It’s time for a Sunday night food and drink roundup. Let’s get started, shall we?

Alison Cook hopes downtown’s El Centro Restaurant sticks around for a while. She has also started an excellent new Chron blog called Cook’s Tour. There is absolutely nothing wrong with getting to read more Alison.

Wine seems to be a theme lately. Robb Walsh tries Cova on Washington, raves about it, and readers get an excellent primer on allocated wines as a result.

Wine connoisseur and sommelier of Brenner’s Steakhouse Kim Wallace sits down for a Q&A for the Chron.

For Dai Huynh, to decant or not to decant seems to be the question.

And for Peggy Grodinsky, to splurge or not to splurge on the wine in coq au vin seems to be the question. Ending our wine tour, she also reviews Houston’s farmers markets.

Mary Vuong checks out the eatin’s at this year’s Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Where else can one get pizza on a stick, half-pound hot dogs, deep-fried candy bars, and of course funnel cake?

Ken Hoffman visits Baskin-Robbins for their new Happy Camper Waffle Cone Sundae, made with, what else, trail mix.

And Lance Scott Walker reviews cool-sounding Boaka Bar.

World Class, all of it. Enjoy!!
