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!

'A Beautiful Mind'

HERE’S AN ARTFUL way to stay cool this month. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston rolls out a six-film mini-series The Mathematician Moviegoer on Saturday, July 9, beginning with Giant (1953), George Stevens’ epic if somewhat shambolic celebration of the transformative power of black gold, starring three of 1950s Hollywood’s sexiest actors: Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean. (At one point Dean, a dedicated “method” actor, manages to pull off an Oscar-worthy scene with his body completely covered in crude oil.)
