  1. It hasn't been mentioned here, but Sirenuse has already shut their doors.
  2. Grimaldi's seems to be the sanitized, franchised stepchild of the legendary Grimaldi's pizza in Brooklyn: http://www.grimaldis.com/ http://www.patsygrimaldis.com/ They do list a Woodlands location, coming soon. If they're anything like the original Brooklyn store, I can hardly wait.
  3. We looked in East Shore, and the prices that were being asked for townhomes was, to me, absurd. The prices would have been high for a prime inside-the-loop location. I feel bad for the folks who are buying these places; they'll be taking a bath when they decide to sell.
  4. I've had to put Smashburger on my short list. They're a chain, they're from out of state, but they make a very good burger. The list: http://www.yelp.com/list/houstons-best-burgers-houston
  5. They're in Beck's Prime territory in terms of price; I've yet to find a chain that comes close in terms of quality. We'll see how they do.
  6. That's the one I frequent, but the Woodlands to Willowbrook is not a quick drive.
  7. As a foodie, there are a few things I'm embarrassed to admit I really like. The McRib is one of them, as are Jack in the Box tacos. We need a whole new category for these things, delicious non-food foods.
  8. Yep. Landry's bought the Grotto, and ruined it. It's gone from excellent to truly mediocre. But there's good news on the horizon. Tony and his son Jeff are opening a new upscale casual Italian spot on West Grey and Shepherd next year.
  9. Beck's Prime is #1 for me. But it's almost too upscale to be considered fast food. Freebird's is my go-to burrito place, even though there's not one nearby. But a little birdy told me they're coming to the Woodlands in 2Q09. Up here in the Woodlands, Culver's does a superb job. I'm a Whataburger fan, but Culver's edges them out for an excellent fast food burger. But in terms of something that's everywhere, Chick-fil-a is my #1 choice, followed by Jack-in-the-Box (love the tacos, even though they're not actually tacos).
  10. Hubbell & Hudson did buy up the Black Walnuts... sadly, I think they've gone downhill since the acquisition. As far as the other rumors, I find the idea of a Ritz-Carlton tough to fathom; I don't think we have either the business or tourist traffic to justify it.
  11. Hi, Ceilene - This was shortly after I moved in, probably in 2005. At the time they had an office on Research Forest. As far as I know, it's gone now. - Albert P.S. If anyone has run across Treehouse plans, please PM me or e-mail me at albert@nurick.com . Thanks!
  12. When I moved into Trace Creek in 2004, I began a quest to get plans for my home. I called Life Forms - they were no help, saying they didn't keep plans for homes built over 10 years ago. I then called the Woodlands Associations, to see if the plans were on file, as they're supposed to be. Nope. So I hit a dead end. If anyone has plans for a circa 1989 Treehouse, the largest plan with the upstairs office, please drop me a note.
  13. I see why our vet is opposed to it... it looks like it goes right through her office.
  14. My short list: Amici George's Pastaria Spaghetti Western La Baraonda Carrabba's (Kirby and Voss locations only) Damian's IMO Da Marco is overrated.
  15. If you can't compete with Chili's and Applebee's, you deserve to close your doors. And that's what happened. Like many folks, I'd not been to a Bennigan's in years, and had no plans to do so again. I month or so ago I passed one, and wondered how they stayed in business. I guess I got my answer.
