The Perry family opened its first restaurant in 1979 in Southeast Houston as a modest meat market called Perry’s Butcher Shop and Deli. In 1986, Chris Perry persuaded his father Bob to add dining tables, which eventually led to an expansion and the opening of a second market. As the markets gained popularity, Chris opened Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille in 1993. The original two butcher shops are also still in operation as Perry & Sons Market & Grille. Continue reading

It’s that crazy time of year with all the shopping and the packages and the shopping. It is also a fantastic time to gather the family for a super slice of Americana and take in the sites and sounds and flavor of the season. One of our very favorites places to find all this is in Grapevine. The city takes Christmas very seriously, and has a beautiful downtown display of holiday lights, a gorgeous tree in the gazebo and plenty of interesting shops to take in for gifts of all sorts. Grapevine is also a nice destination for restaurants with very few chains to be found, especially on Main Street. This is where we found Napoli’s Cafe, a fun Italian eatery that is serving up some primo cuisine. Continue reading

When….the…moon…hits…your…eye…like…a big-a’…pizza pie….
Just a few weeks ago, this was a cute little Mom & Pop dining destination on the main thoroughfare (yes, Main Street) in downtown Grapevine, Napoli’s. The pizzas were good, and you could get a nice meatball or eggplant sandwich at lunchtime. For dinner, pizza was a popular choice.
I’ve always been fond of their eggplant parmesan sandwiches, and the gelato selections in the little room they opened some time back next to the dining room are lovely. Continue reading

Hunkered down in the mess of construction rests a simple village of restaurants that includes a Bob’s Steakhouse outpost, a Fireside Pies, and something fairly tasty called Winewood Grill, all tucked away just off the bow of that nightmarish road rework alongside Grapevine, Texas. Also joining in the square is a newish anchor that has been running strong since October 2011, Mia Dia From Scratch.
Mia Dia is cheffed by Gabriel DeLeon sho you may remember from La Margarita in Irving, and Masaryk Modern Mexican Kitchen in Addison which no longer exists. The chef might have been a foreshadowing of the scene to come and joins well executed Mex-Mex in the area like Abraham Salum’s Komali in Uptown and Mesa Veracruz in Oak Cliff as prime examples of how technique, use of fresh imaginative ingredients and the love for proper Mexican cookery should be plated.
