    Oh yeah, it is on the radar! A bunch of Houston chowhounds are going there on 12/8 to celebrate fulmers birthday, for a 6 course tasting menu. I will not be able to make it (not in my budget), but I'll let you know what they say. So far either people love it or hate it. It's brand new so that is usually how it goes in the beginning.

        Nothing on here, but if you google Bedford Restaurant, Houston, Tx you will find a bunch of info. The houston ch's have a private yahoo group, and there are no reviews on there at this point, but there are on B4-U-Eat, Yelp, and other places in Houston. Another new place named Textile with Scott Tycer recently opened and they are going neck and neck, so this will be interesting to see how it pans out.

          thank you very much! i did run across the b4-u-eat thing when i googled. i'm gonna go try yelp-- won't be as good as the word on chowhound of course, but i'll wait patiently to see the post 12/8 dinner comments on the texas board (where i feel a bit lost & thanks again for your help). :)

                omg i somehow overlooked your update Danhole, & just saw this! thanks so very much for the links, i would have never found these local reviews. the pictures and descriptions of the courses are better than i could have hoped for. i hope this restaurant does well in houston, i think the chef is very gifted-- and i have a friend working one of the major stations, so that is why i am so interested! thanks so much again. that emerald bar sounds over-the-top gorgeous btw-- i'd be afraid to set a drink down LOL! :)

                  SK,

                  I was going to start hunting you down to get you to look over here to see these. Keep checking back and as I find more reviews from people I actually know I will keep posting them here for you.

        Hey there - just wanted to let you know that I went with the Houston crew to Bedford a few weeks ago and posted (with pics) on my blog...it was good. I will definitely go back.
