Arnaldo Richards of Pico’s
HAPPY 26th BIRTHDAY, PICO’S
On Sunday March 7, the beloved Houston dining institution called Pico’s (which cleverly claims its food is “Mex-Mex” as opposed to Tex-Mex, celebrates its 26th anniversary. And as owner Arnaldo Richards join us to explain, it does so with a special 100-item buffet featuring traditional dishes from all seven culinary regions of Mexico. And for those who think the signature dish of all Mexican cuisine is the margarita (not!), there will be birthday drink specials as well.
WINES FROM CAHORS. IN FRANCE.
Everybody’s heard of Bordeaux, Burgundy and of course Champagne, all wine regions in France with a signature product. And more and more wine drinkers have heard of the Rhone Valley. This week, though, our Grape & Grain segment heads southwest to the region of Cahors, which in the past few years has come on as one of the hottest-hippest (but still ancient) wine regions on earth.
CHEFS FROM TWO MORTON’S
Apparently, two steaks are better than one. Actually, we already kinda figured that. We still couldn’t resist the notion of having the chefs from both Houston editions of Morton’s The Steakhouse (the artist formerly known as Morton’s of Chicago!) on the same show. We don’t know what steaks they’re bringing us to taste, but everything we know about the House Arnie Morton built tells us they’ll be real good.
