Hip, New Spots to Chow Down in H-Town!

Two of the fresher faces in Houston’s restaurant scene stole the show this morning on KPRC! Both have fantastic chefs to boot. Say hello to Field & Tides and Fielding’s Rooster! We paired their cuisine with wines from H-E-B, including one white that will leave you ‘spellbound’ for Monday’s Total Solar Eclipse!


Field & Tides:

Located in the historic Heights neighborhood, the menu is more a mosaic of Chef Travis Lenig’s many culinary influences. There’s the massive Szechuan Peppercorn Crusted Tuna Loin with a chili honey glaze, served over coconut rice, as well as bite size beauties like Chef’s Pimento Cheese Fritters with pepper jelly and Crispy Fried Oysters and Brussels (an absolute knockout!) that are not to be missed!

Wine Pairings: Josh Cellars Chardonnay ; Spellbound Chardonnay


Fielding’s Rooster:

I adore all of the Fielding’s restaurants. This latest inception in The Woodlands sees Chef Edel Goncalves at the helm for all things chicken! Fall for his Chicken Liver Mousse Pâté with tarragon mustard and bacon jam on rye toast. Or, the majestic Rotisserie Chicken cooked over Mesquite wood in-house, using Chef’s signature spice blend, plus white toast, spicy pickles and charred lemon.

Wine Pairing: Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon


Special Announcement:

Our TV series, Goodtaste with Tanji, returns for a brand new season to KPRC on Sunday, September 17 @ 5:30 AM. Set your DVR! We’ll be broadcasting statewide for the very first time — more details here!

can you include our surrounding areas? The Woodlands, Tomball, Richmond, Pearland? Maybe you can add a correspondent to do some restaurants in those areas. They are all HEB areas.

We have reunions about once a year and we meet in those areas so noone has to travel too far (except, of course, for those coming in from out of town)
