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: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
