Scratch & Sniff: Tim Love’s Woodshed Smokehouse, new Fort Worth Restaurant


maria's camp bread

hmmm...looks like Tim Love is a working chef

the dining room is an airy space with simple tables

great outdoor seating area

live music on the patio every weekend night. Good bands, too.

"todays animal" gets spit roasted. This one's goat

long-time Tim Love employee Maria makes fresh tortillas

indoor dining that spills out to the open courtyard

opening day brought a few protesters who don't like that the city developed the river banks with a restaurant

nice menu, biodegradable wine glasses

chef/owner tim love (nice guy, too)

yep, it's fort worth, not dallas

yep, low and slow

bbq essentials (i snuck in to the smokehouse)

smoked cauliflower with evoo, lemon, chile arbol

brisket stuffed piquillo peppers with cotija, bone broth

"today's animal" on opening day was goat, plus sides of salsa, cotija, key limes, tortillas

maybe it's wine?

Bourbon-and-coke pork "bahn mi" that's nothing like a bahn mi

Chef Tim Love’s new Woodshed Smokehouse, on the banks of the Trinity River in Fort Worth, is off to a great start. I visited on opening night to see if the early buzz was right. It is.

Nice place, cool riverside setting, good vibe, interesting menu (even if you’re a vegan). The guy can cook, too. Almost everything is imbued with a light touch of wood smoke (mesquite, hickory, oak or pecan). I’ll have more to say about this place after a few more visits, but my first impression: Go.

(Your best bet: Sunday Supper, where Love says he’ll throw down a big buffet with grilled and roasted meats and veggies for just $20.)
