After more than a decade on the Fort Worth restaurant scene, husband and wife duo David and Ann Shaw founded Shaw's Patio, Bar & Grill. Within their eatery’s dark, wood booths or on the outdoor patios, guests dine on gourmet burgers, sandwiches, salads and gourmet hotdogs.These menu staples start as lean Angus beef patties and quarter-pound, all-beef franks, and they emerge from the kitchen transformed into specialties including the andouille-topped ShawSauge burger or the chili-cheese dog. Regionally inspired paninis such as Texas Grilled Cheese, a mix of warm Brie sandwiched between slabs of Texas toast, gain their stripes on the grill rather than by bartering with zebras. Shakes and malts hand-spun from Blue Bell Ice Cream pay wholesome complement to the diner fare, while a full bar that flaunts more than 40 beers and a family margarita recipe provides more grown-up refreshment. As the sun rises on Sunday mornings, a hearty brunch decks tables in chorizo and egg burritos, eggs benedict with portobello mushrooms, and fruit-laden French Toast, all paired with a parade of complimentary mimosas.
