Here's a tribute to some good restaurants of Houston's past. Among them, of course, my old favorite Bistro Moderne.
Speaking of Bistro Moderne, in this review of Max's Wine Dive, the author casually mentions that the ex-Bisitro Moderne chef Philippe Schmit (misspelled in the article) is opening up a new restaurant soon! What big news to tuck away! More information must be coming. For the record, Max's Wine Dive is good (maybe not as good as Block 7), but is old news nonetheless.
Lastly, quirky Houston things. I've been wanting to go to the Beer Can House.
