Open your imagination at Masraff’s in Uptown: consistently one of the highest rated restaurants in all of Houston. I love this place! Sommelier Ben Roberts recently shared some of his picks for winter cocktails that really wow this holiday season…plus five-star fare to pair with.

One of the best restaurants in all of Houston managed to take me out of my comfort zone…and I had a BLAST! Incredible food at the chef-driven Kata Robata, but it’s their sake I found to be so sensational. Beverage Director Steven Salazar was my guide through three exciting food pairings.
Peli Peli Chef/Owner Paul Friedman has a sparkle in eyes, a twinkle—he stands out! I first met him at a Woodlands Wine & Food Week event this summer. That night he won the Chef of Chefs Award for a delicious dish he prepared from South Africa, his native country…
Unbelievable food at this iconic Houston lunch spot… grocery store — the list goes on! Here you’ll find “nothing small, nothing healthy, and nothing fast.” We sat down with mother-daughter team Jessica and Shelby Prior for the scoop on their famous, made-to-order hamburgers, loaded breakfast plates as well as the recipe for one of their daily specials, a kickin’ King Ranch Chicken…
There’s a beautiful ranch in West Texas producing an incredible lamb product you’ll find in some of the finest restaurants in San Antonio…Boudro’s and Zinc for starters! All-natural lamb seared to a golden brown, cooked in red wine and deglazed…a juicy shank with little to no fat!
One of Houston’s most popular delis has brought back their famous Chicken Pot Pie! Kenny & Ziggy’s creation is as big as that ‘other dome’ in Houston (it easily feeds two very hungry people) and has just as many fans. Flaky, golden domed chicken pot pies made from scratch! Deli maven (owner and chef) Ziggy Gruber makes the pies with his own twists to a special Eastern European recipe…
This particular meeting was a real treat for me. I first met Sommelier Rajat Parr at RN74 in San Francisco — one of my very favorite restaurants anywhere. His book, Secrets of the Sommeliers, is an excellent guide for anyone with an interest in wine, no matter your experience level or familiarity.
Wow! That was my reaction to a cocktail that’s almost too good to be true. Master mixologist, Rosie of Masraff’s on the Boulevard has struck gold again with her Pumpkin Pie Martini…it’s so light and captures the best aspects of pumpkin all around!
How many times have you found yourself in a business meeting, dreaming of a lunch like this? Too often if you ask me! The French Corner Catering Company has redefined ‘gourmet’ for on-the-go…and your options are almost endless. Delicious entrées, tasty sandwich platters, breakfast specials – you name it, they can make it.
One of the most sought-after vegetables on many menus this holiday season takes center stage for a cooking demonstration with Executive Chef Ojan Bagher. Sysco Houston is supplying butternut squash peeled, cleaned and seedless ready to cook! It’s the perfect dish for fall and Sysco does all of the work for you…

Now here’s a popular restaurant that I’ve been coming to since Day 1: Stone Werks. Three locations around the Alamo City (Lincoln Heights, The Vineyard, and The Rim) together share an impressive history…over twenty years of serving San Antonio! They’re also a longtime Sysco customer.
Steak fans are in for a HUGE treat. One of the most highly acclaimed barbecue spots in all of Texas (maybe even the country) played host to an old fashioned charcoal cookout — with a culinary celebrity! None other than noted American culinary writer, TV host, and most recently novelist, Steven Raichlen. The best part? Goodtaste came away with a recipe…
