“Hey. I’m texting you a photo of this cool house I run by every day on the trail. Do you know who lives there?” “Is that a new little hotel on the banks of the Trinity? When did that happen?” These are two examples of messages I’ve received from what I call my house spotters. They’re people who are out and about frequently and can spot a story possibility from a mile away. The house off of White Settlement Road is not part of a traditional Fort Worth neighborhood. It’s barely visible from the road but can easily be seen by those who use the Trinity Trails. During construction in the colder months, the bare trees left it open to wider scrutiny. Fortunately, we didn’t have to leave a note or sleuth out the homeowner. It turns out we do know who lives there. You can’t deny Fort Worth restaurateur Lou Lambert’s good taste. The details in his past homes and restaurants speak for themselves. And we like that almost everything he owns has a story. We invite you to check out his river house on Page 38. Just wave nicely at Lou next time you’re on the trail. We watch the Instagram feed of animal opthalmologist Brian Cichocki with great interest. Dogs, cats, horses: All seem to benefit from his surgical skills. Is there anything better than making a pet owner cry when you tell them everything is going to be all right after surgery? We spend a morning with the animal doctor on Page 22. Yasmin and Braden Wages already operate a pair of successful restaurants, one in Dallas and one in Southlake. But they could not resist the lure of opening a third Malai Kitchen in Fort Worth. Malai is but one of many new restaurants opening in The Shops at Clearfork, which finally is filling up with tenants after a quiet summer. We look forward to getting our mango coconut fix in the coming months. In the meantime, meet Yasmin and Braden on Page 76. Andrea Karnes long has been a fixture at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, having grown up there careerwise. With the departure of chief curator Michael Auping, the talented Karnes was tapped. She is an incredibly busy person, but we caught up with her over a glass of wine at Press Cafe. Between work trips, she talked about her vision for the future at the museum. We love what she has done in the past and can’t wait to see what she does in the future. Page 90.
