Hello Houston! Goodtaste is here to help you navigate some new places and flavors of fall. Get ready to try this new(ish) to town restaurant in The Heights that is serving brunch all day, Mastrantos. This family-owned gem has an open kitchen and a pasta lab, that’s right, a lab, to make the freshest pastas! Next up,Tanji shares her latest fab fall (and beyond) find, Eunice. They have a kicked-up menu with a major splash of NOLA from their chefs roots for the new dishes on the fall menu. Things like Duck Gumbo served with a warm potato salad and a side of Duck Poppers and Pear Cider. For more on fall menus and flavors check-out the full segment here!
Tanji’s Fall Fav Wine Picks:
This first wine, A- Lo’s Pumpkin Brûlée, is actually not a wine but a pumpkin spice liqueur and is of course the perfect fall sip to pair with your coffee for a kicked-up latte. $16
Next up, Tanji is a big fan of Chardonnays and clever white wines for any season. This Macon-Lugny Les Charmes Chardonnay is a beautiful white which pairs with just about anything and can even be found in a lot of restaurants, a nice light compliment to deep fall flavors. $17
Finally, this “big red” wine is called The Stand and it takes a stand on Tanji’s list of reds. This is a Paso Robles blend mixed with both Syrah and Viognier, and in this case you can judge a wine by the label. This label is handmade by John James Audubon and is about as beautiful as the wine tastes. This very bold flavor is a perfect match to the fall colors and weather. $26
