Relocated from its Bank One Tower perch to a more grounded tabernacle of cowboy cuisine and artifacts, Reata maintains its deft touch with domesticated hoofed foods, game, grits, tamales and calf fries, a culinary abuse of the bovine family jewels. But the décor is as much of a show as the food with cowboy murals, displays of collectable saddles and boots, a picture gallery of Fort Worth mayors and a rooftop patio cultivated with Texas flora. You can even wear your hat at the table (but don't whittle the table legs with your spurs).
