Twenty years ago, native Houstonian Lauren Catuzzi Grandcolas was aboard flight 93 on the fateful morning of the September 11 terrorist attacks. This morning we gathered at Lauren's Garden to pay homage to the loved ones we lost on 9/11, and to reflect on the last 20 years. We're grateful for this space in @marketsquarehou, and encourage you to stop by today for a few quiet moments of reflection and rememberance.

Meet IXรM Houston the newest chef-driven concept at @braverychefhall. Here you'll find a plethora of Mexican-inspired meat and seafood dishes, prepared to absolute perfection by Chef Tim Reading.

We had the chance to try out many of his creations and truth be told, we can't wait to dive into every single thing on this menu over the next few weeks. If you're a fan of mexican food, IXรM Houston will take your tastebuds to another planet.

Our favorites so far?
๐Ÿค Aguachile de Camarรณn [Gulf shrimp, cucumber-serrano chile water, red onion, seasonal fruit, mint]
๐Ÿ  Fideo de Marisco [Vermicelli pasta, octopus, catch of the day, Gulf shrimp, Atlantic Lobster, tomato, seafood broth, epazote, lemon zest, chile de arbol]
And some REAL GOOD charro beans, complete with chicharrones on top. ๐Ÿ˜‹

There was a time when Chris Shepherd said he would never open a restaurant in our little neighborhood. But we're extremely grateful he changed his mind. If you've yet to visit Georgia James Tavern, this is your reminder to do so (be mindful, reservations are hard to come by but worth the wait!). With an insane cocktail menu and one of the best Cuban sandwiches in our city (thx Matthew Coburn), this restaurant is a little piece of heaven itself.

Our recommendations:
๐Ÿธ The Ponderosa [Lime Leaf Vodka, Cranberry, Lime, Orange Marmalade, Rosato Aperitif]
๐Ÿฅƒ Hall Pass [Bourbon, Banana, Bitters Blend]
๐Ÿฆช Hearth Roasted Oysters [bacon, redneck cheddar, green garlic-chili butter...TRUST US]
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ Tally's Cuban [mojo roasted pork, smoked ham, swiss, pickles, yucca fritta, island sauce]
๐Ÿฅฉ Cast Iron Seared Wagyu Ribeye [because it's Georgia James after all]
๐ŸŽ Hearth Baked Apple Crumble [Victoria Dearmond is a wizard in the pastry department]

It wouldn't be Labor Day weekend without a good old-fashioned backyard barbecue! We're throwing it down at Historic Market Square Houston with the biggest BBQ #DowntownHouston has seen to date. Think: lawn games, live music (by DANNY RAY and the ACOUSTIC PRODUCTION) cold brews and delicious barbecueโ€“from traditional to Korean and vegan, there will be plenty to choose from.

Make sure to bring an appetite the size of Joey Chestnut's because we're looking to crown a new champion in our watermelon-eating contest. Think you've got what it takes?
