MONTROSEThe Houston Press's Mai Pham lists five places to go for a prix-fixe meal for those days you're in need of a dressed up lunch. At No. 1 is Da Marco: "The three-course lunch prix-fixe at Da Marco has increased from $26 to $29 in the past year or so, but the breadth and quality of the choices you get, coupled with the old-school white jacket and bow-tie five-star service, makes it hard to beat. To start, you get your choice of items like shaved celery salad with beets and pecorino, or a daily special soup, like the utterly delectable butternut squash with corn and crab I had recently. For the main course, choose items from the a la carte menu, including a pappardelle with wild boar ragu, calf liver veneziana with polenta, or the rich and hearty chianti-braised short ribs served over risotto."

UPPER KIRBY— Popular Japanese restaurant Kata Robata is featuring a temporary dessert: A green tea cheesecake log served on a chestnut puree, alongside a scoop of red bean ice cream on top of crumbled buckwheat. (We can personally attest to its deliciousness.) This treat will stay on the menu for about another month. [Eaterwire]

ON THE MAPEater National lists the 50 most anticipated restaurants from around the country. Ronnie Killen's upcoming Killen's Barbecue made the cut: "Houston doesn't have to wait too long for its hottest opening of the year: chef and restaurateur Ronnie Killen plans to open his new barbecue restaurant in Pearland as soon as this very month. Look for a custom-made barbecue pit, decor that throws back to a 1950s-era school cafeteria, and quality meat." [-EN-]
