That looks amazing. Is the cookbook somewhat easy to follow?


Pretty easy. I've done this and Lamburger Helper.

Coming in a week or two for a long weekend. We are meeting some friends at State of Grace one night. We have a couple of other dinners, so I'll ask anything you'd recommend?

I have a hard time branching out from Squable, or Trex, or Nancy's (if it's open).

Wish I could recommend something... they have completely revamped their menu since I went last.

Should have been more clear, any places you think we should hit up while there? We are staying in The Heights. We have hit all of Sheppard's and the spots I mentioned. Just wanting to see about some other favs.

You been to Nobies? 1751 sea and bar? But not sure if those have reopened.

Our LaTable? Backstreet Cafe is open I think. Caracol

NOBIES: Acclaimed Montrose restaurant Nobie's announced on social media that it will be closed after a member of its kitchen staff tested positive for the virus. The post notes that the employee did not interact with customers and that none of the restaurant's other employees have shown symptoms of the disease. Nobie's will undergo a deep cleaning prior to reopening and will maintain its practices related to health and sanitizing when it does.

Was announced this morning on the CultureMap Houston Website. This is a great site for updates on bars, restaurants and all kinds of stuff going on in Houston.

I def echo 1751 and am sad about Nobies...

Have you made it through Hugo's spots? Hugos, Caracol, Xochi

Some other favorites are Coltivare, Riel, Kata Robata.

I would toss in Bravery chef hall as well. some really good food options and is a great lunch spot.

1751 is a place we want to try so I think we will add that to the list. We haven't been to any of the chef hall places so maybe we will grab lunch at Bravery.

If you hit up 1751 I highly recommend the seafood charcuterie platter and a gin cocktail...

just listened to David Chang's podcast with Chris Shepherd on Ringer network. Very interesting for those interested in the restaurant world.

Thursday-we will play that buy ear when we get into town. Might do TRex or Squable. Or we might go try Hando, the house we are renting is a couple blocks away. Probably head to 8 road flint or BLT or Lai Lo.

Friday we are hitting up 1871 for dinner. Might grab lunch at Montrose Cheese and Wine.

Saturday we have dinner at State of Grace. My wife wants to hit Electric Feelgood sometime.

Sunday we have brunch at Lucille's before we fill the cooler at Costco then head back to the #409.

I'll post some pics.

FWIW, a'Bouzy has had amazing daily takeout specials since COVID-19 began.

The special today looks really good at a'Bouzy. Prime rib for two, horseradish sauce (dont need it) and loaded potatoes with a bottle of wine for 69$.

thought Superica had temporarily closed due to a staff person being infected? guess not!


gotta say, you are braver than I. those are all good spots and they are careful, but that's a lot of time indoors with strangers... I'm glad you are supporting them, though!

We did patios on all but Lucille at least 6-10 feet apart. Superica just opened up. They all limited seating and spacing.

We drove by some spots though that looked pretty packed.

I'll tell you in 14 days if this was a huge mistake. We wore masks, washed hands, took all the precautions we could besides just staying inside.

Went back to Superica Friday night. Wait was almost 2 hrs due to Covid requirements. The food was outstanding. Queso and beef fajita nacho app- nachos were outstanding.

Combo fajitas were very good.
