RICE MILITARYThe Chopping Block opened this week in the former V21/Fusion space on Washington Avenue next to Kung Fu. Despite the scary name, the restaurant is Houston's latest high-end burger concept with a mix of creative toppings and interesting ingredients. For example, the Mona Lisa burger has Gorgonzola cheese, sundried tomatoes, olives, pancetta, sliced red onions, and arugula on a Brioche bun. Also, unlike some other burger joints, it's open until 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. [Facebook]
