Pico's Mex-Mex Debuts Private Label Tequila
To complement his sumptuous Mexican dishes, Arnaldo Richards offers his own private label tequila at Pico's Mex-Mex. Pico's Mex-Mex Restaurant Single Barrel (Special Reserve) Reposado Tequila by Casa Noble has debuted at the Bellaire eatery. The spirit is 100 percent blue agave tequila and triple distilled for a smooth taste at Casa Noble's Mexican estate. Shots at Pico's are $10 and margaritas are $12. Richards says he prefers his straight up, but the margaritas, made with Cointreau and fresh squeezed lime juice, are also good. Pico's Mex-Mex, 5941 Bellaire Blvd., Houston, TX 77081, 713-662-8383.
 
Creative Crawfish at Backstreet Café
It's mudbug time along the Gulf Coast, and Backstreet Café is celebrating with some tempting twists on the seasonal crawfish. Executive chef Hugo Ortega grills the usually boiled crustaceans, puts them on pizza, in soup, in beignets, in cheesecakes and even stuffs them into mushrooms. Just keep in mind that you've only got a few short months to check out Ortega's creations before the season winds down. Backstreet Café, 1103 S. Shepherd Dr., Houston, TX 77019, 713-521-2239.
