Double-Stuffed at Sabine River Cafe
That's how you'll feel after you eat the double-stuffed crabmeat casserole ($15.99) at Sabine River Cafe (10001 Westheimer, 713-334-2353). A casserole dish is layered with a bread stuffing, crabmeat and an au gratin topping made of a béchamel-like sauce mixed with cheddar cheese. It's then baked in a brick oven, which imparts a slightly smoky flavor while blistering the cheese sauce. It comes with two fried, stuffed shrimp that can be dipped in the casserole or in the wonderful chipotle rémoulade served on the side.
