Early this summer I had the lunch-time culinary adventure of dining at Tricky Fish in Fort Worth. Tricky Fish is a tip-top casual dining experience created by the same culinary innovator that delivers Razzoo’s Louisiana-style meals.

Tricky Fish, the restaurant, is named after Tricky Fish the entrée at Razzoo’s. Whereas Razzoo’s is a slow-cooked, big-plate Cajun-style eatery with an emphasis on spicy fried food you would find throughout Louisiana, Tricky Fish focuses on made-from-scratch dishes with fresh Gulf Coast and Atlantic seafood that is grilled, blackened or sautéed. In fact, browsing through the menu selections, every category has non-fried options for those looking for healthier dining without having to do their own dishes afterwards.

The ambiance of Tricky Fish is casual with a warm contemporary vibe. Smooth curved lines grace the decor from the brick walls that have been “weathered” to salvaged oak-plank walls that still have the original nail holes to the oak palette tables – every detail intended to create interesting patterns that draw the eye. Make a note of the industrial-style neon fish display above the bar – lends a steampunk flair to the warm contemporary decor.
