Eats Beat: Love New Orleans-style at Ellerbe

by Bud Kennedy   Valentine's should not be limited to one night. Some restaurants, such as Ellerbe Fine Foods in Fort Worth, always seem like Valentine's. The Louisiana-influenced restaurant features a short, ever-changing menu of a couple of steaks and seafood, but it shines most at New Orleans-style dishes involving shrimp, seafood or a bread pudding like none other.   At lunch, it's a bright and...
