We can allow you to come if your daughter can get us a free dessert.

I'm sure that can be arranged LOL

Went to Ostia last night. Service was a bit uneven, but the food was really excellent.

It is a large dining area, so pretty easy to get table at last minute if anyone ever finds themselves in need.

If yall want to go to Ostia, let me know and I'll set it up.
I'm in Houston this week but after that will be basically gone until the second week of August.

I could probably do second week of August. Will have to check the schedule. That's probably close to the end of me leaving the house for a bit though. Wife might be interested in going. She's a bear.

I think the meal I had there in May was the best I've ever had, all in all. the current menu I definitely prefer over their opening menu.

I had snagged a rezy at Rosies already as a backup. Just curious what others thought. I can't afford March.

hard to beat Rosie's...check out Ostia in that area or maybe Squabble in Heights.

Going to Le Colonial. She's been a couple times and raves about it. I've never been. Thanks for open table heads up.

It was excellent. Had a small corner booth in the back of the restaurant so we both had a great view. Food was really great.

I heard about Nino and Vincents a month or two ago. Made me sad, ex wife and I went there on one of our first dates, how fitting. Both closed after being open too long.

Mandola fam will make a killing on that property sale. Used to love Ninos but haven't been in about 10 years. Think I had my first birra moretti there in high school.

I would love to hear the real reasons he left/was forced to leave.

I am not real confident that Underbelly can be the same without Chris. Several of his key chefs have left recently. The move away from Westheimer.

I bet in 5 years after a noncompete runs out we see him in the kitchen again.

I'll be in Rockport this weekend if anyone has a suggestion there. Staying with some friends that moved there a few months ago so probably won't have much of a say but you never know.
