What People are Saying About This
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.
