Fruity Pebbles Ice Cream Sandwiches Make Montrose Hotspot’s Beautiful New ‘Late Summer’ Menu

ONE OF HOUSTON'S most buzzed-about new restaurants has made some fun, seasonal additions to its offerings in its "late summer menu," including several fun new desserts!


The must-try desserts include honey cake with ricotta Chantilly, chocolate peanut butter panna cotta and Fruity Pebble ice cream "sammies."

Chef Jonathan Wicks and Food and Beverage Director Chris Fleischman of Tonight & Tomorrow and Bar No. 3 at the recently renovated and expanded La Colombe d'Or hotel in Montrose are touting new additions to the dinner menu, too, that include heirloom tomato salad, hush puppies, campechana, pork belly, octopus, fazzoletti, Berkshire pork chops, whole fish and a butcher's cut of lamb. New lunch options include a layered club sandwich and what they call the Lyon burger.

"The late summer menu at Tonight & Tomorrow, a full-service restaurant serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, continues to celebrate modern European cuisine with Southern influences," notes a rep for the eateries. "Tonight & Tomorrow offers multiple indoor dining spaces designed to hold intimate or group dining and a large outdoor dining space in La Colombe d'Or's sculpture garden."

“I WISH I came here sooner to experience this amazing city,” says advanced sommelier Rachel Van Til of her move to Houston just one year before the pandemic lockdown. When Covid appeared in 2020, along with layoffs and closings, it led to a career swerve for Van Til, a working mom who was a sommelier at Pappas Steakhouse. She took over the wine program at The Clubs at Houston Oaks, a posh (initiation fees can range into the six figures) members-only club northwest of the city with 10 lodges, 17 lakes, 900 acres and six dining options. Speaking of lots of good food and vino, the club’s 2022 Wine and Food Classic is this February 12 — it’s a great chance to taste hundreds of wines from around the world and learn about them from winemakers and professionals. “It’s our largest event of the year and it’s open to the public.” In our Q&A, Rachel dishes on her favorite date night, best wines to try this year and her brush with the me-too movement!
