NOTE: : Ross, Kelly and I went to dinner at Solero, a new downtown Houston
restaurant. It's in an old (1897) building. It is primarily a tapas
restaurant, but there are both small and large portions, and customers make
a meal off a selection of these. It's definitely not authentic Spanish, but
rather a mix of Spanish and Latin American. The food was delicious. Several
of the recipes were published in the Chronicle. This is the only one of
them we tried, and it was fabulous!
