Hungry In Houston: It's definitely that time of year again: Crawfish boils will soon be cropping up all over town.

Chili Bob's Houston Eats: Bob checks out Houston's newest Argentinean restaurant (Argentina Cafe, at Hidalgo and Sage) and reports back. From the looks of his meal and the sound of the menu, we might have a new favorite...
Bakin' n Bacon: Plinio decides to combine the best of both worlds -- chocolate molten cake and creme brulee -- into one amazing dessert, with instructions on how to replicate his ganache brulee at home for yourself.

Cleverley's Blog: In case you hadn't already heard the news, here's a recap: Alden Hotel loses GM and chef, sold to new investors.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
