Tasting notes

The Pour House, the gay-owned sports bar in Fort Worth, is getting a remodel starting this week — continuing a tradition of putting the pub under the knife every three years or so. The physical changes will come with new décor and a renovated menu. During the remodel, owner Eric Tschetter will keep its neighboring sister bar, The Garage, open during normal hours, offering the full Pour House menu. Tschetter also owns PhD, the Dallas incarnation of Pour House opened last fall, on Davis Street in Oak Cliff.

Casie Caldwell, pictured, creator of the Greenz salad restaurants, has a new concept opening this summer in the Trinity Groves development just over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. Actually, it’s not one concept, it’s many. Kitchen LTO will function, according to Caldwell, as a kind of permanent pop-up restaurant, revamping its menu and even its style several times a year. (The LTO of the name is short for ‘limited time only”). Do you like to know what the hot new restaurant is? Well, the idea is that Kitchen LTO will always be new.

That corner of the bridge is getting really popular with foodies lately. From the founder of the North Texas Taco Festival comes the latest celebration of street food, Dallas-Fort Worth TacoCon (Cerveza), which brings together taco trucks (called loncheros) and beer from Dallas’ Four Corners Brewing Co. Five trucks — Chile Pepper Grill, Holy Frijole, Ssahm BBQ, Taco Heads and Taco Party — will be serving their take on the street wrap. The event will be at Four Corners’ grounds near Trinity Groves on Sept. 6, and admission is free. To RSVP, visit TacoConCerveza.eventbrite.com.
