I will look forward to this. The above is a free site - on the pay site, if you can get to it, he mentions Allison Cook’s encouragement when he was here before.

Detroit-style pizza joint Via 313 opening in Memorial City in March (msn.com)

I’ve only had Detroit deep dish at Pizaro’s in Montrose. I love it. I don’t think they ever added it at their original location in the Memorial area.

Live lobsters, A5 wagyu star in Asiatown’s newly debuted Shabu En (msn.com)

Oh, how this makes me yearn for the days when I could go anywhere I wanted to eat and eat as much as I wanted! (If the place is a good as the review, I think it’ll get crowded pretty soon).

23 hot Galveston restaurants for tourists, locals, families (chron.com)

I’ve been to very few of these, haven’t even heard of many (we’ve never attracted a good Galveston participant on HO). No mention of Gaido’s, the Tremont or Galvez? Times are changing!

Katie’s seafood market was previously recommended by the late, much missed jcostiones, I think (or was that you @Lambowner?) So the restaurant is on my list to try. Shrimp 'n stuff doesn’t really cut it for me. La King’s is a fun stop. Leon’s is not high on my list. Maceo’s - a fun stop but the muffaletta I got was not impressive compared to others around the area. I’ve never been able to get into the Mosquito Cafe - closed both times I tried. And I think I’ve been to Sunflower but the dish I had is not on the menu so maybe I’m remembering some other place. If they took it off the menu, good for them - it wasn’t done well :astonished:

Pizza wars? Who cares? The pies at the new Magdalena’s are terrific. (msn.com)

Well I missed it again - can’t make it this afternoon. Saw this a few weeks ago but didn’t remember to write it down or bookmark. They were here earlier, too, and I missed it.

@Lambowner? Any body else in TX?
