I knew when the man with a megaphone came out at 10:00 pm to announce it was “BURGER TIME!” that the folks at Holeman & Finch had taken Ra’s Al Ghul’s advice to Bruce Wayne about theatricality rather seriously. Or,…

Houston Rocket

A couple of years ago, the Chronicle’s Alison Cook addressed Houston’s “Lump Crab Syndrome” and lamented restaurants’ overuse of the otherwise welcome crustacean. At the time, I would have suggested a crowning fried egg as the next new fad, long…
