A Glimpse at Houston Restaurant Week

Houston Restaurant Week is halfway over, and it's a great way to go out and try new restaurants that you just haven't found time for in the past year. Lunch is a marvelous way to sample some of the city's better places, like Mark's. It is well worth checking out this year. An interesting menu is particularly inviting at lunch -- $20 for two savory courses. And Mark's is home to an early front-runner for best dish of Restaurant Week: the corn souffle with caviar.

uh-oh. I've been taking HRW off this year due to budgetary constraints & my inability to decide where to go, but this just might draw me in...corn has a strange power over me.

Service was sub-par last Thursday night. The manager approached to see if anyone had spoken to us yet after we had been sitting there for a solid ten minutes. Also had to ask for spoons for bisque. Very odd for one of the top restaurants in H-town.

You seem to have a passion for food, so I was wondering if you have a some healthy recipes of your own that you make. If you do, you should send them into this contest I know of that’s making its way around the country, the Aetna Healthy Food Fight. It’s coming to San Antonio on October 2-3 and Houston on October 9-10! I noticed your blog and thought you would be interested. You could get great exposure for your recipes and meet celebrity cooks (Bobby Flay, Sunny Anderson, Sara Moulton, or Cat Cora). All you have to do is go to healthyfoodfight.com to submit one of your healthy recipes. Deadline to sign up for San Antonio is September 15th and Houston is September 22nd so hurry! Good luck if you decide to enter, and if not, keep posting! :)
