Churrascos at Lake Pointe

As a long time fan of the Cordua restaurants, I was pleased when I learned that they were opening a Churrascos near my home. I was fortunate to be able to attend the mock service prior to opening; I had the Churrasco steak dinner that night and it was excellent as expected. We went  again for dinner shortly after that and had another positive experience (our only issue was one wine by the glass offering of decidedly corked wine which was immediately replaced). I had the seafood soup and tenderloin salad that evening and I would recommend both.
This morning, we went to try the new Sunday Brunch and we were just blown away. This is by far the best brunch in the Sugar Land area; it is priced at $27 per person and I added the $10 bottomless mimosa option as well. Diverse options range from four different green salads, ceviche, soup, plantain crusted fried shrimp and calamari, an array of grilled veggies, an omelet bar, a crepe bar, a carving station with beef tenderloin and a whole suckling pig, empanadas, fresh fruit and a dessert assortment (I had the flan) plus numerous other items that I did not get a chance to try. Raul, the manager, stopped by the table to introduce himself and let us know that the buffet would continue evolving, although I am not sure that it could get much better.
The restaurant decor is interesting and unique with a long wall of windows looking out on the patio next to the lake. Good food, an interesting wine list, great service with a nice view.
Highly recommended!

Nocera - A Native Grape from Sicily

Nocera is a native grape from Sicily. It comes from the Messina province which is located in the northeast. Nocera is a quality red wine grape that is most known as a blender in the red wines of the Faro DOC. I had the opportunity to taste some pure versions (which according to Wine Searcher are rare) this week at a trade tasting held at Roma Restaurant in Houston. Wine production in the region dates back to the 14th Century BC, however, phylloxera decimated the vineyard area in 1881 leaving it at a fraction of its original size. The area boasts a Mediterranean climate with sunny days and coastal breezes, moderate rainfall, and mild winters, all ideal for grape growing. The Nocera grape is a bluish/black color and has a thick skin which allows for the production of structured wines with prominent tannins which are balanced by good acidity. High alcohol is common. Red wines produced from the grapes are an intense ruby color with purple highlights and aromas and flavors of dark fruits a
