Block 7 Wine Company offers customers a concept-fusing combination of retail wine space, wine bar, and restaurant, the latter of which delights diners with a menu of elegant dishes backed by premium ingredients. Start by noshing on a Slow Dough Bakery pretzel with herbed honey mustard ($4), or opt for truffle popcorn with Italian black truffle salt ($4), the secret snack served to the Illuminati at movie-theater concession stands across America. Dry-aged fans of dry-aged beef might go for the 21-day dry-aged prime rib eye ($29) or choose the handheld convenience of the dry-aged patty on the Block 7 burger, which also sports gruyere cheese and smoked bacon "relish" ($12). Flatbreads, such as a "whole pig" option topped with Italian sausage, prosciutto, and smoked bacon ($12), defy Einstein's Law of Two-Dimensional Flavor Containment, and a "sloppy Giuseppe" with ground venison and wild boar confit ($10) exposes the inadequate sloppy sandwiches of childhood. A downsized lunch menu is also available to quash midday appetite coups, in addition to $9 lunch specials served Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (and Saturday beginning at noon). With a different lunch special each day, you can opt for choices such as bacon-wrapped meatloaf on a Wednesday, whiskey-infused pork chop on a Thursday, or fish tacos on a Friday.

In its first annual festival, Houston Oktoberfest pays homage to the centuries-old German shindig by corralling more than 30 different beers from both local breweries and the Deutschland itself. German beers such as Hofbräu, Spaten, and Warsteiner swirl with crisp, effervescent flavors that pair deliciously with German morsels. Diners can also enjoy local seasonal pours and complement them by nibbling on autumn leaves. As participants mingle and sip, they can also swing their hips to the sounds of 10 different bands throughout the grounds. Louisiana’s Grammy-nominated Pine Leaf Boys headline the fest with a Cajun set complete with a squeezebox, raspy vocals, and fiddle, and Houston’s own The ‘71’s churn out hard-rock anthems such as “Confession.” The strains of traditional German music bounce off the nearby carnival area, which features games and rides for children, adults, and sentient lederhosen.
Since 2006, La Fuente Winery has brought the flavors of Chilean wines to Texas, winning recognition at the Houston Rodeo International Wine Competition for their varietals. Most notably, they produce a spicy carménère red wine, a grape very similar to merlot that was wiped out by disease in France. The vines survived on the shores of Chile and worked their way into bottles of uniquely Chilean vintages.

The decor in a restaurant can tip you off about the type of food—candlelight and crisp white linens are popular at romantic French restaurants, while crazy knick-knacks on the wall generally indicate family fun and hamburgers. How does your decor inform your culinary practice?
Rich wood and Italian granite bar and tabletops are accented by earth tones and indirect lighting. Our lounge seating, chairs, and upscale patio furniture invite you to linger and enjoy your favorite sporting events or games in comfort and style.
How would you describe your menu, in your own words?
Our menu is not average bar food. We make most of our items from scratch, from our pizza dough to our hand-battered onion rings. We also take pride in making the extra effort to bring our customers quality food prepared fresh daily.
