NOLA Poboys

A few weekends back myself and some blogger friends were treated to a tasting at NOLA Poboys!  While Houston isn't New Orleans we have a our fare share of restaurants claiming to do New Orleans staples well.  Just about any Houstonian will name off their favorite of those restaurants and tell you what they do well.  With that in mind, I was eager to see what NOLA Poboys had to offer especially after I learned that this spot was New Orleans implant. Setup and Location The owner shared with us the plans for expansion throughout the Houston suburbs, but for [...]

Cirque Du Soleil has made their triumphant return to Houston with their new show, KURIOS- Cabinet of Curiosities!  It sounds mysterious enough to pique my interest.  As always though there is a food plug here!  Local paleo restaurant, Ruggles Black decided to join the fun and create a menu based on KURIOS! I along with a group of my favorite bloggers previewed the special menu last weekend.  Keep reading for my review and more information about Cirque Du Soleil's stay in Houston. THE FOOD So let me start out with this note.  I am familiar with Ruggles Black, but avoided it because "paleo" [...]

March Madness at Russo’s Pizzeria!

It is officially MARCH MADNESS!!!  I have a fun deal from Russo's Pizzeria to share with you, but first lets talk sports! Did you make a bracket? Did your team make it to the big dance??  Can I just say, I LOVE March Madness.  During my college and law school years my school (Mizzou) was often a contender for the big tournament.  For me, there is not a college championship series more fun that basketball!  I was generally an avid watcher until a couple of  years ago when my school lost in the first round to a lower seed.  IT [...]

Grub Burger Bar Lighter Fare

Last week I stopped over to Grub Burger Bar for a tasting of some of their lighter fare! I have been to Grub Burger Bar many times before and somehow managed to never add it to my blog until now.  Do not take this slight as an indication that I do not like this spot, cause I do, so I was glad when they invited me out to for a tasting.  So this time, I am making sure that share ALL the fun details with you all. Location/Setup Grub Burger Bar is located in the heart of City Centre in [...]

Potente and Osso & Kristalla

Whenever I discuss Houston with people from the east coast or midwestern cities like Chicago, they pepper me with questions about our downtown and the fact that it's not really the hub of night time activity like their hometowns.  I share with them the sad story of what once was, the Main Street strip of clubs and bars which are now boarded up.  Then go on to how the crowd moved to areas like Washington and Midtown.  All while thinking how it's kinda sad that our downtown night life kinda sucks! Well guess what Houston, a revival is happening! Riding [...]

Eloise Nichols Grill & Liquors

As you guys can imagine, I eat out a lot (no judgment please).  Sometimes life gets crazy and I am unable to blog about all the places I've eaten immediately, so I am currently playing catch up.   A few weeks back, a college friend invited me out to dinner. We decided on Eloise Nichols Grill & Liquors because we had both heard great things but had never been!  Once I heard that Eloise Nichols was owned by the sibling duo behind Adair, I knew I had to go! Location: So my friend and I both thought that Eloise Nichols [...]

Healthy Options at Hopdoddy!

The start of the new year means #NewYearNewMe for a lot of folks.  For us foodies, common new year's resolutions are vows to cook more, eat out less and of course eat healthier.  With those pledges our favorite food spots get dumped at the start of the year and we only come back once our resolutions are forgotten.  Keeping this in mind, the good folks over at Hopdoddy invited me to come back out and try the other side of their menu, the healthy side! Menu! The Details I have been to Hopdoddy before and blogged about it [...]

Thanksgiving at Fleming’s

Has anyone else noticed the extreme rush to get to Christmas this year? I saw full out Christmas decorations before Halloween!  It such a pity too because Thanksgiving is a great holiday especially for the foodies!  The last few years my mother has conned me into cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the rest of the family.  That process takes a lot out of you! For those looking for additional options that do not involve slaving away in the kitchen, Flemings Steakhouse will have all of their locations open on Thanksgiving Day offering a four course meal.  Plus, all the wine will [...]

Peli Peli Kitchen

A couple months back I attended a watch party to cheer on the Houston restauranters behind the Peli Peli concept as they competed on CNBC's Restaurant Startup.  Using the Shark Tank format, contestants compete for an investment to start a new restaurant.   During the show, the team presented a fast casual option to their widely successful Peli Peli restaurant.   The team won the competition and began preparing to open their new concept, Peli Peli Kitchen!  In preparation they also hosted a pop up kitchen earlier this summer which I attended and thoroughly enjoyed.  Now as they open the first Peli Peli [...]

Shake Shack is HERE!

Guess what guys, Shake Shack is here! Shake Shack is here!!!  Well, almost! This past weekend Shake Shack hosted a pop up at Pass and Provisions  to get Houstonians excited about the new addition to the Houston burger scene.  In a few weeks, Shake Shack will take up residence in the newly remodeled Saks 5th Avenue wing in the Galleria.   I got a chance to stop by the pop up last weekend and here are my thoughts. The Food: The menu was a "give them a small taste" type of menu with only a few options.  For example they did not [...]
