Another Houston Holiday Dinner Option: High-end Takeout From B&B Butchers

Yesterday, the Houston Press got another unsolicited but much appreciated food delivery and in this case, it really was a chance to see the high end of the takeout market. 

B&B Butchers & Restaurant, 1814 Washington, dropped by samples of its holiday specials, so as usual we took a few photos before plunging in. It was delicious. In an alternate universe, our counterparts eat like this every day but in this one, for most of us, this is a rarity. The sides were good, the mains were good, the desserts were good. It was all very, very — some would say exceptionally — good. 

So, if you want to bolster any of your holiday meals or just take a break from cooking this season, check this out. Here's what they have and what it'll cost you:

1. Beef Wellington (ready to bake and serves 5 to 7 people). $385.

2. Classic Pommes Puree (high class mashed potatoes) part of the traditional side dish package that also includes B&B Creamed Spinach, Green Beans with Shallots, Almonds & Blue Cheese and Truffle Mac & Cheese. $19 for package. 

3. Truffle Mac & Cheese (part of $19 sides package)

4. Green Beans with Shallots, Almonds & Blue Cheese (part of $19 sides package)

5. Crown Pork Roast 8 Bone (ready to bake and serves 8 people, marinated and seasoned with sherry pineapple sauce) $65

6.  B&B Creamed Spinach (part of $19 sides package)

7. Christmas Hams. $10.99 per pound

8. Fully Cooked Prime Boneless Rib Roast (with Pommes Puree, Au's Jus & Yorkshire Pudding. Half Roast (5 to 7 servings) $300 and Full Roast (10-12 servings) $550.

9. Rolls

And if you still have room:

B&B House Baked Pies are $30 each. Besides the key lime and pecan we had, they offer an apple crisp. All serve eight people.
