The Kitchen at the Dunlavy

Houston spring is upon us!! The fact that by February we are back to sunny skies and 70 degree weather is why I will never trade in my hometown for a fancier model.  When the sun is shining I need to be out in the streets doing something and that generally includes eating.  On a Friday earlier this month, my co-worker and I stopped by the Kitchen at the Dunlavy for a quick lunch at this beautiful venue. Location/Setup: The Kitchen at the Dunlavy is part of the new Buffalo Bayou park along Allen Parkway.  The area includes [...]

Paul’s Kitchen

In this edition of Erika and Daniela (my co-worker) do a weekday lunch, we stopped over at Paul's Kitchen (PK) in the Upper Kirby area! Location/Setup:  You have probably noticed that Upper Kirby is one of my go to lunch areas and honestly a go to dinner area as well.  Developers packed so many great restaurants in such a small area that speak to my inner foodie! If you frequent this area, you may not have seen Paul's Kitchen because it is kind of hidden.  It's on a side street off of Kirby behind the Elevation Burger and Taco Cabana. [...]

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 [...]

Lunch at Kata Robata

A few weeks back my co-worker and I stopped over at Kata Robata for a Friday lunch out of the office.  Some fellow food bloggers have described Kata Robata's lunch specials as some of the best deals in town and I am all about cheap good food! Additionally, Kata Robata just so happens to be on the Houston Chronicle's "best of Houston" list so all signs pointed to this being a great lunch choice. The dining room The Setup: Kata Robata is right in the thick of Upper Kirby.  There is a parking lot for the shopping center [...]

Lunch at Tiny No. 5

Oh how I appreciate my co-worker and her commitment to new content for my blog.  Her and I brownbag it for lunch Monday through Thursday and come Friday when we have grown sick of Lean Cuisines, she drops by my office and asks  "Where are we eating?"  I in turn scour my list of places to try, shoot her over some options and then she reviews the menu for items that fit her gluten free diet and then we are off! This past Friday, Tiny No. 5, the second location of Tiny Boxwood's was our pick. Setup:  First off, can [...]

Lunch at District 7!

A few weeks ago I stopped over at District 7 for a workday lunch with members of my office.  District 7 has several locations. This time we went to District 7 in EADO.  Yes people, Houston is picking up the New York naming of neighborhoods. EADO=East Downtown.   This was my first time at this location, but I have been to the diner in midtown. Setup: The EADO location is cute  It is not as charming as the midtown location, which is styled like an old school diner. It is open late so it is super convenient for breakfast after [...]

Back at B&B Butchers!

I made it back to B&B Butcher's before Houston Restaurant Week ended as promised.  Frankly, B&B Butchers is a budget buster (say that three times fast), SO I needed the budget friendly Restaurants Week menu to indulge once again.  This time, my sister, mother and I went on a Sunday for lunch.  I will just touch on what was different about this experience.  For my full review, check out my last post. Service On my last visit, I was treated to a tasting menu with the Houston Food Bloggers Collective.  The service was impeccable, but they of course knew that [...]
