  1. "Bryan Caswell Suddenly Closes His Midtown Seafood Restaurant" by Eric Sandler on houstonculturemap.com
  2. MOMA is one of the finest modern-art museums in the world, accommodating 2.8-million visitors in 2016, which was #13 in the world that year. In Midtown, it houses such masterpieces as "The Bather" by Paul Cezanne, "The Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh, "The Dance (1)" by Henri Matisse, "The Dream" by Henri Rousseau, and many, many more.
  3. I was reminded of the goodness of W&M this weekend when a friend suggested it for dinner. I've gone for lunch in the past, and have always been happy I did. It isn't a cheap lunch, but their breads and pastas are top-notch, and should be your focus. For dinner, Cristina and I shared the pasta special of the day, duck confit stuffed pasta (I can't remember the name of the pasta, but it was kind of a fat tubular ravioli) in a sage butter, and the roasted carrot pizza. I've somehow never had a pizza here, but they do it right. Nice chew and char to the crust. They describe it as Neapolitan style, though I think it's a bit more substantial than that (no soupy center). My pizza came with thin slices of carrot, Fresno chile, and cilantro. The base used Point Reyes Toma cheese and a nice, rustic dukkah (that is, larger chunks of nuts, not super-finely processed). Great flavors and textures. Interesting cocktail menu, and a fairly extensive selections of wines by the glass. I didn't ask to see the full wine list, but apparently there is much more to choose from than what's on the main menu.
  4. MrB and I will be spending a long weekend in NYC in July. We used to go to NY fairly frequently, but haven't been in a number of years, so we're not up-to-date on restaurants. Looking for dinner, lunch and brunch suggestions for casual places as opposed to fancy. Preference for restaurants that take reservations. We'll be staying in Midtown. Would appreciate your suggestions. Thanks!
  5. If you happen to be in midtown Houston (adjacent to Downtown, Museum District, and Montrose), you could do worse than heading to the Mekong Center on Milam. While you could definitely hit one of Houston's top (maybe the top) banh mi shops in Les Givral's, I would recommend grabbing one of those to go after a lunch of home-cooked Mexican (like, real Mexican, not the delicious-in-it's-own-right Houston version of Tex-Mex) at Luna y Sol. Anywhere on the East Coast, this would likely be a relentlessly blogged-about and critically-acclaimed place. In Texas, it's good. Really good, but then, there are a number of these type of places tucked here and there, and everyone has their favorite neighborhood joint. You order at the counter from a fairly extensive menu, get a number, and have a seat. They charge for chips and a nice, aggressively-spiced red salsa that is served warm. The chips are on the thinner side and appear to be homemade. I would say it is worth the charge to get them, but many in Houston would get their pitchforks out and call for someone's head over charging for it. Enchiladas verdes were as good as they can get (which is very, very good), and could only have been better had the chicken stuffing been ever so slightly more moist. The salsa verde was mildly spicy and piquant...perfect degree of acidity from the tomatillos. Instead of drowning in cheese or crema, there was a restrained and appropriate dusting and squiggle on top. The charro beans were far from mushy, and simmered in a deeply-flavored broth that begged to be spooned over the requisite Spanish rice. I grabbed a bottle of hot sauce from the condiments counter but it remained unopened. That is a major compliment. As good as the enchiladas were, the highlight was an order of 2-bite al pastor "street tacos." These come 3 to an order, and are offered in a variety of meats and vegetables. Small, toothsome yellow corn tortillas topped with just the right amount of protein, finely diced onion and cilantro. The pork was excellent, with craggy bits of caramelization throughout. I'll have to try the rajas next time. No longer BYO, they have a good selection of Mexican beers, and make a mean michelada with whichever beer you'd like, and offer margaritas with a beer floater, though I can't speak to how good those are. There were a few other small Vietnamese joints in the mini mall that looked worth a visit, though there are approximately a million of those scattered throughout Houston as well.
  6. Heading to NYC to see Hamilton this weekend. Due to the cost of the tickets, I have approximately $38 to spend on dinner!!!! In all seriousness, can I get any recommendations for dinner somewhere in midtown that will be very good but not break me? Thanks in advance
  7. While out looking at open houses, I noticed what appeared to be an adorable, but closed, cafe on the corner of 12th and S. I discovered that's because they open for the first time Monday (17 December) morning at 7am. The Coffee Bar will be serving beans from Ceremony Coffee Roasters, LA's Handsome Roasters, and Batdorf & Bronson of Seattle. They'll be serving pour-overs from Hario V60 brewers, and pulling espresso from a La Marzocco GB5. The cafe looked really welcoming; pity the house I went to see already had a contract on it. http://www.thecoffeebardc.com/
  8. Hi All, So I'm planning to propose to my girlfriend in early March. I want to make dinner reservations for our families the night of the engagement for a party of 11. I don't think a private room is necessary, just somewhere relatively quiet in Union Square, Flatiron, or Midtown. Nothing too fancy, I was thinking something along the lines of Crispo at 14th and 7th. I feel like Italian always works well or American. Any and all suggestions welcomed!
  9. Heading up to MSG for fight night with my brother tomorrow. He's got his heart set on steaks and I'm struggling to figure out where we should go and maybe even find a deal (I know, too much to ask). Staying at 48th and Lexington, so anywhere midtown is fair game, but willing to travel if the times work out with still getting to the fight by 9pm. Thanks.
  10. Culture Espresso is a single location, midtown-based, very high-quality, coffee shop staffed by friendly hipsters. I know, contradiction in terms: friendly NY hipsters. Address: 72 W. 38th St Go figure. Among a sea of Starbucks in the coffee desert of Midtown is an oasis called Culture Espresso. Small shop with super beans rotated frequently. All the majors: Intelligentsia, Counter Culture. Stumptown, etc. Pour overs and a focused menu. We were told 3 or 4 different espresso roasts per week. Probably reminds me most of Filter in DC but even smaller than Filter. Also, unlike Filter, Culture allegedly has some excellent baked goods including some supposedly life-changing donuts from a Brooklyn producer called "Dough." Allegedly and supposedly because, since we tried it late in the day, they were out of nearly all the baked goods. American owned but the opening manager was Australian, which is why they have an excellent flat white on the menu. The cortado is one of the better ones I've had outside Argentina. Most amazing given the general New Yorker stereotype, the dudes working this place are both seriously knowledgeable and genuinely nice. We ordered a double espresso which came out at maybe an ounce or ounce and a half because it was a properly made double ristretto shot. When we asked about this, they immediately offered to pull another one for us without charge. Huh? In NY? When they did nothing wrong??? I'm sooo confused...in the best of ways. We didn't take them up on the offer. Wouldn't have been right. But damn fine joe made expertly in a part of the city not especially known for this.
  11. May have an hour or two to kill waiting for a train, and I figure no neighborhood can be worse than that around Penn Station for dinner. Maybe a bar seat at a decent/intersting spot where I can hurry up or go slow as circumstances permit?
