Fleming’s Steakhouse New Menu

In Houston, we have the privilege of having several GOOD steakhouses around town.  With so many choices sometimes it is hard to pick where to have dinner and then you forget some good ones.  Well may I put Fleming's back on your list especially if you have not been there recently?  I have been a fan of Fleming's for years and was super excited to learn they shifted to a chef driven menu recently.  I had the pleasure of attending a causal tasting with my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends a few weeks back.  Keep reading for all of the [...]

Pinkerton’s Texas Pit Barbecue

I feel obligated to start with this whenever I write a blog post about Texas Barbecue.  I am originally from Kansas City, Missouri therefore I see KC Barbecue as the pinnacle of good barbecue #dontdebateme.  As such, I am typically iffy about trying out barbecue spots here in Texas despite all of the hype and praise.   Well a few months back, I had a sample of Pinkerton's at the Houston Chronicle Culinary Stars event.  It was a small brisket slider on a jalapeño bun, but it won me over enough to at least stop by.  So I did just that...

Earlier this week, I visited Kulture with a group of food blogger friends.  Kulture is a new restaurant in the convention center part of downtown, owned and operated by Marcus Davis, the owner of the Breakfast Klub.  Now, the Breakfast Klub is truly a Houston institution, so I was eager to visit this new concept! In short, as the name implies, this restaurant is the epitome of "For the Kulture!" The Location/Setup Kulture took up residence in the Avendia Houston building which connects to the new Marriot Marquis Houston.  With a prime location, Kulture will certainly pull the after work [...]
