The Lazy Moose is Loose
By Celestina Block | Fort Worth Star Telegram | March 1, 2017
With its taxidermy-adorned walls, dark leather seating and lodge-worthy brick fireplace, the Lazy Moose provides an atmosphere unlike any other on the hip West Magnolia Avenue restaurant and bar scene. A collaboration by Lili’s Bistro owner Vance Martin and David Shaw of Shaw’s Patio Bar & Grill, the venue is first and foremost a cocktail lounge, featuring handcrafted libations like the blood orange and basil martini and the charred pecan-infused “moose drool” old fashioned. But don’t miss the bar menu, which is anything but typical. Sharable plates include crispy Brussels sprouts tossed with pecan brittle, green chili polenta fries and gargantuan “moose wings” marinated in lemongrass and Thai curry sauce. Sandwiches range from tenderloin, pear and Gorgonzola to a soft-shell crab bahn mi. Patrons can visit late night for drinks, bites and, acoustic music.
