Jenny,
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.
Doug

Jenny,
I read some of your entries on makingafoodie.com. Anyone who speaks fondly of Babe's Fried Chicken is OK in my book.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

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.
