Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • JANUARY 21, 2000 OUT ON THE BAYOU 17 Eating Out RESTAURANT REVIEWS Dipping into the cool saute byTRAYCEDISKIN Upon entering the lobby of the REMINGTON GRILL in River Oaks, guests are greeted by a wall-sized painting of several well- dressed men sitting around a table. Rendered in brilliant, wet reds and deep navy blacks, this scene could be a weekly club gathering of the good ol' boys, or a post Depression-era business meeting replete with cigars and scotch. Either way, the canvas perfectly fits Remington Grill. Similar paintings adorn inside walls, providing a contrast between the vibrant paint against the dark wood walls and furniture. We settled in with some Pinot Cirigio ($7 a glass), and then tried to imagine the place with more customers than us. It was an early lunch on a weekday, but I've seen other tiny neighborhood establishments packed during the same time. The bread basket impressed me, not so much because it was more than your run-of- the-mill basket, but instead because of the diverse selection of thin breads, including some good ones with creamy smoked mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes and parmesan baked right in. The rosemary bread was less earth-shattering, but just as fresh, as was the more traditional sourdough. With such innovation in the bread, I was surprised the menu offerings weren't more adventurous. The grilled steak, beef and chicken options seemed like solid choices, but hardly anything seemed to stray from classic grill cuisine. Remington Grill 1919 Briar Oaks Lane 713-403-2631 Food: £>&&£> Service: &£>&& Value: &&& Scene: C? CT C '' Opt for bread, water at home OK, if you really must Fine for most Worth the drive, so live a little As good as it gets G R We started with the most unusual item—a plate of Avocado Fries ($6.25). These thick slices of avocado are breaded in thick bits of toasty batter, deep-fried and served with a Bourbon-flavored ketchup. While there's something wonderful about the creamy texture that oozes from the batter after a bite, the tiniest driblet of sauce overpowered the avocado. On my second bite (okay, maybe my fifth), 1 went for the control group and tried the fries without sauce. Still, a beautiful, flavorless goo. After such a striking sauce in the Bourbon ketchup, I was surprised to find no dipping options for the Jumbo Lump Crab Quesadillas ($10). These consisted of I L L shredded crab pieces and bits of roasted corn, yellow and red bell pepper, and the slightest hint of melted jack cheese. Although I loved the absence of the typical gloppy cheese of quesadillas, the ingredients did have a difficult time staying together between the finely toasted tortillas. The mingling of fresh vegetables and seafood, and only a silky hint of cheese transformed this dish into an incredibly flavorful choice. The Oyster Stew ($7.25) is a bit of a misnomer, with only four small oysters floating in the salmon colored base. Change its name to something like "Creamy Ovster Bisque," however, and you have a rich, delicious soup that isn't overly fishy or salty. Loyally sticking by the seafood, I ordered Crab Cakes ($16), and was surprised to find this plural-sounding item delivered with only one fluffy, lonely crab cake on a bed of wilted spinach. The thickness of the patty turned the edges golden brown, while allowing the inside to remain a clump of fresh meat that tasted great. The Sauteed Snapper ($16) was a bit tix> bare on top, but its own slightly briny flavor emerged easily and heartily. On the bottom, the saute lent a respectable, if uneventful, bite of garlic, pepper and lemon. The entire fillet would benefit from a baste in this saute. The fingerling potatoes were attractive in their flat, oblong shapes, but a bit dry and salty. Again, we would have appreciated a dipping component, even the bourbon ketchup. The service at Remington Grill was helpful and attentive, if a bit cold. The formality seemed to breed a certain amount of stuffiness. If you are looking for a dining experience both elegant and impressive, there still seems to be so many other neighborhood choices equally as classy. But if you don't mind spending time in the River Oaks scene, you'll find a more than reliable meal here.
