Overview

The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston, a Second Edition is an insider's handbook that celebrates everything edible in Houston. More than simply a restaurant guidebook, The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide, a Second Edition is an insider's manual that celebrates everything edible in Houston. It is written by the editors of My Table Magazine, the city's foremost authority on dining out - and dining well - in Houston, Texas.

The 5" x 8" book - easy to slip into a handbag, briefcase, glove compartment or gift bag - is divided into five chapters: Markets (including ethnic markets, butchers, fishmongers, farmers' markets, kitchen outfitters and specialty shops); Bakeries & Sweets (includes bakeries, pastry shops, chocolate and candy shops and frozen confections); Coffeehouses & Tea Shops (includes boba tea shops); Wine & Spirits (includes wine bars, pubs, craft beer bars, wine/spirits retailers, breweries and icehouses); and Restaurants (a huge chapter that includes everything from fine-dining establishments to quirky ethnic eateries off the beaten path).

The new edition features 352 pages with some 600 separate entries, all-new black & white photography, dozens of sidebar features and expanded indexes for quicker searches and cross-referencing. Just as in the first edition, each listing has map coordinates that correspond to a fold-out map at the back of the guidebook. The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston, a Second Edition is your passport to Houston's vast, incredibly rich and varied food scene.

What People Are Saying

Greg Morago
It's a herculean task keeping up with Houston's growing and continuously evolving food scene. But watch My Table magazine flex its muscle with every issue and daily web posts that comb through the city's best places to eat, from small, unsung family-run shops to glossy restaurants run by the nation's top-tier chefs. Teresa Byrne-Dodge and her staff know this town and the people who work hard to make it delicious. They put the 'ultimate' in The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston. (Greg Morago, Food Editor, Houston Chronicle)
Monica Pope
As a longtime proponent of 'eating where your food lives,' sourcing local ingredients and serving them at T'afia, I also want help navigating the culinary depth and breadth of Houston's food scene from a real local's perspective. The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston is just that — a locally produced guidebook that gives a true insider's view that will have readers discovering Houston's great places to shop, drink and eat for years to come. (Monica Pope, Chef/Owner of T'afia, Beavers and Green Plum Kitchen and James Beard Award nominee)
Patricia Sharpe
What a neat trick: The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston revels in the variety and richness of Houston's restaurants, markets, shops, coffeehouses, wine bars and breweries without overwhelming the reader. It is both authoritative and fun. I think of it as the Goldilocks and the Three Bears of guidebooks: Not too much. Not too little. Just right. (Patricia Sharpe, Food Editor, Texas Monthly)

Meet the Author

Teresa Byrne-Dodge has been writing about Houston restaurants for more than 27 years, first as restaurant critic for the Sunday magazine of The Houston Post (1984-1988), then as restaurant critic for Houston Metropolitan magazine (1988-1992) and Houston Life until it folded in 1995. Since 1984, she has written hundreds of freelance articles for such publications as The New York Times, Food & Wine, Texas Monthly, Texas Highways, Restaurant & Hotel Design, Southern Living and many others. From 1995 to 1996, she was the on-air restaurant critic for KHOU-Channel 11's morning news show in Houston.

Her restaurant reviews appear in a number of books as well, including Jerry Herring's Guide to Houston and Mariani's Coast-to-Coast Dining Guide with America's Best Critics. She was also the Houston-based editor or coordinator for all print editions of the Zagat Houston Restaurant Survey through 2002.

In June 1994, with a $3,000 nest egg, Byrne-Dodge launched a bimonthly 12-page dining-out publication called My Table: A Critical Guide to Dining in Houston. Response to My Table was immediate and enthusiastic. Today it is a 64-plus-page magazine read by some 26,000 food-loving Houstonians.
