H Bar C Ranchwear is Here to Stay

W

by Bailey Powell Aldrich

What do John Wayne, the cast of “Urban Cowboy,” and Gwen Stefani have in common? They’ve all been outfitted by H Bar C Ranchwear, a pillar of western wear since it was developed in the late 1800s. H Bar C Ranchwear first dipped its toes into the Fort Worth market with a sold out pop up store at the 2020 National Finals Rodeo (NFR). The people of Fort Worth had officially spoken with their spending! While H Bar C intended to come to Fort Worth in a temporary

capacity for NFR, they quickly saw how the brand would fit right in with a permanent presence. In November 2021 H Bar C Ranchwear’s doors swung open in the Stockyards area on N. Main St., and the shop is walking distance from Springhill Suites, Joe T. Garcia’s, and Mule Alley’s brand-spankin’-new Hotel Drover. Nestled between these key destinations, the store is accessible and right at home. In addition to the new storefront, the brand is also looking forward to celebrating the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo this 4

month. If the past is any indicator, they’ll probably get cleaned out again, so be sure to stop by early! H Bar C began as a luxury outfitter with an “English riding flair” in Brooklyn, New York by tailor Samuel Christenfeld

(the C) who, soon after, partnered with sartorial equal Mel Halpern (the H). When Christenfeld passed away, his five sons carried on the legacy by maintaining the integrity of the brand while also expanding its reach. In true Americana form, the brand traveled west over the years and collected loyal clientele en route, and is now an internationally heralded brand. One of the Christenfeld sons, Seymour, notably put down roots in Los


Angeles and established a rich relationship with Hollywood by dressing cast members in H Bar C’s authentic western wear. From Gene Autry to Elvis Presley to Miranda Lambert, the brand is also

known for being loved by music industry royalty, especially on the Nashville scene. Since western wear and country music go hand in hand, H Bar C has just launched a sharp collaboration with Gibson Guitars. In the same vein, they plan to host instore, live music events, so be sure to keep an eye on their website and Instagram (@hbarcofficial) for information. While very plugged into the everchanging entertainment industry, there’s nothing gimmicky or fleeting about H Bar C. The quality of the brand speaks for itself by 80 and 90 year-old pieces literally standing the test of time and continuing to perform decades after their original construction. When Seymour Christenfeld passed away in 1996, H Bar C stepped back to reevaluate their business model. While on hiatus, there was a massive influx of demand for vintage H Bar C pieces on platforms like Etsy and eBay. H Bar C returned to the market with style in 2016, championing the original ideals of Christenfeld and Halpern with a modern twist. Without losing its signature look and quality, the brand continues to evolve with

the times by employing things like Tencel, their environmentally-friendly fabric. Anytime you’re in the store, an adult beverage is on offer so you can kick back and relax while trying things on and admiring their celebrity wall of fame. The staff is warm, welcoming, and ready to help. It’s not just shopping; it’s an expe-

rience. After more than a hundred years, H Bar C continues to capture the same utility touched with creative designs and luxury to this day. So, if you’re in the market for a well-made pearl snap for dinner out at Cattlemen’s or a rhinestone clad, tasseled crop top to two-step in at Billy Bob’s, you know where to go. H Bar C Ranchwear is open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sundays and, of course, January 14-February 5,

2022 during the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. Stop by, say hi, and grab a wellmade, authentically western accessory or piece of clothing that’ll last you a lifetime. 2231 N. Main St., 817-504-8607, www.hbarc.com. January 2022

West is Among the Best for Culture and Shopping-and-Dining Delights

H

by Michael H. Price

“Happy to follow the bumpy brick road,” reads a newspaper headline from 1981 — a lasting assertion that Camp Bowie Boulevard’s historic brick pavement must endure, and never mind the occasional traffic-engineering idea of modernizing the pathway with concrete and asphalt. Now as then, seekers of entertainment, adventure, and dining experiences remain “happy to follow the bumpy brick road,” as a principal gateway to Fort Worth’s west side and its many commercial and civic offshoots. The attractions range from a burgeoning West 7th Street district to a broadening cultural and historical district – connecting southward with University Park Village, westward with the Chapel Hill shopping-andentertainment development, and branching out further with new moviegoing venues, boutique eateries, and varied opportunities for strolling and sightseeing amid architectural innovations on a comfortably human scale. Pioneering publisher and civic booster Amon Carter characterized Fort Worth as “where the West begins.” And for locals and visitors alike, the west side marks the beginning of that beginning: The West hardly could have picked a keener starting point than Fort Worth. Prominent among the newer landmarks is Dickies Arena, a versatile 14,000-seat showplace named after the Fort Worthbased manufacturer of workplace clothing. Located at 1911 Montgomery Street within the Will Rogers Memorial Center, Dickies Arena complements and expands the scope of the adjacent Will Rogers Complex, providing a new home for the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo. And Fort Worth, in turn, hardly could have picked a site more right for its burgeoning west side Cultural District. Rippling with heavy-duty commercial, artistic, and residential growth since the dawn of the 21st cen6

tury, the west side overall has seen its very skyline change with the transformation of a busy West 7th Street into a streamlined conduit connecting the downtown area’s Sundance Square development with the Cultural District. Heading west (naturally) from downtown Fort Worth, one finds the Cultural District radiating from the intersection where Seventh Street crosses University Drive and, in the process, morphs into the historic, brickpaved Camp Bowie Boulevard. Visitors in search of western-style discoveries — from plain-and-fancy dining, to fine art and varied entertainment — will find such delights in volume on the west side. Cultural attractions, restaurants, mainstream and special-interest shopping, and lavish natural gardens flourish as a reminder of how Fort Worth has built upon its frontier origins. Several of the world’s finer museums, playhouses and galleries anchor a vast Cultural District. The hand-laid red-brick pavement of Camp Bowie Boulevard is an attraction in itself, lined with an ever-expanding array of art galleries, stage-and-screen auditoriums, boutiques, scholarly museums, restaurants and lounges, and shopping malls. One long-standing favorite, Domain XCIV, 3100 W. 7th Street, originated in 1994 along Camp Bowie Boulevard. Persistent growth has led to a 6,500-square-foot showcase, combining fine furniture and vintage European treasures and accessories. Collections include Theodore Alexander, Wesley Hall, and Guild Master. Domain XCIV has long supplied anchorage for the villagewithin-a-city developments of the West 7th Street area. A newly settled popular attraction, the Grand Berry Theatre at 2712 Weisenberger Drive, emerges as a showplace for independent and art-house motion pictures, complementing the mainstream Hollywood movies at Movie Tavern West 7th and

enhancing the art-film fare that the Modern Art Museum has brought since the early 2000s via its Magnolia at the Modern screening series. The Grand Berry is an early example of the expanding entertainment potential of the historic Foundry District, located north of Montgomery Plaza. Farther along to the west of the west, the newly dedicated Como Community Center’s $12 million complex at 4660 Horne Street has installed a gymnasium, a library, after-school activity centers, and all-ages activity programs. Luncheon attractions, sparked by the addition of Alabama-based Chicken Salad Chick in Ridglea Village, have grown to include such established draws as Blue Bonnet Bakery, Feastivities, Secret Garden Restaurant, and The Lunch Box. Wild Acre Brewing Co. has opened a Camp Bowie location to complement its downtown home base. A longtime popular favorite, Ol’ South Pancake House at 1509 S. University Drive, anchors the lower reaches of the west-by-south side and lends a sense of history to the immediate area’s dining opportunities. University Park Village, too, is rich in variety — a high-end shopping district offering such popular brands as Ann Taylor, Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Anthropogenie, and lululemon, among casual and fine-dining experiences alike, and the high-tech wonderland of the Apple Store. The Cultural District The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History commands the westward view of the district from Montgomery Street, and just northward are additional cultural touchstones: Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art houses a definitive collection of American paintings, photography, and sculpture. The collection spans early 19th-century art to mid-20th century modernism. It is also home to nearly 400 works by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Nearby is the Kimbell Art Museum still living up to Newsweek’s description as “arguably the most beautiful museum in America” including its new Renzo Piano Pavilion addition. The neigh8

boring Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest such museum in Texas — housed in a work-of-art 2002 building designed by world-renowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and featuring bold gallery exhibitions, concert attractions and, every weekend, leading-edge independentstudio films. The Museum of Science & History, anchoring a campus within the Cultural District, has been designed by similarly renowned architects Ricardo and Victor Legorreta. Inside the Museum of Science & History, one finds vast galleries of Texasbred dinosaur specimens and the state’s oiland-gas heritage, in addition to the Cattle Raisers Museum, the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, Stars Café, and the digital Noble Planetarium.The OmniTheater, an IMAX® superscreen dome, links with the Museum of Science & History and will reopen in the fall of 2022 after renovations. The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is next door to the FWMS&H. The NCM&HF honors women of the American West from those who lived and worked on ranches or who led an expedition, or sat before an easel, aimed a rifle and hit the bull’s eye, or sat on the Supreme Court. When the museum meanderings trigger an appetite for fine dining, two long-established, museum-based cafés stand ready to serve. The Kimbell Buffet Restaurant offers indoor or patio lunch and a light evening menu within one of the most beautiful modern buildings in America. The Modern Art Museum’s 250-seat Café Modern, with an outdoor terrace, overlooks a serene reflecting pond. The Modern’s full-service kitchen delivers superb cuisine for lunch, Sunday brunch, and scheduled seasonal dinners. Neighboring the museum community is the city’s landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center, a versatile 85-acre entertainment complex — with 45 acres housing the Will Rogers Coliseum & Auditorium. Its majestic Pioneer Tower dates from the Texas Centennial Celebration of 1936. Still a dominant feature within the district, the coliseum holds pride of place as the first domed structure of its kind in the world. The complex also boasts an equestrian center and exhibit halls, home to the annual Fort Worth Stock Show.


Showplaces of Heritage and Artistry and Nature Southward off University Drive, visitors can experience the glories of nature at Trinity Park, a pristine oasis bordered by a fork of the placid Trinity River. Here, picnickers, joggers, and strollers can explore meandering pathways or travel on a miniature railroad. Opposite the park, across University Drive, Fort Worth’s Botanic Garden beckons — the oldest such site in Texas, a lush 109-acre tapestry of dappled shade accented by vibrant splashes of color. The Garden is home to thousands of species of native and exotic plants in 21 specialty gardens.The Europeandesigned Rose Garden features more than 3,400 roses, and the 10,000-square-foot Conservatory houses tropical flowers and foliage from around the world. An on-site Gardens Restaurant serves light lunches and refreshments — with a view of the Garden and a varied gallery that often displays the work of local artists. Adjacent to the Botanic Garden is the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) whose mission is to “reduce

its footprint on the natural world as well as protect and restore ecosystem services.” BRIT’s building was designed as an example of how much of this can be accomplished. A short distance southward lies the illustrious Fort Worth Zoo, nationally ranked among the finest. The Zoo is home to thousands of animals, both native and exotic. Viewing facilities and natural habitat exhibits are set up for optimal views of the animals, often separated from their observers by only a river, a waterfall, or a large window. Shaded rest spots and picnic tables are available, with several on-site eateries. Across from the Zoo, Log Cabin Village offers another view of the city’s rich frontier history boasting seven authentic log homes, dating from the mid-to-late 1800s. Perioddressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin offering a living history of the home and its origin. The mood to explore might be triggered by art, dining, shopping, or the wonders of nature. Fort Worth’s west side meets all these interests and then some!

THE BISCUIT BAR - #TheBiscuitBar has finally come to Fort Worth, and I couldn’t be more grateful or, suddenly, hungrier. Located in the Stockyards’ hip Mule Alley, Biscuit Bar is the brainchild of Jake and Janie Burkett. After undergoing a personal family tragedy, in classic southern style they were showered with a bounty of literal comfort food. One item kept standing out and repeating itself, though: biscuits. So, the couple played with the idea of creating a build-your-own-biscuit bar at home, featuring biscuits made from scratch and lush toppings such as fried chicken, maple syrup, scrambled eggs, gravy, crispy bacon, and, of course, butter. Every menu item was created in the Burkett home kitchen, and the growing family decided to give the gift of comfort food right back to DFW. Come for the biscuits, stay for cocktails called “cereal sips” like their Cinnamon Toast Punch. Be sure to allocate time for a food coma snooze afterward. Sun.-Thurs. 8 a.m.-9 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 8 a.m.-10 p.m. 128 E. Exchange Ave., #640, www.thebiscuit.bar. CAFÉ MODERN - An exciting partnership with Wolfgang Puck Catering has brought seasoned veteran Jett Mora to lead the culinary team and bring his talents to take over Café Modern’s artfully crafted cuisine.

CATTLEMEN’S FORT WORTH STEAK HOUSE: Steak isn’t only for dinner- try the daily lunch menu! You can get a luncheon steak that includes a baked potato, salad and their famous homemade rolls. Start your meal off with a savory appetizer: “Shoot’em Up Shrimp,” crab cakes, calf or lamb fries, onion rings, and the list goes on. Cattlemen’s offers BBQ ribs, lobster, chicken, pasta, pork chops, and “The Old Texas Standby” chicken fried steak. Prime rib is served on Friday & Saturday nights. Cattlemen’s charcoal-broiled extensive steak selection has been called “the ultimate in a fine steak.” Steaks can be ordered with a variety of enticing sauces like teriyaki, cognac pepper corn, béarnaise, or gorgonzola. Seafood selections include lobster, jumbo shrimp, crab cakes, halibut, salmon, tilapia, and catfish. Top off your dinner with a homemade dessert: apple or pecan pie, cobbler, banana pudding, chocolate cake or New York style cheesecake. Private banquet rooms offer seating for 10

Eddie V’s Prime Seafood was inspired by the great classic seafood restaurants of New Orleans, San Francisco, and Boston. It offers the freshest seafood right off the docks, and USDA prime center-cut steaks aged 28 days and broiled to perfection. A sommelier is on hand to help you best complement your entrée, and of course Eddie V’s also has delicious, hand-crafted cocktails in the event you’re a “cocktail guy” like me.

ESPARZA’S - If you land at the DFW International Airport hard up for Tex-Mex, first of all, I understand you. Second of all, you’re in luck. Touted as “independently owned, internationally known,” Esparza’s is perched in the same town as the airport: Grapevine. Since 1985, the Restaurante Mexicano has served up delicious fare that includes Tex-Mex classics like enchiladas and tacos, but also innovations like fried avocado stuffed with brisket and an assortment of quesadillas, nachos, fajitas, salads & desserts. They have a patio strung with lights and call themselves “the margarita capital of Texas.” Enough said. Mon.-Thurs. 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 11 a.m.-11 p.m., Sun. 10:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. 124 E. Worth St., Grapevine, 817-481-4668, www.esparzastexas.com. HONKY TONK KITCHEN - Executive Chef Alex Walters brings a passion for authentic Texas cuisine and hospitality to Billy Bob’s. After attending Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, Chef Alex spent a decade leading culinary efforts across the DFW before joining the team at Billy Bob’s Texas. Serving as the banquet chef and sous chef prior to being offered the Executive Chef position, Alex poured his heart into bringing great food to patrons from all over the world. The food selections at Billy Bob’s are far greater than the restaurant’s name “Honky Tonk Kitchen” implies. In addition to the Honky Tonk Kitchen, Chef Alex oversees all culinary related business including the banquet operations where Billy Bob’s may host from 500-5000 in private events each week. Mon.-Wed. 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Wed.-Sat. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. & 6 p.m.-close, Sun. noon-close. 2520 Rodeo Plaza, 817-624-7117, www.billybobstexas.com/about/honky-tonk-kitchen. JOE T. GARCIA’S - When Mr. and Mrs. Joe T. Garcia first opened in their home to diners in 1935 there were 16 seats. Eventually, the famed Tex-Mex outpost has poured out onto their famous, twinkle-lit patio and now seats up to 1000. It continues to be family-run to this day, and the original recipes are still in use. Eighty-six years later, the fare and ambiance keeps people coming back in droves. While the lunch menu features things like chimichangas, tamales, soups, and salads, the dinner menu is succinct: sizzling fajitas or enchiladas. The portions are generous which is good, because the tequila to margarita ratio is, too. Great for casual nights and special occasions alike. Mon.-Thurs. 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. & 5 p.m.-10 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 11 a.m.-11 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-10 p.m. 2201 N. Commerce St., 817-626-4356, www.joetgarcias.com.


LOS VAQUEROS - The incredible Cisnero Tex-Mex family recipes of Los Vaqueros have fed this guerita since I was knee high to a grasshopper, long before I was old enough to have one of their incredible margaritas. Whenever I think about Los Vaqueros I smell the sizzling fajitas sailing past, see the never-too-busy-foryou staff smiling in greeting, and taste the perfect queso/ chip ratio. Located in an old Stockyards warehouse, the restaurant manages to be both cozy and cavernous, and is 100% authentically western. Los Vaqueros accommodates events (like my dad’s 50th birthday party!) as easily as they do a cozy lunch for two. Tues.Thurs. 11 a.m.-9 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Sun. 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m., closed Mon. 2629 N.

And everyone knows the Editor for Fort Worth Key Magazine is the authority on such things. More important than my unsolicited philosophizing is brandspanking-new Hotel Drover’s resident eatery 97 West Kitchen & Bar. Executive Chef Grant Morgan leads the charge on an adventurous dining experience with offerings described as “contemporary Texas fare, elevated ranch classics, and reimagined Southern comfort foods” (e.g., sweet tea marinated fried green tomatoes). 97 West Kitchen & Bar also offers an adult beverage curation composed of local spirits and an everchanging menu of seasonal drinks.

PRESS CAFE - Casual breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour, curbside cocktails/family dinner packs, and weekend brunch? Count me in. For all of it. Press Cafe’s extensive menu includes notables like crab mac n’ cheese, banana walnut waffles, ahi heirloom salad, and short ribs. All of their burgers are made/ ground in-house (including the veggie patties), and are just $10 during happy hour (Mon.-Thurs. 3 p.m.-6 p.m). Press is right on the Trinity, so when your day calls for some good, old fashioned contemplation and clearfork martinis while staring at a body of water, this is your place.

Ugh, don’t you love it when a bunch of hot millennial chefs open and operate an atmospheric, American West restaurant and feed you Skillet Cornbread with Whipped Honey Butter and Slow Smoked Beef Rib for Two, that you secretly try to eat for one? With the help of Chef Scott Lewis and Kellen Hamrah, Chef Marcus Paslay of Clay Pigeon and Piatello Italian Kitchen fame is at it again, this time in the Stockyards’ Mule Alley. The large outpost’s open kitchen specializes in meats either smoked or cooked over their wood-burning grill, all accompanied by an array of southern classics like their Pimento Cheese, Hoppin’ John, and Cheddar Cheese Grits. They have a robust liquor list and, given their location, of course they have a quality Moscow Mule on hand. But they’ve also got a little ditty called Golden Cheeked Warbler I have my eye on… Thurs. & Sun. 5 p.m.-9 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 5 p.m.-10 p.m. 122 E. Exchange Ave. Suite 110, 817-782-9170, www.provenderhall.com. REATA RESTAURANT - Choosing from the best that southwestern food has to offer, Reata (Spanish for rope) offers a menu that ranges from steaks to Creole

dishes to southern standbys like their West Texas Pecan Pie. An example for the first course is Reata signature jalepeño and cilantro soup. The main course could be pan-seared pepper crusted tenderloin with port wine sauce with sides like bourbon creamed corn and bacon wrapped asparagus. Finish your meal with a dessert classic or something new, like dessert tacos with caramelized bananas and chocolate gravy. Reata has a carefully selected wine list that complements its Texas cuisine and delicious cocktails like their Clear Fork Cherry Vodka Limeade.

MULE ALLEY - A fairy-light strung concourse inside of The Stockyards, Mule Alley is composed of barns that have been standing for over a hundred years, now gutted to outfit retail and restaurateurs aplenty.

Amanda and Matt, the creators of KIMES RANCH, have taken their fashion background to create a more thoughtful jean. With details like a special pocket for a knife, flattering pocket placement, and womenswear with a high enough rise to cover up while riding but not so high as to sacrifice style, they’ve managed to make the sartorially pleasing utilitarian. Yeehaw! 10 a.m.-8 p.m. daily. Suite 120, www.kimesranch.com. KING RANCH SADDLE SHOP was established in 1853, and boy is it tenacious. During the Reconstruction Era the ranch had to get back on its feet, and part of that was hiring in-house craftsmen to create their very own saddles. After mastering that craft, King Ranch output expanded into more leather gear, all branded with King Ranch’s iconic “W.” Due to legend-fueled demand, they began selling products outside of the ranch and King Ranch Saddle Shop was born. Suite 530, www.krsaddleshop.com. In regards to a classic outfitter in the Alley, look no further than LUCCHESE BOOTMAKER, home of your bespoke forever boot. It all started when Lucchese brothers Salvatore and Joseph emigrated from Italy to Texas, bringing their father’s cobbler legacy with them.

Dolly Parton famously pleaded, “Why’d you come in here lookin’ like that, with your cowboy boots and your painted on jeans, all decked out like a cowgirl’s dream?” I have a strong feeling her inspiration was the one and only WRANGLER.

There’s a lot to see, and University Park Village’s sleek façade and retail offerings make that Apple Genius Bar waitlist all the better. What do you mean it’s $150 for you to turn my phone off and on again? I’d much rather spend that at Kendra Scott. Mon.-Thurs. 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Fri.-Sat. 10 a.m.8 p.m. Sun. 12 p.m.-6 p.m., 1612 S.

Also, if you’ve been staying in and have become a bit of a self-made chef, you might consider upgrading your tools at Sur la Table. It’s pronounced sir-la-TAW-bluh, and I’m telling you so you can impress your friend Pierre. There is more info on Pierre in the West 7th listing below. My favorite place in Waterside, though, is Pinspiration. They have an ever-changing menu of crafts and DIY projects based on what’s trending on the internet that month. They also have a bar so, you know, you can buy rainbow pom poms and a beer. It’s a real one-stopshop. Bryant Irvin and Arborlawn Dr. Hours and phone numbers vary by store, so be sure to check the website: www.watersidefw.com/directory. WEST 7TH - From the historic Montgomery Plaza all the way to the latest place crowned cool by TCU students, there’s a lot happening on West 7th Street. This is the neighborhood where the fabled Domain XCIV is located, after all. You can buy small-batch, artisanal treats at Dude, Sweet Chocolate. This ain’t your stuffy friend Pierre’s chocolaterie in the 7th arrondissement à Paris, non. It’s better. Head to Esther Penn boutique for got-to-have-it clothes chosen by Texas women touched by sunny LA style. Stop by Wrare to discover avant garde homewares, and then swing by The Flower Market on 7th for a true-blue European cash-and-carry floral situation. You can make up a bouquet as you go with florists on hand to guide you along. Tout suite! www.fortworth.com/things-to-do/shopping/west-seventh. WESTBEND - One of Fort Worth’s newest multipurpose developments, WestBend is parked next to the Trinity River and filled with great food and, of course, shopping. At Dear Hannah, you’ll find adorable accessories like beaded rosé bottle earrings. They also carry dog toys like a stuffed “Lick Croix” can and the brand Stoney Clover, which is a pastel paradise of accessories like pouches and patches. Tyler’s has athletic wear, and Blue Mercury has skincare. I’m a poet, I didn’t know it, Warby Parker has designer glasses, revolutionarily priced for the masses. 1701 River Run.
