WASHINGTON CORRIDOR — Congrats to Laurenzo's, Washington Avenue's go-to spot for prime rib, for making the list of Open Table's Top 10 Diner's Choice Winners. The eatery, known for blending the Italian, American and Mexican heritage of the Laurenzo family, is joined on this list by an eclectic Houston-area bunch, including Chez Nous in Humble, Montrose's Uchi, Costa bravo Bistro in Bellaire and Rudy & Paco in Galveston.

MONTROSE Speaking of Uchi, this Sunday, the restaurant hosts a nine-course extravaganza celebrating the bounty of the Gulf Coast. A portion of your $150-per-person charge goes to the Gulf of Mexico Foundation and Edible Earth Resources. Reservations are limited, so get yours by emailing mwhitenton@uchirestaurants.com or calling 713-522-4808. [EaterWire]

MONTROSE Think a wine list is about a bunch of uptight guys in suits, making funny slurping noises and waxing eloquent over aromas of cat pee? Ok, sure, it can be that. But it's way more fun to check out rapper cum sommelier Bun B's recommendations for what's hot and happening on Underbelly's list. The ever-inventive Chris Shepherd engaged the music superstar and Houston champion for a little help in switching up his selections. The result: casual, approachable recommendations that work for a variety of occasions. [Billboard]

FOURTH WARD We haven't made it in yet, but we're loving the buzz newly opened Moonshiners is getting. Their Yelp reviews show raves on the friendliness of the staff, the fried green tomatoes, beer selection and patio. Also? An apple pie drink? Yeah, we'll check that out. [EaterWire]
