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 (

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 (

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 (

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. (

Tee-hee-hee :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

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?

Nice convenient location ---- :upside_down_face: :grimacing: :unamused:

But I’ve just got to try this, Bombay Pizza downtown is long gone but it seems there are several other small places like this in town now.
