CALLING ALL CHOWHOUNDERS!
The second Houston Chowhounders outing will take place at A Taste of Portugal on Saturday, August 2, 2003 at 6:00 p.m. Chef and owner Jorge Fife will be serving a specially prepared "chef's selection" dinner, including a wide range of appetizers and entrees reflecting the rich and diverse heritage of Portugese cuisine. I have requested that he include bacalhau, piri piri and my favorite, flaming chorizo. Jorge will charge a flat rate of $20 per person, which will include drinks, appetizers, mains, etc. Jorge is as marvelous a host as he is a cook, and everyone should have a great time. I hope we can see some out-of-town chowhounders come in as well!
PLEASE be sure and RSVP no later than Monday, July 21. Its not a big place, so an accurate head count is important. You can RSVP to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jorge wanted me to mention that everyone is welcome to bring your own wine or other libations (I will probably bring a bottle of Port), and that he has no "corking" fee. Also, check your Houston Chronicle Friday, July 4, as Alison Cook is going to be there tonight to do a full write up for the July 4th edition of the paper.
A Taste of Portugal is located at 11650A Jones Road, in northwest Houston (about a mile or so north of 1960). Their phone number is (281) 469-8691. If you want to review the menu and learn a little bit more about the place, click the link below.
I have been requested by Chowhound management to ask that you not reply to this post for organizing the outing, but please feel free to contact me via email for questions or to RSVP.
Hope to see you there!
