Dining Solo in Houston

One of my followers dropped me a line on Instagram and asked me if I had a list of places that were great to eat alone.  I actually did not, but my general rule is one person has the question there are likely others that do as well.  Plus it seemed like a good question.  So I decided to get some answers from my BGWB Instagram followers plus add a few places of my own.  A few restaurants were suggested by several of my Houston followers so it seemed like a great list to share on my blog.   Here are [...]

KP Kitchen

When you move to a new area in Houston, one of the first things you should do is find a good neighborhood restaurant.  Preferably locally owned with locally sourced food.  You know the kind where the owner is always present wandering about greeting guests and helping staff.  KP Kitchen is just that for those in the Memorial/City Centre area.  Owner Kerry Paul, aka KP, cut his teeth at Houston favorites like Benjy's, the Classic and Local Foods.  His experience at these great restaurants shines through in the setup of his restaurant, the elegant classic feel and of course the food! I [...]

Roots Wine Bar

The Original Hot Dog Factory Houston

If you are an avid watcher of Real Housewives of Atlanta like me you are very familiar with the Original Hot Dog Factory!  When Porsha introduced her boo, Dennis McKinley on RHOA some years ago, they also introduced us to his restaurant, the Original Hot Dog Factory.   The brand recently began franchising across the country with a new location arriving right here in Houston.  The franchise owners happen to be two Houstonian sisters.   I stopped by a few weeks back with my own sister to try out the Original Hot Dog Factory Houston.  Check out the details below! The Setup [...]

Kamp Houston

Despite the oddities that are 2020, restaurants are still opening albeit with less fanfare than years past.   The folks behind Prospect Park, Lost and Found and countless other bars/clubs frequented by Houston's black crowd have opened yet another bar in Houston.  This time, they have taken over the space vacated by Beaver's late last year to create Houston's newest bar experience, Kamp Houston. The Setup The clientele between Beavers and Kamp likely doesn't have much crossover so I am probably one of the few people who had the privilege of visiting both spots.  Both locations played up the outdoor theme [...]

The Classic Houston

I've been a fan of Benjy's and Local Foods since forever.  When the owners of these restaurants converted the Benjy's on Washington in to a new concept, The Classic Houston, I assumed I would like it as well.  The Classic has been around for awhile, butI finally got a chance to try it this week for lunch at work.  Here are my thoughts! The Location and Setup Can I get the decorator for this restaurant group to come decorate my house? Per usual the space is beautiful! Combining retro items that fit the diner concept with newer items works well [...]

Bellagreen Winter Menu

*Checks calendar* February is almost over which means we are officially two months in to 2020! Many of us started 2020 with new years resolutions or affirmations for the year.  I am sure those included being healthier, working out more etc.   I am no different, but also know I have to be realistic with myself.  Ya girl likes to eat out!  I've obviously built a whole brand around this.  As such, I try to find dining options that are good, fairly priced and do not load on the calories.  Bonus points if they deliver!  Well, a few weeks back I [...]
