Best Tasting Menu In America? Artisans Houston, TX

Artisans Entrance — Houston, Texas

Gluten Free Review
+gluten free tasting menu
+gluten free accommodations
+no gluten free bread however

So I’ve done around 11 tasting menus all over the country now and most of them are all about being trendy and hip, and trying to use foam and all this crap to get you to enjoy their food. While that’s an awesome experience it’s always leaving quality lacking.

 

Enter Artisans, a modern downtown Houston restaurant that is by far one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in awhile. The tasting menu is not only eye candy, it’s actually good food and great quality. Not to mention you get to sit at basically the “prep” area chefs table which is quite enjoyable.

Started off with some decent libations and that lobster bisque tho, also beats + feta.

chefs table

Not much “Chefs Table”

The Chef’s table isn’t actually a chefs table since no one is actually cooking anything out there, mostly final touches to dishes at least on the Tuesday night we went. The service was excellent, the price was reasonable, and the food quality was amazing and for them to accommodate gluten free status was beyond there duty and explained each dish perfectly. I’ll post pictures of my dishes instead of explaining each dish.

The only downside? Artisans cocktails were lacking, even though your suppose to enjoy wine pairing, I’d figure a place of this caliber would have a lot more choices of custom craft cocktails to be enjoyed, however it doesn’t change the quality of restaurant Artisans is. If your looking for an enjoyable foodie night out with great food, this is the place.

My dessert was gluten free (top) and brother had a cool candy crack rock (bottom).

If your in Texas, or Houston please check out Artisans, that was amazing.

Moon-pie, Grilled Cheese, and Charleston’s Museum Fun

My day 5 & 6 Adventures in Charleston, South Carolina

2015-11-12 17.14.56 (Large)
Woke up day 5 and knowing someone in my family loves Moon-pies I adventured down town to the market to hit up one of the official Moon-pie stores. I adventured in the area and that day for breakfast just grabbed breakfast at home and then ended up that night finding a spot called Cory’s Grilled Cheese. Day 5 was a pretty slow day, so day 6 has a lot more adventuring with the museum.

They have a variety of moon pie merchandise as well as a soda ice cream shop in the back, also you can pose with a huge moon pie. I still hate moon-pie for not having a gluten free option, make a gluten-free moon pie!

Gentlemen at a bar told me if I loved sandwiches there was a place that served grilled cheese sandwiches and many different varieties. Now I’ve heard of Tom+Chee and what not but being within 5 miles of this place I had to go. Took about 10 minutes from downtown Charleston and arrived in the back of a shopping center to an empty Cory’s Grilled Cheese… why was it empty I have NO CLUE!?!

Hit read more to check out my photos and review of Cory’s.
