Alton Brown Stops Off In Montrose For Some Good Eats (And Drinks)

By | April 7, 2015

Alton_Brown_Houston_TwitterFood Network star Alton Brown visited Houston over the weekend as part of a national tour, and was able to find enough free time to visit some Houston hotspots for tasty food and drink while in town.

A good portion of those good eats were right here in Montrose, with Eater Houston reporting that Brown stopped off at Blacksmith (1018 Westheimer) for a cortado prepared by internationally renowned barista, John Letoto and some pastries from Common Bond (1706 Westheimer). He then took off outside the city limits for some Killen’s Barbecue, but perhaps next time he can pay a visit to Montrose’s very own Pappa Charlie’s (1205 Richmond).
