  • Where's the Tea? Places for Afternoon Tea Credit: @gigantfotos
    May 10, 2019
    Tea is commonly culturally associated with the British, known for the ritual of afternoon tea or a hot morning cuppa, but Texans also take their tea very seriously. Sweet tea is distinctly southern, a must-have for social gatherings, and it’s even more essential in the sweltering months of summer. A Texan tradition filled with nostalgia is making sun tea, a method using the heat of the sun to draw out the flavors in the tea leaves. All you need is some black tea, sugar, water, and a glass

  • Brunch is a DRAG Credit: @BarBoheme
    April 29, 2019
    There’s something slightly magical about nighttime, like a vaseline-covered movie lens from the 1920s that acts as a proto-Instagram filter and beautifies everything in sight. The sparkle and spectacle of drag shines bright at night, but if you haven’t seen drag during the day, you’re in for a treat. Bounding between the booths and picnic tables at Boheme , two queens perform a duet that leads to a standing ovation along the entire back patio. With the sun beating down on...

  • Brunch of the Month: BB Lemon
    February 28, 2019
    Located on Washington Avenue, BB Lemon , the cozy sister restaurant to the masculine B&B Butchers , is Benjamin Berg’s new restaurant that is brightening up the Houston restaurant scene – and no, not just because of the neon yellow sign out front. Like an old-school lemonade stand, there is something refreshing and nostalgic about BB Lemon upon first glance.

  • Who's Your (Craw)Daddy?
    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. Settling for seafood that's not even from the sea, crawfish became a seasonal delicacy that trickled along...

With a distinction between the upstairs and downstairs dining spaces as clear as Downton Abbey, La Table has two main dining spaces that
  • TLC: Tender Loving Chili
    January 15, 2019
    It may be surprising to some that Texas’ state food isn’t barbecue, tamales or seafood, but chili. And although we can debate whether chili should have beans or not – it shouldn’t – there is nothing more satisfying than thick, savory bowl. So, grab a spoon and dive into a bowl at these joints while the Houston weather is still a little chilly.
