High Tea at Radio Milano

Radio Milano boasts a modern Italian menu with a hip bar space downstairs.  They have taken their modern spin a little further with the introduction of a Modern High Tea.  So think of it this way.  You probably had a tea set as a kid and imagined yourself enjoying a fancy tea with friends once you grew up.   Radio Milano took that vision, modernized it and included some important aspects, like cocktails!!! Check out my High Tea at Radio Milano experience below! The Location and Setup The main dining room. Radio Milano is a two story restaurant nestled in [...]

Desserts and Cocktails at the Tasting Room

I thought I'd stop by for a quick post about some great additions to the Tasting Room menu! Just last week, I stopped by the City Centre location to feast on their best desserts and cocktails.  Best of all, they were fall inspired.  Yes, it was completely a sugar rush, but it was WORTH it!  Check out my post, Desserts and Cocktails at the Tasting Room for all of the details! Cocktails Infused Plums You may think of the Tasting Room for their vast wine selection.   While this is true, they also are killing the game when it [...]

Does anyone else have a hard time finding good happy hour spots in Houston like me?  It is one area that I am often asked about that I cannot provide a long list of options for unfortunately.   So when restaurants hit me up to alert me to their happy hour and meal deals, I get super excited and even more excited to share with you all! In this happy hour edition, I am sharing all of the fun details from my Oyster Mondays at Riel experience! The Setup I have a thing for neighborhood restaurants.  They always feel more quaint [...]

The Caddy Shack

I am back with another review of a Houston spot!   Before heading to New Orleans for Essence Fest, a group of my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends and I headed to the Caddy Shack on Washington to enjoy a media tasting of their menu items.  Here are the highlights! Setup and Location You have probably passed the Caddy Shack before and may not have noticed it.  The Caddy Shack is located right in the thick of things on Washington across from B&B Butchers.  It's a smaller non assuming building, with the name Caddy Shack emblazoned on the front of the [...]

Chapman and Kirby

A few weeks back it seemed like 90% of my non-blogger snapchat friends were all at some new spot called Chapman and Kirby.  It was packed, the party looked funny and somehow my invite was lost in the mail!  I did some investigation and learned that Chapman and Kirby was a new bar in Houston's EADO (East Downtown).  I made a note to come to visit at my next opportunity and report back here for others who were late like me! The Setup/Location Chapman and Kirby is anchoring the revitalization of East Downtown a former industrial area.  If you have [...]

FM Kitchen + Bar

Houston foodies collectively mourned the closure of Triniti late last year.  Those tears were quickly calmed once the masterminds behind Triniti announced that they would be opening a new concept, FM Kitchen + Bar near the Washington Corridor before Summer 2017!  This past week, I had the privilege of visiting FM Kitchen + Bar before the grand opening.  Check out my experience below! The Setup FM Kitchen is located at Shepherd and Washington right behind the original Max's Wine Dive.  Somehow they managed to nab a location with a parking lot.  That alone will keep folks coming in!  From the parking [...]

Cinco de Mayo at Molina’s Cantina!

Just in time for Cinco De Mayo, I am recapping my visit to Molina's with my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends!  I grew up in Houston and thought I had visited all of the Houston Tex Mex staples, but somehow I missed Molina's!  Prior to our event I learned that Molina's has been a family run business in the Houston area for 76 years.  Staying in business that long in a city like Houston where the restaurant landscape is constantly changing deserves praise in and of itself.  With this in mind I was eager to see what Molina's was all about! The [...]

Happy Hour At Sambuca

We are all internet friends right? So I can be honest with you here.  Here is the truth, a couple of years ago I went to Sambuca with my foodie group and HATED it. The food, the service, everything.   I found my way back there a year or so later and thought it was better, but still no cigar.  I kept these experiences in mind when Houston Food Blogger Collective received the invite for Happy Hour at Sambuca. Look, I'm all for second chances when it come to restaurants.  Matter fact, it was a second chance that led me to fall [...]

Crawl for the Culture

This St. Patrick's day weekend I decided to hop in a time machine and go back to being twenty-one. You know the period of your life where calories do not count, bedtimes do not exist and hangovers are what older folks complain about. Who did I think I was?! At the very least I have fun stories to share with you. Since Friday marked St. Patrick's day and I decided I was twenty-one again, that meant I had to hit the streets!  After a crazy fun night in midtown, I woke up to do it all over again with the Crawl for [...]

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 [...]
