Houston Steaks & Ribs, Toronto, ON

I met my pals, Deb, Franca and Liz, for supper tonight ... we worked together in the mid 1990s. They are with the company the company we worked for was eventually sold to.

Almost 20 years later, we are still close friends and try to get together on a regular basis.

We had supper at Houston Steaks & Ribs (Yonge/Wellington).

It was a busy spot.

Here are Liz and Deb ...

Here are me and Franca ...

Liz and Deb ordered the Seafood Linguini (sautéed shrimp, scallops and lobster meat in rosé sauce topped with arugula and citrus gremolata).

Franca ordered tilapia and rice.

I ordered the Roasted Chicken (1/2 chicken marinated in their mixture of spices and fresh herbs; served with red wine demi-glace sauce and French fries).

We all enjoyed our meals and cleaned our plates. Liz and I split a bottle of red wine.

Here are the four of us ... Liz, Deb, me and Franca ...

It's been a while since the four of us have gotten together and it was great to catch up ... and there was a lot to catch up on!

I hadn't been to Houston before and liked it. The service was good ... Stacy took good care of us. She let us sit for a long time afterwards so we could sit and yak. I'd go back.
