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 [...]

Third Coast

Earlier this week I dined on a delicious five course meal with wine pairings at the brand new Third Coast, formerly Trevisio! Nestled right in the thick of the Texas Medical Center, this restaurant offers doctors, business folks and patients alike a fine dining experience right in the area that they work.  Our event started with an introduction from the President of the Texas Medical Center Dr. Robert C. Robbins introduced us to the brand new restaurant Third Coast! Once we realized we were no longer going to be feasting on the typical Italian meal that was standard at Trevisio, we [...]

Hopdoddy Houston

Hopdoody joined the Houston food scene a few months ago and I finally got a chance to stop by!  I visited Hopdoddy during an Austin trip last year and grabbed a burger to go due to the long line.  I blogged about that trip here, but since Hop Doddy is now in Houston, it is worth sharing about the Houston location. On this occasion, we were looking for a spot in the River Oaks district to fill up on some real food before we indulged on gelato over at Amorino.  We figured Hopdoddy's burgers and fries would do the trick! [...]

Revolve Kitchen + Bar at Hotel Derek

Hey friends! I am back at it again with a dinner review of Hotel Derek's Revolve Kitchen + Bar.  I had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant for the Houston Food Blogger Collective monthly dinner.  Here are my thoughts: Location and Setup: Hotel Derek is one of Houston's premiere boutique hotels located in the heart of the Galleria.  The front restaurant has had many lives as the hotel has tried to determine what fit best for their guests!  The current version is Revolve Kitchen + Bar which focuses on high end food in a relaxed setting.  The name Revolve comes [...]

Fajitas A Go Go Review

I had a few friends in town this weekend for Beyonce's hometown concert.  I do not care what anyone says, I will never pay to see her anywhere but Houston! This was my third Beyonce concert and the best one yet. At the end of the concert, she signed off by saying she was going to get some good food.  I thought awww Beyonce is a foodie like myself! By Monday the internet was ablaze with the restaurants Beyonce graced with her presence over the weekend.  After the concert, she jetted over to BB's Cafe, a 24 hour spot that specializes [...]

Jerry Built Burgers

Yes, this is another review of a burger spot in Houston, but you are going to like it!  Houston has a lot of burger spots and will soon add national favorites, Hopdoddy and Shake Shack.  I am slowly eating my way through all of the local favorites and only blogging about the ones I really liked.  Trust, all of the places I eat do not make it on the blog or my social media accounts.  I am still sticking with the "only positive experiences make it to the blog" rule! Anywho, last week I had the pleasure of attending a Houston [...]
