Local Foods

dining out / Houston

I’ve been dining out with my brother and sister lately and one of our new favorite spots in town is Local Foods down in the Rice Village. This gourmet sandwich shop uses fresh and, wait for it, local ingredients. Each sandwich order, as if it wasn’t already enough,  comes with two sides ranging from quinoa, or homemade cous cous to delicious cabbage slaw.  The vibe here is chill with locals coming in and out, hanging […]

Spent Saturday out and about, catching up on a few exhibits I’ve had my eye on. (Plus, it’s always a good excuse to wear all my sundresses) First, brunch at Downhouse, where the waiters are dapper, the Bloody Marys are spicy and the pulled pork sandwiches are very very delicious. A large mirror from a neighboring antique store caught our eye, so we made a quick detour there. But the rest of the day was […]
