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 [...]

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. 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 [...]

Neyow’s Houston

I had a foodie mission during Essence Festival this year.  Try all of the great black owned restaurants in New Orleans and I clearly was not the only one because they all had lines wrapped around the block!  Several locals told me Neyow's was a must stop.  Welp their line was around the block too.  I vowed to swing by on my next visit to New Orleans.  So imagine my excitement when I learned Neyow's planned to open a location right here in Houston!  I tagged along with some foodie friends for the soft opening this weekend and got a [...]

The Conservatory in Downtown Houston

Just thought I would drop by with a quick blog post for my followers who work downtown or nearby!  The Conservatory has been open for some time now, but if you are like me you are late to the party.  My cousins were in town from Missouri so I thought it would be a great stop that is unique to Houston.  Check out the rest of the details of the Conservatory in Downtown Houston below.

Eadeaux’s Food Truck

A few months back I introduced you all to a new group I helped form, the Black Blogger Clique.  Our aim is to create a collective of black bloggers who curate events and content that fits our key demographic, black women.  We are still in the beginning stages so bare with us, but we did recently host our very first tasting.  Other than being fabulous women of color, our other shared trait is food so a foodie event seemed perfect.  Eadeaux's Cajun Cocina Food Truck (black owned!) graciously hosted our group and provided us plenty of content to share! So [...]

East Hampton Sandwich Co.

East Hampton Sandwich Co. is coming in with a bang as it joins the Houston food scene.  They opened their first location in the ultra chic River Oaks District a few months back and have now joined Velvet Taco in a new retail space in Montrose.  I had the pleasure of visiting yesterday during their grand opening and of course I have thoughts below on East Hampton Sandwich Co.!
