Weights + Measures - Houston


(Bruce) #1

Plan B for lunch today. Weights + Measures is a restaurant, bar and bake shop and the main retail outlet for Slow Dough Bakers with baking done on premises.

I was looking for a charcuterie plate but they had this pressed salumi sandwich. Couple of types of salumi, ham, cheese, red peppers, on a pressed ciabatta roll, plus house-made chips and bread and butter pickles.

I was too full to contemplate any of the pastries but I did score a loaf of pumpernickel from the Bake Shop. I’ve had a thing about pumpernickel lately and Slow Dough makes the best one in town.

W + M was recently named one of the 10 best new restaurants of the last 12 months by the reviewer for Houstonia Mag.

Thanks for the review, Bruce. I just bought the new Houstonia Magazine “Best New Restaurants” issue, and they do give the place great reviews. They also mention enjoying drinks at the restaurant’s deliciously-named Love & Squalor Bar. At least these folks have great imaginations.
