Davis St. at Hermann Park Featuring Chef Holley

A few years ago, Houston lost two great black owned restaurants Holley's and Davis Street at Hermann Park.  As I have traveled this year, I am learning that Houston is lucky in that not only do we have a plethora of black owned restaurants, but they also run the gamut in terms of restaurant type.   For example, we have high-end celebratory kind of restaurants that are also black owned.  Holley's and Davis Street fell in that "when you feeling fancy" category of a restaurant so I was sad to see them go! Well this year, in 2019, the owners behind [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.

Houston Neighborhood Guide Pt. 1

I jokingly bragged about the excellent Houston tour I gave to my cousins last year and received so many requests to share the wealth!  I love my hometown and take great pride in showing it off to out-of-towners.   Many people do not know much about the city outside of NASA, Beyonce and our sports teams.   So I consider this a challenge and I must say most of my visitors go home with a new appreciation for the great city of Houston. As I started to think about how I can share my guide, I realized this deserved several posts.  I [...]
