Honky-Tonk Houston

Readers weigh in on the pros and cons

Mary

Ask 'em: Why don't you ask the restaurant what was going on on your first visit? I suspect it was chef's day off, and it would be nice to know that so we can all avoid it.

Colin

Best brunch: I have just recently visited Brennan's for brunch, and I must say it has to be the best in town. Try a Creole Bloody Mary or barbecue shrimp.

Sean Hochstein

Go back: Wouldn't it make more sense to try a place more than just twice before calling it inconsistent? If your first visit was off, and the next four or five were great, would you still call it inconsistent?

William

Good, not great: I had a very similar experience, taking my mom there. It was good but not great, particularly for the price. The turtle soup was edible, but I found myself thinking, this is the dish Robb Walsh named one of his top 100 Houston dishes? Very, very boring. I did really enjoy the Chef's Playground and the beautiful setting.

Kyle

Forgot one: I would have included Chris Shepherd in the list of "the city's most important and talented chefs" that worked at Brennan's.

WRONG INGREDIENTS

''Midtown Moussaka" [by Katharine Shilcutt, August 12] contained two errors. Johnny Platsas, the current owner of Harry's, is in fact from Larissa, Thessaly. The previous owner, Harry Mickelis, was from Patmos.

The Houston Press regrets the errors.
