Lanny’s Alta Cocina is without a doubt one of the pillars of the Fort Worth dining scene. Headed up by the great-grandson of the guy who founded Joe T. Garcia’s, Lanny's turns out food that is miles away from the fajitas and margaritas you’ll find at that other institution. Refined and classy but never stuffy or pretentious, the dining room is sleek and minimalist without feeling cold. Lanny’s haute cuisine fuses Mexican ingredients like tequila, chiles, mole and pepitas with Mediterranean techniques -- and vice versa -- to create dishes such as mezcal-cured hamachi, black cod chile relleno and carne asada with gnocchi in chipotle brown butter. A five-course tasting menu is available for $60; add the optional wine pairings to bring your tab to a cool hundred bucks per person and experience some of the most refined and quintessentially Fort Worth-ian cuisine the area has to offer.
