Getting to Know George's Pastaria
Doing some research for this week's cafe review of George's Pastaria (1722 S. Dairy Ashford, 281-558-1717), I stumbled across a treasure trove at YouTube of all places: low-budget but incredibly awesome commercials that George Reed, his wife Rene and their employees made for the restaurant.
If I didn't already love George's, these commercials would have made me fall for the little restaurant immediately. But I do already love George's, and for exactly the kind of homey, casual, welcoming vibe that these videos demonstrate. The fact that its rigatoni campagnolo is Italian-American comfort food heaven in a bowl doesn't hurt either.
Enjoy the video above and check out interviews with George and Rene Reed below.
