It’s Friday and time for a pre-weekend food and drink review.

Last week Alison Cook went Creole and did the Sunday buffet and more at Lagniappe Grill. She also traveled to Manville for barbecue and fixins’ at the Naked Rib Smokehouse. Speaking of Alison, if you’re not making her blog a daily stop on your Houston meanderings, you’re missing much.

There isn’t a seafood gumbo in town that can come close to being as good as Denis’ seafood gumbo, in my humble opinion, but Robb Walsh convinces me in his review this week that I should give Joyce’s Ocean Grill a try.

Last week Dai Huynh checked out the opening week for Tart Cafe in Montrose. This week she makes me all squeamish with her Texas blue crab review.

Peggy Grodinsky gets fruity on us with stories on local strawberry farms and loquats. Of course loquats are edible. They’re yummy. She also announces Zagat’s most popular Houston restaurant. Did Armadillo Palace really get customer accolades for being one of the best newcomers in town?

Ken Hoffman does not get fruity on us with his review of Burger King’s new Tendercrisp Cheesy Bacon Chicken Sandwich.

And finally, Lance Scott Walker checks out Home Plate Bar & Grill near Minute Maid Park.

World class, all of it. Enjoy!!
