A lovely decorated venue, delicious food, local Texas ingredients, and Kosher all describe the several wonderful meals that we have enjoyed at the Genesis Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar. We have eaten dinner, brunch and even ordered take-out. All were fantastic. Our group has tried a variety of dishes including the tabouli, matbucha, babaganoush, hummus platter with homemade pita bread, the Asian salad, blackened salmon, Long Island Duckling, free range organic chicken kebab, potato hash with pastrami, breakfast tacos, and the lox Benedict. The most unique food item that we tried were the challah tacos! They were fantastic, as was everything else!
The table service and the the saxophonist playing at dinner were superb! Genesis Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is a perfect spot for a date night, as well as for entertaining friends and family for brunch. The take-out was packaged in neat sturdy taped containers. We are looking forward to returning for Russian night on August 22nd!

Drum roll, please! Trader Joe’s has arrived in Katy, Texas! Their products include hard to find fresh fruit, prepared frozen and refrigerated entrees, Kosher meat, Mochi ice cream, and Chocolate Brooklyn babka. The fresh flowers and plants are beautiful and reasonably priced. It is located at the rear of the shopping center with plenty of parking. I have been there twice and have been twice impressed by the selection of items, friendliness of the employees and reasonable prices.
I just informed my husband of where I would like to have dinner in December to celebrate our thirty-first wedding anniversary – Cafe Rabelais! It is located in Rice Village at 2442 Times Blvd in Houston. I even know exactly what I will order – Steak & Frites made with Black Truffle and Cognac Cream. And, for dessert, Profiteroles which are Puff Pastries served with Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, Warm Chocolate Sauce and Nuts. Their portions were very generous! And, how do I know this? I just enjoyed this wonderful meal there with my daughter, Nina! Cafe Rabelais offers an extensive menu of French cuisine as well as wines including Escargots, Lemon Sole Meunière and Margret de Canard.
What is equally interesting is the name of this establishment, “Cafe Rabelais.” Francois Rabelais (c. 1483 – 1553), was a French writer, priest and medical doctor. He went by the pseudonym, Alcofribas Nasier, and published “Gargantua,” a series of satirical books. The first of these books was entitled, “Pantagruel,” in which he coined the expression, “parce que rire est le propre de l’homme” translated “because laughter is the characteristic of man.” This has also been interpreted to mean, “eat, drink and be merry.” In addition, in his book he wrote this inscription on the gate of Rabelais’ “Abbey of Theleme,” “Fay ce que vouldras” which means “Do what thou wilt.” Cafe Rabelais is the perfect setting to do just that!

My three year old granddaughter LOVES tortilla chips with salsa. I recently bought Wright’s of Texas Fresh Red Salsa for her, only to find out that it is made right here in Katy, Texas! What a pleasant surprise!
Carina, our salsa expert, thinks it is delicious! It is all natural and has no artificial preservatives or added sugar. It can be found in HEB locally or ordered from wrightsoftexas.com.
When I drove past Westheimer Lakes North Park Plaza Shopping Center I saw the sign for a new restaurant named Sapore and thought, “Oh, another Japanese restaurant!” Well, surprise, it’s an Italian restaurant and “sapore” means to “taste” or to “savor” in Italian.
We have enjoyed Sapore Ristorante located at 6734 Westheimer Lakes North Park Plaza in Katy, Texas both dining in and take out. The spaghetti bolognese, pollo alla Marsala, and pollo parmigiana were wonderful, as was their presentation! Each plate emerges from the kitchen artfully decorated. This is definitely the place for a fine dining experience in Katy.
