Diverse as Houston’s dining scene is, it’s nice to escape down the back highways of Texas every once in a while, in search of barbecue, kolaches, Tex-Mex, and … haute cuisine? Yes indeed. These days you can find steak tartare, dosas, natural wines, and entire tasting menus sourced from on-site gardens and bee colonies (!), in out-of-the-way places where you’d least expect them, like Irving, Spicewood, and Dickinson (you read that right, Dickinson). There are interesting, new, surprising things to eat and drink in hot spots like Austin and Fredericksburg, too. Try a food and wine trek through Texas the next time you need a getaway. You’ll be downright amazed by the deliciousness that awaits.
