Elderflower Royale

Vesper... I thought the same thing about that much Angostura being overpowering. Thanks for the tip about Peychaud's!

Hottest restaurant right now?

Zelko Bistro - features Chef Jamie Zelko's AWESOME New American Comfort Food

Boada - Chef Arturo Boada's new venture... haven't been yet myself, but there has been lots of buzz about his recent split with longtime business partner Bill Sadler and Arturo may feel like he has something to prove... so the food will likely be amaze-balls.

Julia's Bistro - Modern Mexican food that wows every time.

Best Restaurant Lemonade Hunt

On the hunt for the best glass of lemonade in South Florida. Stand-outs, twisted additions or unusual preparations are a plus... alcoholic or non. (I am guessing that a good glass of ANYTHING in Miami is gonna have booze in it. ;)

Best Houston Burgers

I realize this thread is older, but there are three Houston burgers that just can't be topped... and I only saw one listed here.

Beck's Prime is the burger's burger. Hearty and meaty with an awesome texture.

BRC, the amazing Gastropub on Shepherd, offers their slightly sweet Pub Burger as a traditional sandwich AND as a topper for the Pub Burger Bowl... a 'salad' that features garden greens, maple bacon, avocado and their housemade ranch dressing... tossed with the Pub Burger, cut into sixteenths, and ... wait for it... french fries.

Perhaps the most obvious omission from this list of 'bests'... Mockingbird Bistro's American Kobe Beef Buger, topped with a slab of seared foie gras and served on a slow dough onion bun with frites. The best $32 you will spend this week.

Honorable Mention: The Black Bean Burger at Baba Yega in Montrose is the finest veggie burger I have ever tasted.
