Amorino Gelato

  I make a point to keep an eye out for all the new openings in Houston River Oaks District.  Since opening last fall, River Oaks District has become home to Houston's premiere luxury stores and restaurants. After visiting the district's inspiration Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, I am even more convinced of the district's luxury creds! Back to the issue at hand, Thursday marked the opening of another exciting River Oaks tenant, Amorino a Parisian based gelato franchise brought to Houston by a Parisian couple! Some of you are probably thinking gelato? Blah blah blah! I can just grab Talenti from [...]

The Morning After – A Brunch Event

Beignets The best way to recover the morning after a fabulous night on the town is to head to brunch with a group of friends.   These brunches usually include a recap of the previous evening's festivities, good food AND mimosas.  The Houston Press took this concept and turned it into a great event, smartly called The Morning After- A Brunch Event!  On October 1st, Houston brunch lovers will be treated to food and cocktails from all the best Houston brunch spots including my all time favorite spot, Max's Wine Dive!  There are other great editions such as [...]

Springbok Houston

Time and time again I find myself trying a cuisine or a restaurant that I would not have tried prior to becoming a food blogger. Springbok on Main Street is the perfect example of this!  A few years back I was invited to happy hour at Springbok.   After a bit of googling, I discovered that Springbok is a restaurant/bar specializing in South African cuisine.  Ignorant old me wanted no parts of that and declined the invitation.  Fast forward to now and I am currently the events chair for the Houston Food Blogger Collective.  Our group was invited to a [...]
