I did indeed see your post about Chef Love.
As far as local eateries are concerned, here is a list of a few of my favorites. . .
-- Chicken -- Hands down Babe's (the Roanoke location) is the best fried chicken you will ever put in your mouth. The biscuits are also very good (heavy as a rock when you pick them up, but light as a feather in texture and mouth feel - add some honey or sorgum to one of those hot out of the oven little puppies and you are in heaven). I am also impressed that their creamed corn is actually creamed corn (as opposed to corn niblets with sauce added).
-- BBQ -- Cotton Belt BBQ in North Richland Hills is one of my favorite local BBQ places. It is located in an old railroad building and really has an authentic feel to it. The BBQ is very good. If you want something really great, ask for one of their Baked Potatoes (limited availability) and have it loaded all the way (including chopped brisket). This is a meal in itself.
-- Sushi -- Cowtown Sushi in Southlake is one of the best sushi places in the metroplex (in my humble opinion). The sushi chefs really take the art as well as the freshness and the flavor of their sushi very seriously.
-- Unusual -- Chef Point Cafe in Watauga is a restaurant featuring great burgers, rack of lamb, and lobster bisque on the same menu. This place has quite the local following. It's worth going there just to say you've been. Oh, by the way, did I mention that this restaurant is in a GAS STATION, now you know why it has the buzz that it does.
-- Middle Eastern -- Cafe Medi in Hurst has solid Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food and they also have a patio for enjoying some hooka (one of your foodie goals if I remember correctly). They have good naan there and they have one of my all time Middle Eastern favorites - Fool (a favorite for breakfast in Egypt).
-- Mexican - Unfortunately, I have not found the perfect independent Mexican restaurant here locally that I can recommend.
-- Latin -- Gloria's in Colleyville is a great El Salvadorian based local chain with great food and awesome drinks. Their margaritas and mojitos are solid. I really like the warm black bean dip that they bring along with salsa and chips when you sit down. Their pupusa's are great and their other authentic items are very solid.
As you can tell from this short list, I am very much an independent restaurant patron (which is unusual given my professional ties to corporate restauants).
Hope this helps.

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.
