Catherine’s latest venture, Café Brussels is a great new addition to the Heights. Try the Tartare de Saumon dressed with a zesty Belgian country vinaigrette accompanied by a Belgian draft beer or glass (bottle!) of wine. You can’t go wrong requesting Catherine’s favorite mussel dish for a main course, Belgian classic, Moules Marinières, accompanied by a large serving of golden Belgian Fries. The large and succulent mussels are steamed to perfection and portion sizes are very generous! My dining companion enjoyed le Petit Pavé de Bruxelles, a perfectly cooked steak and le Cordon Bleu. Be sure to leave room for one of Café Brussels fabulous desserts! Catherine's crepes are among my favorites.Catherine Duwaz is both a good friend and a genuinely nice person. It brings me great pleasure to see a friend continue to succeed in a town that can be unforgiving to restaurateurs. Cafe Brussels is our new "go-to" place in Houston for great Belgian food. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the portions sizes are generous.
We decided on the Villagio & couldn't be happier! The venue is clean, spacious, and simply elegant. We had our ceremony and reception here. Trish, owner & overall planner, is prompt, thorough, charismatic and easy to work with. The venue is tucked away at the end of a street, with private parking & far from the street. There are inside/outside room options, but the trademark is a beautiful spiral staircase for a grand bridal entrance! The package we chose was the Ultimate II. This package comes with everything except the DJ and videographer so we didn’t have to worry about hiring various vendors for each part of our wedding. Trish already has a strong vendor selection. Our package came with food, cake, linens, floral arrangements, photo booth, lighting, photography, 2 HPD officers, and a wedding coordinator. We paid extra for drapery and it was beautiful. The caterers allowed us to test the food in a prior meeting so we can give them very specific details. Mr. & Mrs. King 08/12/2016

I am office lady has to work 5 days, so that do not have enough time cook for my family, when I been here at first time I had loved here, 'cause whatever I bought for my family, they ate all of them and even asked for next time order. Sushi roll, Teriyaki, Salad and Dumpling we tried all. Here is the best one I knew in Katy, yummy and health food with acceptable price, strongly recommend!! Promise if you try, and you couldn't forget it!!
We visited the Vertskebap in Spring, Texas on July 1, 2015 at the recommendation of a co-worker. A gentleman by the name of Cederick took our order and also offered great suggestions regarding the sauces, etc to put on our meal to enhance the experience. Everyone including Cederick was super friendly and all three of us, my wife, myself and our son, all voted 5 out of 5 stars and a definite new restaurant on our palate of dining choices. The food is fresh, wholesome, and is healthy. Lots of fresh vegetables, the meat choices come in beef, lamb and chicken and the sauces are made homemade they said every day, right in the store. A definite recommend, you have to try it - you will be hooked.
I have worked here part-time for about 6 months and I loved every day there! From day one to my last day, I had the opportunity to see the students grow and excel in subjects that they never thought possible. With a wide array of resources there, we (the tutors) were able to help each individual student on their specific needs. Whether the student needs help with homework, help with studying for a test, or even wanting to excel to learn ahead, we had everything to needed to assist them in a wonderful learning environment. This is a great place to see your kids excel and I would recommend everyone who is looking for extra help to come here!

Same crowd, same fat British guy from the efficiency apartments, same dried-up cancerous bar tender, same convicts, same Mount Marley, same Strange Brew, same dart games, same chubby chasers, same everything.But those Big A beers for $3.00 hit the old Spatten.This is not a classy joint,; but they did re-do the bathrooms a few years back.Saw a chick wet her pants, and another light matches on her silicone jobs for all to see. Can see the drug dealers at Food Town the next day shopping with their grandma.Get lost in the Time Machine, be a faithful patron. Don't get too crazy, you too might climb Mt. Marley...
I first visited RIPCORD in 2001. I've seen it go through a few phases. Some better than others. Fortunately, the new managment has done a great job of bringing the gay bar into a new era of masculinity along with renovated bathrooms, a new paint job, wide range of events, cheap drinks, and friendly bartenders.RIPCORD is a gay bar usually full of 23-55yo men (Bears, Daddy's, Cubs, Twinks) and their LGBTQIA friends. The patio is the largest of all the gay bars in the Montrose and is synonymous with a fun and friendly bears.Basically, a laid back bear bar with pool, darts, and great music.
Bimbo's is a great dive bar. Cheap drinks, friendly service, friendlier people. Crazy "decor" of strange stuff all over the place. Went on a Saturday, the place was packed but still enough room to move around. It's a small club and it has some seating outside. The DJ kept the dance floor full (mostly women) when customers weren't singing Karaoke. Interesting mix of younger and older crowd. Anyone would fit in. Not for the trendy, exclusive type, for sure. Great mixed drinks and your standard beer selection. 1 pool table and that's about it. All you need for a great dive bar.
