February 2023


W hether your status on Valentine’s Day is “single,” “taken,” or “hangry,” the Taste Buds have the perfect dinner spot picked out where you and (optimistically) your significant other can enjoy a marvelous meal, high-quality cocktails, and fresh, homemade desserts this upcoming February 14. Look no further than Twisted Fork, Grill & Lounge, at 5522 Summerhill Road on the Texas side of our Twice-as-Nice city. Twisted Fork was a much-needed addition to the lineup of private dining establishments when it opened in the Four States area. The lounge and dining room each have a comfortable ambiance accented with vibrant colors and wood finishes. The cuisine is a combination of American and Southwestern influences—with a Twist, and weekly specials and seasonal menu updates elevate the regular menu’s flare! You can expect to enjoy dishes including fresh seafood, high- quality farm-raised beef and chicken, wood-fired pizzas, and a variety of scratch-made side dishes, all of which make Twisted Fork the perfect spot to spoil your significant other (or eat your lonely heart out) this upcoming Valentine’s Day. Not only does Twisted Fork offer high- quality appetizers, pizzas, and entrees, but Chef Bri Flanagan’s homemade desserts are not to be ignored. Chef Bri graduated from the Texas Culinary Academy in 2009 with a certificate of Le Cordon Bleu Patisserie, which is French for “you’re going to want to eat these desserts.” She utilizes her skills to create and customize beautiful cakes, pastries, and other delectable sweets that are available daily for a nice treat following your hearty meal. Seriously, you must get dessert because, is it even really Valentine’s Day without a little sugar? (wink wink) Given the vast, carefully constructed menu of available dining options at Twisted Fork, we (you can call us the Taste Buds) took to the streets (Summerhill Road) and made our way to Twisted Fork to enjoy our own pre-Valentine’s Day meal, and let’s just say, even Cupid would be proud. COCKTAILS Andrew —I started with a Twisted Fork original, Witchy Woman, comprising lemon juice, simple syrup, lime, and the key ingredient, “magic” vodka. If you are familiar with the Eagles’ 1972 hit, of the same name, this drink definitely makes a connection with that song... “sparks fly from her fingertips.” Kyle —I began my meal with a classic old fashioned from the cocktail menu, consisting
