HTX Good Eats 2012

Houstonians love to eat. We're always near or at the top of the Zagat Guide's list of cities where residents dine out the most often. We thrive on discussing food, being the first to discover new restaurants and dissecting the comings and goings of chefs. At CultureMap, we talk a lot about food every month of the year but this month is really special, with our Good Eats editorial series. We'll take an in-depth look at why Houstonians are so crazy about dining out, profile restaurateurs — both big and small — who are real success stories, and look at social events centered around great food and great conversation. Hope to see you out at a restaurant soon.
