billy Bob’s Texas in January 1982.

Her music has been memorialized on stages across the world and continues to do so. Mark your calendars to see “Tina - The Tina Turner Musical” at Bass Performance Hall in February 2024.

From the editor
Three cheers for Jeziyah Parker — the 12-year-old girl was recognized by City Council for saving her mother and siblings’ lives with the help of the Fort Worth Fire Department.

In March, the family’s home filled with carbon monoxide and Jeziyah called for help just in time. Six family members and five firefighters were hospitalized after the incident but have recovered.
