Berg Hospitality Group has opened its newest concept, B.B. Lemon, across the street from the group’s famed steakhouse, B&B Butchers & Restaurant. Expect an elevated eatery and bar experience featuring classic food and cocktails that blend the best of owner Benjamin Berg’s favorite cities, Houston and New York.


The old-fashioned-yet-upscale bar setting, complete with green-checkered tablecloths and tufted leather banquettes, serves starters like blue-crab beignets, chili and New England clam chowder. Generously portioned entrees include fish and chips, Chef Tommy’s Falafel Plate, and steak frites. Nostalgic-feeling dessert items include banana pudding and a root beer float.

Wash down with a B.B. Manhattan or a whiskey-fueled No Reservations, or a selection from an impressive wine and beer menu. Cheers!

THERE ARE FEW places in Houston as hallowed as Montrose's Numbers Nightclub. For nearly 50 years now, the nightclub, which started out as a risqué dinner theater in the late '70s before turning into a gay disco in the '80s and then into the dance club and live music venue it is today, has served as a safe haven for generations for Houstonian outliers and mainstreamers alike. And now, thanks to Houston-reared producer, director and fashion designer Marcus Pontello, 33, the venerated Houston nightlife staple is getting the silver screen treatment.
