Bravery Chef Hall

I am obsessed with food halls (our fancy phrase for cafeterias) and downtown Houston is feeding my obsession by continuing to add new food halls!  Currently, we have Conservatory, Finn Hall, Understory and now Bravery Chef Hall.  I have been to them all and would recommend them all for different reasons.  Most recently, I stopped by Bravery Chef Hall a food hall located at the bottom of the Aris Market Square Apartments.   While the basic concept is similar, Bravery Chef Hall features restaurants curated by chefs making their offerings a step above others.  Check out my experience during a lunchtime [...]

What to See in Charleston

Whenever I would say I wanted to visit Charleston people would ask me why?! It was not New York City, or LA or even Miami what was the attraction?  Well... it all started with a little television show called Southern Charm (do not judge me!).  I watch just about everything on Bravo so this show was no different.  From the show, I learned how beautiful Charleston is.  I did a little more research and learned more about all of the African American history in Charleston and decided that I MUST GO! I shared with you what I ate, but now [...]

Postino Wine Cafe

It took Postino Wine Cafe opening a second location in Montrose for me to finally visit.  Trust it was not for lack of trying.  Ever since Postino opened their first location in the Heights, I have been trying in live my best life on their patio!  Well since it has remained popular since opening, I could never snag a table.  So please know that I was SO excited when I received an event to the soft opening of the Montrose location!  I finally got to see the hype about Postino Wine Cafe.  Check out my experience below! The Setup At [...]

Brunch at Whiskey Cake

Y'all, I did something I rarely do! I traveled out to the burbs for brunch! This trip just so happened to be to Whiskey Cake which I have heard nothing but great things about.  I was beyond excited to try it, so much so that the drive down I10 didn't even seem that bad.  For this foodie adventure, I grabbed foodie friend Bridgette of Bits 'n Bites for a Saturday Brunch at Whiskey Cake! The Setup Okay y'all know I judge restaurants out in the burbs.  They all look the same and lack character.  Whiskey Cake definitely breaks the stereotype!  The [...]

Strato 550

As you all know, a good venue for me comes with good vibes and scenery.  Lately, that generally involves good views of downtown or a rooftop.  In Strato 550, I found both! I caught a work lunch at the downtown restaurant during Houston Restaurant Weeks.  Not only is their food great, but the views are some of the best in the city.  Here are the details! The Setup Located in the 1415 Louisiana Building, Strato 550 calls the top floor home.  After ascending to the 43rd floor, patrons will first encounter the meeting rooms.  Strato 550 doubles as a conference [...]

THE Houston Itinerary

Neo Baguette

I know you guys love a low-key, best kept secret spot as much as I do!  I recently discovered a new one, Neo Baguette located in the Heights.  The setup and cuisine is enough to make this spot not so secret soon enough. Check the details of my lunchtime visit below. The Location and Setup After receiving an invite from the team at Neo Baguette, I decided to make a lunchtime visit during the work week to try it out.   I took Main Street all the way from downtown to the Heights and made it there in no time.  Perfect [...]

So listen, you know that I eat out a lot.  My dining adventures are what led you to this here blog! As you can imagine, this is not the easiest lifestyle and the deeper I get in to my thirties, getting summer time fine ain't as easy as it used to be!  In fact, I am always on the hunt for great dining experiences that do not overdo it on the calorie intake.  That is what I have always counted on Seasons 52 for, good dining experiences that are portioned well and dare I say healthy?  So when Seasons 52 [...]

Guide to Taipei

I am back from my first visit to Asia and of course I have so much to share!  I had the privilege of traveling to Taiwan for work.  Since this was not a personal vacation, I did not plan out my own itinerary or do much research before heading to Taiwan.  With that, I really went in to this trip with no expectations and that honestly made the whole experience better!  I compiled the highlights of my trip in to this one LONG post as a Guide to Taipei! What to See & Do Taipei 101 Once the largest building [...]
