    February 19, 2019
    Eschewing the more scientific name of “crayfish” for the more down-home “crawfish,” Houston’s crawfish season is like a nonstop party from January to July. Eaten by Native Americans for ages, after The Great Expulsion of 1755, French Acadians from the Canadian maritime provinces arrived in Louisiana desperately missing their seafood staple, lobster.

    January 31, 2019
    Forget that tired cliché that French restaurants are stuffy and pretentious because this uptown location offers all the class without any of the attitude. Located in the trendy BLVD Place development near the Galleria on Post Oak, French-inspired La Table fits right in with the high-end stores that populate the area but is neither judgmental nor stingy. With a distinction between the upstairs and downstairs dining spaces as clear as Downton Abbey, La Table has two main dining spaces that
