Official Foodie Thread

figured I'd start a new thread since the other thread was getting punished with food.....

this is where you can post pictures of the food you're eating, any foodie run events you've been on or if you just want to let us know what the fuck you're about to smash during lunch or at the dinner table.

pics will be awesome......

oh, and if you're at a real nice or premier steak house/seafood house, drop a link to their website or post up some of their accolades.

here in Houston, the 4th biggest and fattest city in the nation, we LOVE our food....

i'll start......





went to Truluck's on Wednesday with a vendor: http://trulucks.com/pages/press

had a blackened 10oz Pontchartrain Center Cut Filet with a crawfish, shrimp and blue crab Creole cream on top.

the Lobster Bisque was amazing as well.

I'm planning on trying Fogo next month while on a road trip. Nothing really good Around here so I'm not hard to impress.

How was it?
Are they skimpy with the meat refills?

Trulucks is a chain like Capital Grille, Texas de Brazil, Mortons, etc.

It's good food, but I wouldn't say it set the world on fire and I've had some "eh" meals there. Joes Stone Crab in South beach is awesome. So is Smith and Wollensky.

no it ain't - there's only 10 in the country.

now Capital Grille, there are tons of them all over the place, but it doesn't take away from their fine dining moniker...

funny you mention Smith and Wollensky - I went to one that is right around the corner/street from Truluck's and Capital Grille.

it was great, but it wasn't even better than Vic and Anthony's...

p.s.
just so ya'll know, here in Houston, Truluck's and Capital Grille are LITERALLY across the street from each other.

you could walk from one to the other by just crossing the street....

oohhhh noooooo......

the last thing they are, is skimpy with the meat.

if you leave that little card flipped to green, they will crush your soul with so much meat that you could get sick

trust me, NO ONE leaves Fogo without feeling they need to be transported to the nearest hospital.

definitely get your money's worth....

Sweet.
I've already told my my group that I'm not driving on the way back. Itis coma ftw.


And antelope, venison and elk are delicious. I've had a lot of wild game.
Fried venison and elk are amazing.
