Meaty Oysters: New Houston Restaurant’s Over-the-Top Dish Should Not Be Missed – Papercity

- - Category: Media
We were at B&B Butchers and ordered the Carpet Bagger on the Half Shell, four fried oysters ($18) in crockery “shells” that came out on a long rectangular platter. Yes, there were oysters, but there were also substantial pieces of thick-cut bacon and filet mignon, all skewered together and topped with Roquefort cheese, a Roquefort sauce and a touch of sriracha. Moist, seasoned perfectly, and rich, Carpet Bagger on the Half Shell is an excellent vehicle for one of my favorite foods. The meats were not an afterthought, either. The pork was slightly crispy, and the steak was tender. All three flavors

The Skinny – B & B Butchers (Steakhouse & Butcher Shop) – Urbanswank

- - Category: Media
Houston has had its share of new steakhouse openings this year but B & B Butchers is the one that is transforming the way we think about restaurants where meat is king. When we first visited the Heights steakhouse, our minds immediately drifted to thoughts of Peter Lugers Steakhouse in Brooklyn (New York). Without spending too much time on the comparison, well just say they are holding their own against one of the nation’s best. At B & B Butchers, two floors allow for two different (but equally divine) dining experiences. One is more reminiscent of a traditional steakhouse with

Houston’s 16 Best Bar & Restaurant Openings this Summer – Thrillist

- - Category: Media
This NY-style dual-concept steakhouse and butcher shop has flawlessly carved its way into Houston’s be-seen dining scene. The hybrid keeps a sturdy crowd, so you’ll need to make a reservation if you want to go beast mode on things like a USDA prime porterhouse for two (dry-aged in house, of course), chicken-fried prime pork chops, and lump crab-stuffed trout. Get it all with superior steakhouse sides and seriously good classic tinctures (two of which are on tap). See the article at the Thrillist.

B & B Butchers and Restaurant – Inner Looper

- - Category: Media
By Hank Lewis Houston’s restaurant scene is an ever-evolving mix of concepts, cuisines and locales.  The Inner Loop is one of several culinary Nexuses that Houston enjoys, with old standby’s soldiering on as well as new faces coming and going, with a good number remaining. One of the newer faces I had the pleasure of trying on two occasions in the past couple of months is B & B Butchers and Restaurant on Washington Avenue.  They are self-described as “a butcher shop with a classic, upscale steakhouse.”  They’ve received a fair amount of good press since opening, and proprietor Benjamin
