Taste Community Restaurant

1200 S Main Street, Fort Worth TX 76104
$$ New American Recommended Editor's Pick

Taste Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit established simply to feed people one community at a time. One of every six Americans faces the reality that they may not be able to provide for their next meal. There are programs in place that help; however, in Tarrant County, 36 percent of this food insecure population live above the poverty level and receive no government help. Our mission is to feed, educate, and serve our community so they may “…taste and see the Lord is good.” Psalm 34:8. We believe everyone should have access to healthy nutritional food. Our vision is to see our community become the solution to the challenges our community faces as it relates to hunger. Our first project, a non-profit restaurant, focuses on healthy, quality meals made from fresh ingredients. Our menu has no prices. This is a give and take concept. We ask guests to do one of the following: 1) pay what you can afford. 2) pay what you would typically pay. 3) pay what you would typically pay, plus a little extra.

It was a pleasure to dine at Taste. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We love the concept of paying what you can and we could see that some could not afford to pay at all but still had a wonderful meal. A wonderfully lovely act of kindness.

Everything is always great at Taste! I made reservations for Mother's Day and had to expand them when other family members were coming to town, and the reservation staff was so helpful. I rated 8 for Ambiance because we had a difficult time hearing each other due to the echo.

The food was delicious and staff are always friendly and courteous. I took my niece and her 14 month old son. Surprisingly they had a sippy cup for him to drink from as well as a high chair. I'll be going back again.

Someone re filling waters and drinks. Like an extra person doing only that might help the wait staff concentrate on the food and orders during the busy lunch hour. At the very least, refilling the waters.

Other than the Egg Benedict being a little cold ( which I know can be a challenge) , everything was great. Especially the Mexican Chocolate Pot au Creme.
