Driskill Grill on This Weekend’s Radio Show

HOUSTON Saturdays and Sundays 4-5 p.m., NewsRadio 740 KTRH

A Presentation of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods 

SATURDAY: We broadcast from Austin this week, with a flavorful update on one of our favorite restaurants in the state capital – the Driskill Grill. Certainly trading on the charm and history of the Driskill Hotel, the restaurant remains worthy of both awards and regular visits. We do a food tasting with the chef and general manager. In our Grape and Grain segment, we taste the wonderful bubbly produced by Champagne Pannier with Terence Kenny, a New York guy who’s made a lot of his life and livelihood in the wine regions of France. 

SUNDAY: In today’s show, we trek down to the unlikely culinary destination of Alvin, for a dining adventure a lot of Houstonians are raving about. Joe Schneider and Chef Jason Chaney join forces to tell us how it’s possible to do a locally grown, often-organic seasonal scratch-cooking menu in a town that, well, hasn’t seen too much of that. And we chat about the new Golden Age of Cocktails with King Cocktail himself, Dale DeGroff.
