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 [...]

Killen’s Barbecue and Tailgating

I have proclaimed my love of Kansas City barbecue on this very venue a many a times.  I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge that the place that I currently reside is also known for being home of the best barbecue in the country as well (I only acknowledge Texas, Memphis and KC for this accolade!).  When I mention that I have a food blog there are certain places that people always ask if I have visited, Killen's in Pearland usually tops the list.  When I say that I have not been, there is initial shock and then [...]

Buffalo Bayou Brewery

If anything, this blog has forced me to be more adventurous when it comes to my foodie excursions.  I am always looking for new and unique content to keep things fresh around here.  Over the weekend, my friend invited me to Buffalo Bayou Brewery with a small group of his co-workers.  Not going to say that I leaped at the chance, because I am not a beer drinker, but after giving it some thought I decided that it may be worth the trip. Location/Setup: Buffalo Bayou Brewery is located off of I10 about a block or so away from the [...]

Old Chicago Pizza and Tap Room Katy

So last week I did a few things that I do not typically do.  I went to a franchise restaurant in the burbs *gasps*  Hear me out before you hit the unsubscribe button though.  After being invited a couple of times to check out the new Old Chicago location in Katy, I decided to take their team up on their offer.  Their enthusiasm about Old Chicago was contagious so I broke a few of my normal Black Girls Who Brunch stipulations and tried it.  Plus I had fond memories of splurging on meals at Old Chicago while in college in Missouri, [...]

Fogo de Chao

With this blog, I like to highlight local restaurants or smaller franchises that are unique to Houston.  I am breaking that rule for this post, because my experience at the new Fogo de Chao in the Woodlands was too exciting not to share!  Fogo de Chao invited all of the members from the Houston Food Bloggers Collective to dinner on a day of our choice at the Woodlands location. It was such a great experience, for the reasons described below. Location/Setup:  Initially, I was reluctant to accept the invitation because the Woodlands is such a long drive.  By the time [...]

Pico’s Restaurant

In this edition of Black Girls Who Brunch take on the Houston Chronicle’s top 100 list, my co-worker and I took our Friday lunch trip to Pico's Restaurant in Upper Kirby.  Pico's is a Mexican restaurant that attempts to recognize the different cuisines from the seven regions of Mexico. The Setup: Pico's is right in the mix off of Kirby and Richmond making it an easy trip for most inner loopers.  Pardon my ignorance regarding Mexican architecture, but places like Pico's always put in my the mind of the Alamo.  Inside of the restaurant sticks with that theme with some [...]
