Elk, Kangaroo, Rabbit 'n' Rattlesnake: Lonesome Dove

Chef Tim Love describes his Lonesome Dove as "urban Western cuisine."

Pretty apt description. Be prepared to wait, even if you have a reservation. It's a very popular destination and with good reason.

It's not surprising that Chef Love defeated Iron Chef Morimoto in Battle: Chiles. The man knows his way around spice. There was no lack of flavor this evening!

Lonesome Dove will please any meat lover. Put it on your to-do list when in Fort Worth.


  1. I'm amused because the decor totally looks like what I'd expect in Texas, especially with the bull's horns. I'm not sure if I'll ever find myself in Fort Worth, but this would surely be near the top of my list.

  2. It's funny to me that this is considered Western cuisine, because the only place I've ever had elk, kangaroo, and rattlesnake was in the Catskills!

  3. i wanna go. i'm sure the bear would love it w/all that meat and spice.

  4. Roasted garlic stuffed beef tenderloin. YES.

    But I love Morimoto!
