Now I like La Fisheria. A lot. But now you're just trying to be "different". Is La Fisheria better than Hugo's? Not in a million years. The service alone would disqualify it, let alone the inconsistency in the kitchen, or the wine list which while interesting, is certainly not amazing. Great, yes. Best, no. Really, the only Beard finalist in the city doesn't even have the best restaurant in his category? I like that you're highlighting La Fisheria, but keep in mind that lots of visitors to Houston use this as their only entry point into eating in this town, and you're really doing them a disservice by trying to be quirky.
@johnatrisk I'm sorry you feel that we're trying to be quirky, but I -- for one -- am a legitimately big fan of La Fisheria. I like that they're taking risks and doing something different from the standard Tex-Mex in this town, and doing a very good job of it most of the time. Besides -- everyone knows that Hugo's plays in a league of its own and long ago surpassed the need for external validation. That place is on a different plane entirely.
