Houston's Rising Star Chefs

Chef Randy Rucker is conducting a poll for Houston's best "rising star" chef. He wants to know who is your favorite rising star and why. And he's going to throw a party for the winner.

I have some ideas, but I will keep them to myself. I don't want to influence the contest.

Just found your blog because I was searching to find what people though about certain foods that I love! Looks like we have similar tastes! Thanks for you blog posts! I look forward to trying places I haven't been yet!

Have you ever had the mango chicken at Mezza? Whoever makes that should win. The Kafta beef wrap is not bad either.

I run the restaurant search site Urbanspoon and we've recently started covering Houston. I wanted to introduce you to the site.

We pull together restaurant reviews from the newspaper critics (Houston Press, Houston Chronicle, etc) as well as reviews from food bloggers. For example, here's our page on Shade:

One of the main things we're trying to do is to help people find out what bloggers have to say about restaurants. I was wondering if you would be interested in showing your restaurant reviews on Urbanspoon. Users will see a teaser of your review on our site, and we show a link to click through to your blog and read the full review.

For instance, if you wanted to add your post on your meal at Feast, here's a page that explains how it works:

Thousands of new people will see your blog posts every month. Check out our blog leaderboard for more details:

In any case, I like your blog and I wanted to say hello! I grew up in Houston and really miss the food! We're just getting started there -- any feedback you have is much appreciated.
