Wine and Dine!

Eric and I are good friends with a couple that lives in Dallas-- Jim and Rebecca. I wrote about Rebecca in my previous post (she was the one who attended the Holiday Hostess Soiree with me) and she is super fab! Her boyfriend is Jim, and he was Eric's partner in crime at TCU. They were in the same fraternity and they have stayed very close friends since their graduation.
Because of the distance between us (Dallas is about an hour from Fort Worth) we can't see each other as frequently as we would all like, so we try to plan dinners together every other month or so. During our last dinner date, we went to a restaurant in Fort Worth off Bryant Irvin called Bonnell's (Fine Texas Cuisine) and it was
SUCH a great time!
This time we went to a new restaurant in the West 7th district of Fort Worth called Tillman's Roadhouse. This place was INCREDIBLE. I loved everything about it, well... almost everything. It was a bit pricey, but other than the bill, I loved the decor, the food, the overall ambiance... everything else!
I'd say it was worth the price of the meal.
For an appetizer, we all split the Trio Fries: a super tasty combination of Parmesan black pepper fries, chili dusted purple Peruvian fries, and salted sweet potato fries with various dipping sauces.
For an entree, I ordered Venison Chile Frito Pie and Eric ordered the Wood Grilled Pork Tenderloin. Both were equally amazing.
For dessert, we all split the Table Side S'mores... AKA: THE COOLEST THING EVER. They bring giant home-made marshmallows to the table with pieces of chocolate, gram crackers, roasting sticks, and a little fire pit! You literally roast your marshmallows at the table. It was SO much fun.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone...
and it's especially wonderful
when you're in the company of
{fabulous friends}.

Absolutely stunning decor...
I LOVE the combination of elegant and rustic.
