Bistecca Houston

Lunch seems to be the only time I am getting out in these Houston streets and trying new restaurants! Here I am again with another edition of my Friday work lunch.   This particular week, as soon as  I walked into work, both of my co-workers peppered me with "Where are we eating Erika???"  questions.  Ohhhh the pressure!! I checked a few national food blogs and happened upon Bistecca Houston Italian Steakhouse, a new restaurant in the Montrose area! The reviews were good so we figured we would take the chance! Setup: I have passed Bistecca a couple of times since [...]
