My parents moved to Fort Worth for about three years after they graduated from college. Being that it has been about 30 years since they lived here, they are always thrilled to re-explore their old stomping grounds. When mom came for her birthday weekend, she said she wanted to try something new. I took
 her to the West 7th District to explore and have lunch.

A cute boutique with a window display that said “Party like It’s 1912” caught our interest. The boutique was called Wrare. It was full of unique greeting cards, home décor and gifts. Definitely a must stop and shop for every vintage inspired shopper!

We ended up have lunch at Terra Mediterranean Grill. Located on the corner of Norwood and Crockett street, this is a charming restaurant. We loved the ambiance from the moment we walked in –modern feel with a bold color scheme. My mom has an eye for pick amazing things off a menu she has never seen! We ended up trying the zattar bread and baba ghanouj appetizers and split the gyros for lunch. Zattar bread is sesame seed bread covered with olive oil,fresh herbs, onion, garlic, tomatoes. Hands down, this is now one of my new favorite dishes! The baba ghanouj and gyros were also delicious; large portion sizes so come hungry or be ready for left overs! Needless to say we will definitely be visiting Terra again.

Fort Worth is a growing city full of new and exciting things to do, places to shop and restaurants to try – it’s definitely not the same old – same old!
