Fort Worth is a cattle town that takes their cuts of steak seriously. In a city with steak and chop houses on nearly every corner, Reata sets itself apart, especially with its rooftop bar and patio where you can take in downtown and Sundance Square. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the calf fries (bull testicles) with cream gravy. But you’re here for steak, and we’d recommend the bone-in rib eye with the Cook’s Butter: it’s juicy, a touch salty, and the marbled fat melts in your mouth. Top it off with the Texan Pecan Pie for a perfectly Fort Worth meal on a perfect Fort Worth rooftop.
