Brennan's in Houston isn't in the same league as CP in Nola

I don't go often but my last couple of visits to Brennans were pretty underwhelming


They have a new head chef. I forget who but he was from one of the underbelly places.

Young Chef Kevin Nederin doing some good work with middle eastern flavors

Everything was super. Andy the server was top notch and so friendly to chat with. I had:

1. fried cauliflower, scallions, toasted pine nuts, miso dressing, bonito flakes

2. Low-country shrimp n' grits- Jumbo Gulf shrimp, Waco white grits, andouille, crawfish gravy

3. Coffee n' donut holes- Nutmeg donuts, crushed pistachios, dulce de leche, coffee ice cream

Also came with a draft beer as part of the $55 menu.

Wife had:

1. Same cauliflower app

2. Angus flat iron steak Panang, Thai spices, long beans, trumpet mushrooms, turmeric rice

3. Chocolate and cayenne milk shake with dipping fries dessert. Sounds funny but was really good.

Don't dress up to go there. Real casual table setting and old chairs my dad would find uncomfortable but I didn't care. Only about a dozen tables total. Felt like a little Italian family joint, not too loud.

They are changing the menu up big time in the next couple of weeks. Will go again! So full.

Had brunch on Sunday with all the kids at Toasted Coconut. If you like a casual option with really good cocktails, I highly recommend!

Seems nearly impossible to get a weekend evening reservation there in the dining room unless a month + out. Dorsia.

Sunday night at 7:30 place was packed.... they are doing well

IMO, food has improved over the past 9 months and service is just top notch

Looks like a slick chain is opening tomorrow in Uptown. They have many locations in Canada, a some in LA, and a few in Seattle, and Houston is getting their first entry into Texas.

Joey UPTOWN opens July 28

Let me know how TRex is.

We have Squable Friday night and Bludorn Sunday night. We are going to go to a drive in Saturday and I think they have some food trucks.

I think we will hit Candente for lunch Friday.

I can't get too excited about a fancy chain.

Rosies was very good. Not blown away though. Would like to go back again sometime.

Focaccia, wine list, bean salad were all really excellent.

Service was incredible. Certified somm help was nice too.

Octopus was fine. Not a great char on it. Think the state of grace octopus dish is wayyy better. Pizza was good. Nothing I'll be raving about to others though.

Desserts were average at best.

Will try again.

Hit Candente yesterday for lunch. Had the birrira tacos and loved them. Everything was great.

Squable for dinner. Every dish was great. Low key banger was a bean dish with Greek flavors and fired feta.

Probably my #2 spot in Houston. I always enjoy it.

Just got back from Houston with our friends from St. Louis.

Friday Lunch-Candente-loved it. I have never been but will be back.
Dinner-Squable-Always great. Dutch baby with grilled peaches, Greek beans with fried feta, and a pasta that was almost like a Cesar salad in a pasta.

Sat-lunch at Harold's in the heights. Dinner was a foodtruck at Moonstruck Drive-in.

Sunday brunch was a Superica and Dinner was at Bludorn, which I think might be my favorite place. Squash blossoms, gnocchi, truffle risotto, and the burger and the lobster pot pie. baked Alaska and flourless chocolate cake.

Monday- lunch at Ra Sushi and Dinner at Reil which is awesome. Second time to go and everything was spot on. Snapper crudo, burrata with grilled peaches, perogies, fried cauliflower, empanadas, caviar tater tots, and more. All was just outstanding.
