Randy Evans, whose cooking at Haven endeared him to legions of Houston diners, has been a busy man this past year. He consulted on the menu for Table 57 Dining & Drinks (among others), which is located in the H-E-B store on San Felipe Street, and appeared on Food Network’s Kitchen Inferno.
Much to the dismay of his local fans, Evans will soon move to San Antonio to assume the title of director of restaurants for the Texas-based H-E-B. But before he departs, anyone can get a seat at what might be one of his final dinners in the area for a while, according to The Houston Press.
On Saturday, Evans will star at the Galveston Island Food & Wine Festival, where he will serve a menu designed to pair with Long Meadow Ranch wines. The $75 meal includes a shrimp corn dog paired with Long Meadow’s sauvignon blanc and crab ramen accompanied by the California winery’s Farmstead Pinot Noir. The festival, which is now six years old, kicks off on Thursday with a Chaine des Rotisseurs dinner and closes on Sunday with a wine and Champagne brunch at Hotel Galvez.
