One of Houston’s most anticipated restaurants this Fall, Navy Blue.
Featured on Robb Report, a great write-up on the new space by such a wonderful team.
Some scenes from around the bar and in the kitchen at Bludorn, and a peek at their new summer menu. It’s always an honor to be invited into this space. Chef Aaron was James Beard-nominated for Best Chef: Texas last year and was named Houston chef of the year by Eater, just to name a few of their well-deserved recognitions.
Frames from earlier this year at Bludorn.
Nobie’s has been one of my favorite restaurants for years so it was such a thrill for me to step into their kitchen. Even more of a thrill? Eating this. My god. Called ‘Freak in the Sheets’, this dish brings together buttery uni, tender Gulf crab, luxurious sheets of squid ink pasta, and smoky trout roe ?. Visit Eater Houston for the full story: How the Most Decadent Pasta Dish at Nobie’s is Made.

“2019 was packed with strong contenders for Restaurant of the Year, but no new eatery in the city better exemplifies Houston’s diverse culinary scene than Blood Bros. Barbecue. From its beginnings as a pop-up to a bona fide Space City phenomenon, Blood Bros. Barbecue has always exemplified the city’s distinct culinary ethos in a way that Houston can really be proud of.
Whether it’s green curry boudin or barky brisket or juicy pork belly burnt ends, the meats at Blood Bros. are always top-notch, and the lines that snake out of its building on Bellaire Boulevard are proof that its barbecue operation is really clicking. When combined with sides like brisket fried rice, pinto beans, and jalapeno creamed corn, this is the kind of meal that feels like going on a trip across the world without ever leaving the neighborhood.”
Houston’s Indigo was named by Eater as one of the 16 Best New Restaurants in America! I’ve been intrigued by Chef Jonny Rhodes’ concept of fighting racist stereotypes with his “neo-soul” tasting menu, centered around telling stories of African Americans and Indigenous people. He and his wife Chana aim to challenge systemic racism and oppression with Indigo. “Rhodes delivers monologues between courses on weighty topics ranging from mass incarceration to the Great Migration, but even without them, Indigo’s very existence is part of the work: a fine dining restaurant in a historically underserved neighborhood, serving food that unabashedly claims its purpose. In a more equitable dining culture, none of this would be revolutionary, but today it is; diners simply don’t see restaurants like this very often” (eater).
I was so excited to be asked by Eater to photograph Chef Rhodes and his food for the national feature.
