On my last night in Houston, Glen and I met our friend Mark at the new, Brooklyn Athletic Club.
I couldn’t wait to check out this place – everything Shepard Ross does is amazing!
This place did not disappoint.
Besides all the fun BACyard sports including spaces for bocce, horseshoes, badminton or volleyball…
There’s a nice patio in front too and super cool fire pits to sit around as well.
You can also pull up a stool and sit and enjoy a cocktail, at the fun “watch the kitchen” bar inside.
As expected, the wine list is varied and interesting, packed with lots of can’t wait to try soon selections.
What about the food you ask?
The couple of items we got were not just great, they were plate-licking, out of this world!
The boys loved the short rib mac n cheese.
The tuna was perfect.
But the best thing we ate had to be the sweet potato gnocchi w/mushrooms and cream.
Seriously, I’m still dreaming about it.
The cake was a perfect sweet treat to finish the evening.
Sometimes new restaurants need a little while to get the menu figured out and to find their mojo…
Not this one - go now.
And don’t forget to order the gnocchi!
