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!

Three Wines from Cantele

A friend who is associated with Cantele sent me a media sample of a few of their wines. They are produced in Puglia, often known as the heel of Italy's boot, from local grapes. 2011 Cantele Negroamaro Rosato - Aromas of cherry syrup with floral notes. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol and medium acidity with a fresh cherry flavor. It worked well with our dinner of soft chicken tacos with tomatillo salsa. Whole Foods has it for $13.99. 2010 Cantele Primitivo - Aromas of black plum, dark cherry and licorice. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the aromas and a slightly spicy, long finish. Very smooth and drinkable. I served it with barbequed and smoked pulled pork sandwiches and it was delicious. Available at Spec's for about $15. 2009 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva - Ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the a
