As Texans, we’ll admit that we can be overly proud of things like our state size and our sports teams, but I think we can all agree that we serve up some pretty mean barbecue. Juicy, slow-smoked brisket, tender ribs slathered in sauce, and more cheesy, buttery sides than you can imagine.
It’s still over a hundred degrees here in Texas, and I don’t know about you but I’m craving the crisp, refreshing flavors of seafood paired with white wines.

Known for its intimate dining atmosphere, Masraff’s on the boulevard is never one to disappoint! Resident Chef Dominic previews the ‘it’ item of the moment on their menu, the Ono Wahoo.
I recently discovered a small piece of heaven right here in the Texas Hill Country. A beautiful, scenic spot with a flowing river, breathtaking sunsets and a fantastic restaurant. Plus, you can stay for a day, a week…however long it takes to unwind and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Known for its beautiful patio with the relaxing waterfall and its sleek indoor decor (complete with floating fireplace!), Masraff’s on the boulevard always has something enticing. I was an instant fan with their garlic-seared calamari and their pristine white, delicious crab cake.
Have you ever gone back and revisited any of the restaurants you used to go to as a child…the places you liked as a kid? If not, seize the moment and do it! Now that I’m working in my hometown again, it’s great fun to go back to some of those old time favorites.
You might call Tony and Russell Masraff the “Dynamic Dining Duo” of the restaurant world. Masraff’s, their beautiful restaurant in its new location on Post Oak Boulevard, is one of Uptown’s most popular restaurants and for good reason.
If the stunning outdoor patio fountain at Masraff’s new location on Post Oak Boulevard doesn’t get your attention, the incredible food and ambiance inside will.
Food and wine lovers are gonna love this event! With five of Texas’ best chefs competing, a three-course tasting menu and fifteen wine and food pairings…how can you go wrong?
Haven is a little piece of heaven in Houston. The food is delicious which should come as no surprise. Chef and owner/partner Randy Evans was previously the chef at Brennan’s. Haven’s patio is truly one of the prettiest I’ve seen. Chef Evans sources local ingredients for his creative fare. This Texas strawberry salad is an example of fresh at its best.
A big thank you to our viewers who insisted we try Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen, a restaurant that serves eighteen different kinds of enchiladas! My first thought was there’s no way this could be good. After my first taste I was convinced—this is awesome!
Homemade jam is so much easier to make than you would think…and it adds the perfect bit of freshness to brunch. Chef John Armstrong at the Westin La Cantera makes jam with fresh Poteet Strawberries. It’s part of Francesca’s new brunch, which has a wide range of delectable items…starting at about $13!
Soft Shell Crab is now in season…and one of the best places to sample some is at the Fig Tree on the River Walk. This gem has THE most romantic patio in the city! And the new tasting menu is a great way to experience some fabulous food and wine, at an inexpensive price.
