Situated on trendy West Seventh Street, Brownstone prepares gourmet renditions of Southern standbys, serving small-but-filling plates in an airy, elegant dining room. Executive chef and former Top Chef star Casey Thompson weaves fresh ingredients into rustic starters such as the squash casserole spread, a blend of warm winter squash and creamy cheese served with toasted country bread ($11). For dinner, guests can outflank hunger with the American flat-iron steak, presented alongside pan-fried potatoes and creamed kale ($22). Friday afternoons welcome lunchers with soups, salads, and savory sandwiches, such as the pork "filly" with sautéed onion, poblano marmalade, melted cheese, and chili-dusted, house-made potato chips ($12). Sunday brunch openly continues Brownstone's torrid affair with comfy-yet-sumptuous eats, projecting passion through flapjacks slathered in apple butter and Texas honey, two farm-fresh eggs, and house-cured maple bacon ($11). Patrons can let a light breeze toss their lettuce on the eatery's open-air patio or make themselves at home on the plush sofas of an antique-chic library.

Brownstone is the result of award-winning designer Hatsumi Kuzuu's vision. Combining the expertise of the restaurant visionaries at Sameni Entertainment Group with the innovative architecture of her own imagination, she's given life to an airy, 5,000-square-foot space that crackles with convivial energy. As patrons fill the air with the din of friendly conversation or watch HD televisions from the comfort of their residential-style seating, the waitstaff ferries plates packed with forward-thinking takes on American cuisine. Juicy Angus burgers topped with fried eggs, cuts of chicken-fried steak, and delicate sea scallops seem right at home amid the din of friendly conversation. A well-stocked bar encourages diners to linger at tables on the open-air patio long after plates are cleaned, socializing while sipping on the specialty cocktails that were named some of the best in the city by reporters from Fort Worth CVB.
