my son, Steve Harris's photo of a legendary Houston chef,
shot recently on an overpass walkway near downtown...
the image will appear in an upcoming edition of
when they do a feature on Chris
& his new restaurant, where he will be the chef-owner,
WONDERFUL, Stevie !!!!
just as an interesting aside, to give you a little information on Chris
and his famous Catalan Restaurant, I will quote the following:
When Shepherd left in May, the owners, Clark and Cooper,
said they'll rebrand Catalan as a different concept
with a chef they likely will be ready to announce soon.
Lest the move be interpreted as a repudiation of the direction Shepherd has taken at Catalan,
Clark and Cooper frame it as more of a salute to him
and the success he has made of the restaurant.
"Chris can keep doing farm-to-table, he can keep his own identity," says Clark.
"All the things he's done at Catalan--
the Sunday Suppers, the culinary tours, the farm-driven menu--
we feel grateful to have been a part of it,
and we thought it was unjust to try to continue it without him."
Good job, Chris...
you can bet we will be there for the opening of
