Watch Ortega and Shepherd Praise Houston

As part of its Houston is Tasty campaign, the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau produced this video featuring Underbelly's Chris Shepherd and Hugo's Hugo Ortega talking about the various ways in which the city is awesome. It's part of an effort to feature the two chefs who are finalists for the James Beard Award Best Chef Southwest that will be given out on Monday in New York. In the clip, the chefs are joined by celebrity Houstonians including actor Jim Parsons, musician Lyle Lovett and boxer George Foreman.
