Primzie Sprouted Ancient Grain Crispbread - This is my saving grace when it comes to snacking with cheeses, dips and hummus--delicious and versatile. Found at Central Market and HEB.
Three Little Pigs - A highlight of my year. I can't wait to go back to this delightful spot behind The Aristocrat.
Small Victory - Very precise drinks and atmosphere. Scoring the big table in the back is a bonus when you have a larger group.
I still have The Roosevelt Room on my radar even though my plans to visit still have not panned out. It is high on my list of resolutions.
Restaurants: (because I couldn't pick just one):
Chicon - Relaxed dining spot, great happy hour.
Eberly - The interior is so beautiful, the food is really solid and the bar is stunning.
Otoko - Wonderful special occasion spot and Watertrade bar is splendid.
Emmer & Rye - Even though the name doesn't sound conducive to gluten-free dining, they are very accommodating and helpful with menu choices. After trying it for the first time, I now know not to order too much off of the main menu and see what delights the dim sum can offer.
Texas French Bread - It is a reliable neighborhood stand-by and we really love their patio.
Picnik (on Burnet Road)- The menu is very user-friendly for those following a gluten-free diet and I can walk there.
Early in 2017, I would love to visit Boiler Nine Bar & Grill, Kyoten, Dee Dee, Red Ash, Sellers and the recently reopened Hudson's on the Bend. I am looking forward to the opening of Kemuri (from the Ramen Tatsu-Ya team), Bonhamie, Kuneho in the new year.
Those That Will Be Missed:
