I've been in London four and a half years and am looking at a move to Texas (Houston) in a few months' time. I'm pretty omnivorous, and have eaten widely at chowhound's suggestions in London over the years, and enjoy basically all ethnic food and fine dining, probably leaning more towards modernist than classical.
My wife is not a fan of subcontinental food, in all its diverse manifestations, so probably the single biggest loss relative to London won't be much of an issue for me.
So, what else am I going to miss, and which places should I make part of a farewell tour?
I gather that Houston does well foe Mexican, Barbecue, South American, Vietnamese and at least some varieties of Chinese, but I'm worried about Lebanese, West African and Malay options - as well as french wines, cheeses and ingredients.
I've pencilled in a very traditional English meal at either Wilton or Rules (other suggestions gratefully accepted) maybe come grouse season, and a meal at either the Ledbury or the Square, and again would appreciate advice as to which to pick. And I have a long weekend in Paris planned to eat a lot of cheese. Beyond that it's open season...
Thanks in advance
