The Perry family opened its first restaurant in 1979 in Southeast Houston as a modest meat market called Perry’s Butcher Shop and Deli.

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

If you missed last week’s craveRADIO you missed plenty of great action. We started the first hour with Wade Hampton. yes, that Wade Hampton. He was our own personal rock star in studio. Wade is a mega DJ, and was part of the Starck Club scene back in the 80’s. He also was behind the W Hotel’s Ghostbar. Wade is now one of the owners of SISU in Uptown Dallas and runs the entertainment program at the hopping club. He is also behind the Starck Project which should be released soon. It is a look back at one of the most important clubs of its era, and rivaled that of any in the world.

Also on the program we enjoyed chatting with chef  Jason Harper from Trio Café in Colleyville.  Harper is knocking it out of the park in the suburb with simple but kicked up soup and sandwich style lunches, and in the evening with his special flare of New American cuisine. Harper is from a restaurant family and has an austere history working with great chefs, most recently with Kent Rathbun.
