To visit Brick & Spoon, I first had to get over my annoyance over the recent rash of restaurants in Houston that have chosen to title themselves via the pairing of two vaguely related things through the conjunction "and." (See Goro & Gun, Fish & The Knife.)

Then, I had convince myself that I could still have a substantial culinary experience at Brick & Spoon even if my own taste preferences preemptively eliminated one entire section of themenu. (Sorry, no "Big Spoon Bloody Mary" for me. I am one of three people in the United States who actively dislikes this cocktail. And, yes, I have been to a doctor.)

But I resolved these existential challenges and skipped off to Brick & Spoon one cool weekday morning.

I'm right there with you on Bloody Marys. Their smell is intoxicating and one of the most wonderful in the world, but they taste so bad I can't even get one sip down. (I try about every 5 years or so, just to see if my tastes have changed.)
