Cappy's, on the patio. Fab, as always - chicken salad with steamed veggies and fresh fruit, and a nice ice cold glass of reisling. Mmmm.

How appropriate....opened the page, first thing was this thread....we just got home from El Ranchito over in Seguin. If your idea of dining excellence is a bartender too engrossed in a game on TV to take care of you, you'll love this place.

This was our 4th trip to here, because we've always heard good things - there will NOT be a 5th trip! LOUSY service, both in the restaurant AND bar - to the point that I left a whole penny for the bar tender...which I will seldom do, even with mediocre service. Even the friends that were with us (who normally tip even more than we do) thought the penny was more than they earned.

I just ate at Pasha's for the first time today. I had the lamb kabobs. It was really good, and just the right amount for me. I can definitely understand the popularity of this place.

I saw a lot of people ordering the Gyro. I didn't want to get that since they are fairly common these days, it seems a little cliche, like getting lemon chicken at a Chinese restaurant or Chicken Parmesan at an Italian place, I always want to be a little more adventurous. However, the Gyro's did look unusually good and it was definitely the most popular item being ordered at lunch time. I think I will try one of them next time.

Pasha's has great food and is very affordable. They're getting ready to open a second spot on Blanco/1604. If it's anywhere near as good I'll be a regular there!

Had lunch yesterday at Luke downtown. This was a Twilight Zone experience. We go in and the place is pretty busy with business suit types, they make up about 95% of the patrons. Customer service is above and beyond expectation, friendly warm staff from the Hostess to the waiter really makes this place stand out.

I ordered the lunch special, Red Beans & Rice with a Fried pork chop, served with your choice of soup; my pick was crab bisque. The crab bisque was very good in all its crabby essence, and full of crab meat. I added a touch more salt, and a shake of pepper which made this bisque perfect. I wish I had gotten a bowl of this for lunch. Instead I got the red beans & rice, and it was as bland and boring as it could get. The red beans lacked any depth of flavor, just one note...bland. The addition of Tabasco and salt made the beans tolerable. The pork chop looked like a winner, golden brown, with flecks of fresh herbs in the breading. Sadly the breading was the only winner, the pork was dry under seasoned -- if seasoned at all. The meal on a whole was abysmal. I had high hopes with this being a John Besh establishment.

Below is a picture of the pork chop, the dry sad piece of meat is there in all its glory.


I had Max's Wine Dive for dinner and that fried chicken erased all memories of the horrible lunch. I was skeptical going in, and a believer leaving. The 4 pc. fried chicken was served with mashed potatoes and collard greens, and instead of the Texas toast my dinner date and I opted for the jalapeno cornbread, huge mistake. The cornbread was dry, dry, and did I mention dry? It had a strange aroma once in the mouth, my date said it could be the jalapenos. I'd best describe it as pecans that had gone rancid. The chicken could do no wrong, and the mashed potatoes were exactly what they were suppose to be. The greens were actually pretty good, nice vinegar flavor; the only blemish were the improperly cleaned and dressed greens. There were way too many stalks and on more than one occasion I chomped down on dirt or sand. This meal was good and filling despite the two minor bumps. They will be getting my business on a regular if the rest of the menu is on par with the fried chicken.

The Monty again for brunch Sunday. The new grits dish hit the spot with the addition of bacon. The new cook is really running the kitchen better than ever. Looking forward to going back tonight...

Tangere on McCullough at Olmos Circle. Soups were extraordinary. One had 1/2 lobster could not rave enough. Gnochi was awesome also.

In neighborhood, will return shortly.
