Alicia’s Mexican Grille finally opened its much-anticipated Katy location last month. The move to Katy brings the total number of Alicia's to four, with its siblings in Cypress, Spring and West Houston. Owner David Herrera has been working with food since he was a teenager and is excited to expand westward. While the menu is extensive, everything is made in-house from the margaritas to the tortillas. Alicia's fajitas also have an excellent reputation, which should make it a solid addition to Katy's growing dining scene. Chronicle critic Alison Cook ranked Alicia's 94 on her recent top 100, writing that even ambitious dishes hit the mark.
Heading south on Highway 6, Guru Burger and Crepes in Sugar Land Town Square is the latest restaurant to feed Houston ongoing burger obsession. The eclectic concept comes from the same minds as its nearby neighbor, Latin-sushi fusion restaurant Japaneiro’s. Guru features local and sustainable ingredients complemented by craft beers and wines; it's also the only restaurant in Town Square with the license to fill growlers. Both burger and savory crepes include protein choices such as grass-fed Texas Akaushi, hormone-free chicken or sustainable fisheries yellow fin tuna. Also, every burger is available as a three ounce slider, six ounce single or twelve ounce double. There's even the promise of gluten-free crepe batter. Although Guru lacks milkshakes, there is a banana nutella crepe available for dessert.
