Press critic Katharine Shilcutt "thoroughly enjoyed" craft beer and burger joint Witchcraft Tavern & Provision Co., the Delicious Concepts restaurant that replaced Dragon Bowl Asian Bistro. "Witchcraft is neither wholly craft beer bar nor wholly restaurant, but can be either or both depending on your needs. It's the clownfish of restaurants, with a simultaneous hermaphroditic quality to it that's refreshing and enjoyable. Witchcraft can cater to light or heavy appetites, beer and wine drinkers, vegetarians and carnivores alike." [Houston Press]
Chronicle critic Alison Cook awards one star to Salvadoran restaurant Pupuseria y Panaderia Emanuel. "The appeal of Emanuel's pupusas is largely textural for me: I love the way the soft, yielding warmth of the masa cakes' interiors contrasts with the tight, crisp surfaces freckled brown from the griddle. When you break one of the palm-size discs open, a ropy ooze of elastic white cheese spills out, which makes eating the pupusa an entertainment of sorts, or at least a test of motor skills."
