The Adolphus Hotel boasts this beautiful French restaurant, featuring a daily High Tea menu with Champagne and still wines by the glass thanks to Coravin Sparkling & Timeless Model 3. Turn up in your best for caviar, scones, and finger sandwiches, and head to the French Room Salon for enjoy a 42-piece art collection including contemporary drawings, collages, photographs and paintings from a variety of Texan artists.
Executive Chef Curtis Stone showcases his Aussie roots at this upscale Dallas steakhouse. Georgie’s uses the Coravin Sparkling, Pivot, and Timeless Model 3 to offer an extensive wine-by-the-glass menu to accompany the diverse slate of dishes. Keep things light with a la carte oysters and Champagne, or opt for the indulgent with the 3- or 5-course tasting menu with optional wine pairings.

4. Tre Mogli Cucina Italia
This new Italian hot spot in Fort Worth by Chef Stefon Rishel is the fourth concept in the Trident Restaurant Group portfolio. Meaning “three wives” in Italian, the name is a tribute to the restauranteurs and their families. Here, all wines are poured by the glass poured using a Coravin Pivot and offers a robust list to pair with the traditional and coastal Italian-inspired cuisine. Try delicious appetizer options like the Cacio e Pepe fritter or opt for family-style entrees like the Veal Scallopini or Bolognese (regulars rave that the homemade pastas shine here). Happy Hour in the two full-service bars is daily from 3-5pm – don’t miss it!
5. Ellerbe Fine Foods
This Fort Worth farm to table fine dining staple since 2009, showcases fresh local and seasonal ingredients in a non-stuffy, relaxed environment. An extensive wine by the glass menu is consistently evolving thanks to the Coravin Pivot, Coravin Timeless Timeless Three, and Coravin Sparkling. Chef Molly McCook was a 2020 James Beard Foundation Semi-Finalist, and has developed a menu perfect for vegans, vegetarians, and meat-eaters alike. Menus are rotational – including the wine list. Enjoy widely-enjoyed options and small-production, rare varietals curated for the wine novice or enthusiast. For the latter, Ellerbe also offers a service called “White Glove, Purple Teeth” which includes in-home wine cellar organization packages, on-premises wine classes and tastings, and other concierge services. Keep an eye on the menu, and make this a frequent stop in your restaurant rotation.
