Dinner at Kitchen 713

Whew! Let's get back to the business of restaurant reviews shall we? While I worked on my event, I still tried some new places that I want to share with you!  Last week, I revisited Kitchen 713 for a tasting of their new menu items including dinner items and cocktails!  Now, I do not typically post on a restaurant several times, but considering that Kitchen 713 is in a new location and my last post was about brunch, I figured this deserved some attention.  For all of the details about setup and location check out my last post.  To get a [...]

BGWB Event Recap!

I am still floating from yesterday! My brunch event, Brunchin' with Black Girls Who Brunch went SO well.  Here is a quick recap.  After much encouragement, on June 10th I hosted my very first brunch event at Harold's in the Heights!  Myself and 39 other ladies met/networked, sipped mimosas, had a photoshoot and dined on good food!  Here are all the dets from the brunch! My Outfit *Puts on fashion blogger hat for two seconds*  I loved my outfit! I stepped out of my norm and went for the princess look. The shirt of course was a Black Girls Who [...]

Biskit Junkie

I spent last weekend running errands related to my upcoming Brunchin' with Black Girls Who Brunch event! I seriously cannot wait and find a way to bring it up in just about any conversation.  Anywho, with any food blogger you run a few errands and you are quickly plotting on a food stop as well.  Biskit Junkie happened to be in the vicinity and since I'd never been, I quickly decided it was a good idea.  Keeping reading for all of the details of my experience! The Setup So I am going to keep it real here about my experience [...]

Breakfast Brunch Cafe in Cypress

Yes, you read that right, Breakfast Brunch Cafe IN "Cypress."  I actually ventured past the loop to try a brunch/breakfast spot out in the suburb.   Of course there is a backstory!  So I grew up in Cypress which is partly why I have a love/hate relationship with it.  My parents still love it and as retirees spend much of their time trying new spots.  A couple of months ago my parents RAVED to me about a new black owned breakfast spot out by them.   "Oh you must try it!" they told me.  My response of course was, I [...]

Brunchin’ with Black Girls Who Brunch

I am so excited to share with you all, that I have officially planned my first brunch event, Brunchin' with Black Girls Who Brunch! With a name like Black Girls Who Brunch many folks have assumed that I host events.  The look of disappointment every time I said "no, I just brunch"  got me to thinking.   I put the idea in the back of mind as something I should do sooner than later.   The problem though was planning an event required me to step out of my comfort zone to create an opportunity for BGWB!  Funny thing is [...]

Brunching in Kansas City

You may have noticed I go to Kansas City, MISSOURI (not Kansas) often.  I was born there, have family there and went to college nearby.   Recently, I spent a few days in KCMO to celebrate my cousin's birthday.  My trips to KC are usually filled with family dinners and stopping by my favorite KC restaurants like Gates.  I try my best to squeeze in some new spots when I go for the sake of the blog though.   On the off chance that your life ever randomly takes you to Kansas City, I want you to be fully prepared [...]

Etta’s at Bar 5015

So, you may have noticed that I included Etta's at Bar 5015 on my most recent brunch list.   Well here is thing, I actually had not been there yet!  I honestly included it based on reputation and my previous experiences with Etta's!  But I felt like a poser, and that ain't me!  Last weekend, I finally gathered a group and we visited Etta's at Bar 5015 to see what the hype was about. Setup/Location Here is the important thing I want to be clear on, this is a PARTY.  This is not a brunch restaurant where you sip mimosas [...]

Where to Brunch for Easter in Houston

Next Sunday is Easter Sunday, the holiest day of the year for Christians as we celebrate the resurrection!  As a kid I remember getting dolled up in bright spring colors, having my hair straightened and heading to church to celebrate the holiday.  Once at home, our Easter breakfast and subsequent dinner were usually more elaborate than every other Sunday meal, with a ham or roast and desserts.  Now, we the increased popularity of brunch I imagine my mother would have opted for that instead!  It seems to me that a brunch after Easter service goes hand and in hand.  With that [...]

French Riviera Bakery and Cafe

Guesssss what?! I found my very own authentic French cafe, French Rivera Bakery and Cafe, right here in Houston!  Well okay, I did not find it.  Several friends and fellow bloggers had encouraged me to stop by for some true French pastries right in my "backyard."  I finally made it by a few weekends ago for a quick breakfast.  Here is a quick post sharing my experience. The Setup Apparently the current location is an upgrade from a previous spot the restaurant occupied for decades.  The newer digs has it's own parking lot which is great, but let me tell [...]

International Waffle Day – Grand Lux

I live for a food holiday because I am GREAT at celebrating those! This Saturday (March 25th) happens to be International Waffle Day and as you can imagine a brunch connoisseur like myself is excited.  In preparation for Saturday's "holiday",  Grand Lux invited me out to try their chicken and waffle dish assuring me that it rivaled the best in the city.  Check out my review below! Location If you have followed me for awhile you know that I am a self admitted snob who typically frequents local spots.  I will turn my nose up with a quickness at a franchise [...]
