Alison Cook's Top 100

July 23, 2012

Most people don't realize this, but Houston is one of the number one cities for dining out.  We have great restaurants with great chefs all over the city.  Recently Houston Chronicle food critic, Alison Cook, chose her top 100 restaurants in Houston for 2012.  Looking over her list, I realized the restaurants were not just upscale and super expensive, they were actually all very different.  There were upscale restaurants like Vic & Anthony's to food trucks like Good Dog Hot Dogs and everything in between. 

As I continued reading, it occurred to me...I must try each and every one of these restaurants!  I shared my idea with a few friends, and they were all up for the challenge!  Next step was choosing our time frame.  Can we dine out at this many restaurants in one year?  Hmm...There are 52 weeks in a year and 100 restaurants on the list...If we went to each one in one year that would mean that we would have to go to at least two restaurants per week.  That was a little much, so I decided to give us two years to try each and every one and in no particular order.  That's getting together and trying one restaurant a week.  We can totally do it!

Please stay tuned for our adventure, and I would love to hear everyone else's thoughts on the restaurants that we visit!
