Setting a New "Table"

The evolution of La Table on Post Oak continues with the arrival of James Friedberg, formally of Le Cirque and Gilt in New York. He’s taken the reins as executive chef at Uptown’s La Table, debuting new menus for lunch, dinner and brunch.


Downstairs, at the relaxed Marché, new offerings include roasted veggie cassolette with poached egg and halibut accompanied with rice pilaf, while the more formal Château upstairs boasts tableside-prepared classics like the dover sole meuniére, flown in fresh from France daily and fileted in the dining room.

Glimpse the new iteration this weekend at brunch with Santa (mimosas included!), Saturday and Sunday from 11am-3pm. Or make a reservation for New Year’s Eve, when Friedberg will be cooking up decadent year-end specialties, like ricotta dumplings filled with black truffle, and the Baba Au Rhum for dessert: rum-soaked cake with pastry cream and seasonal fruit.

Duos, Trios and Teams: ‘Next-Generation’ Mother-Daughter Leppert Duo Debuts

Clare Leppert and Clementine, the Cavachon. Leigh Leppert and Benny, the Bernedoodle.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
