ike drama: hungry?

i'm heading back to houston today after almost 3 weeks in LA. i am told my townhouse sustained the wrath of ike with no damage, the cats are happy and healthy, but i am still without power. hence, i don't see any home cooked meals in my future.

you guys are probably pretty hungry by now too or longing for some grub that is more organic or doesn't require the use of a can opener first.

here is a list of neartown/downtown/montrose/upper kirby restaurants that have been reported as open on the houston chronicle or houston press' websites. note: some of these businesses may be serving a small or limited menu and may not even have A/C.

beaver's
gravitas
bb's kitchen
mark's
hugo's
empire cafe
paulie's
maria selmas, el pueblito, lucky burger
chuy's
souper salads (w. gray)
christian's tailgate (midtown)
goode company BBQ, seafood, and taqueria

the houston chowhounds and i will be meeting downtown for lunch at the lake house on discovery green tomorrow. our inside source tells us they will be resuming operations tomorrow at 11 AM.

what better time than now for some hot comfort food while sitting around with friends enjoying the nice post-hurricane temperatures?

You're so much better than Yelp.

The Flying Saucer downtown is open. Not the best food, but the fantastic beer more than makes up for it.
