Someone started this topic in another region and I was thinking it might be helpful here to identify places that have failed to a degree that you won’t consider going back. I think I’ve been pretty blunt here and on CH about my bad experiences, which to tell the truth actually have been bad enough to anger me. It feels like mistreatment to take my money and give bad food or service in return. I guess that’s why I get angry at the more expensive places in town than the least, although I truly believe the lesser expensive places serve consistently better food in this town. I know also there are rules about strong criticism of restaurants, so here is a short list, without further comment, of places I won’t return to. There are so many great restaurants and new ones opening each that strive to succeed.
The Grove - don’t get me started
Bistro Le Cep - this saddens me and I may go again sometime because it has such a fine owner and food that was great until it was spectacularly not one visit.
Any Chuy’s that is not the original on Westheimer, the Katy one, oof.
