Brooklyn Athletic Club, or as Katharine Shilcutt of the Houston Press describes it, is "like someone created a tiny, unpretentious country club and smacked it down in the middle of Houston. And there's a nice restaurant attached." Pretty much. I almost wished I was donning my favorite pair of khakis and sun hat. If the weather wasn't so hot and muggy that day, I would have even been up for a game of bocce ball in their outdoor gaming area.
I went with some of my favorite classics, mussels that tasted like bacon and gnocchi made from paleo-friendly potato. Yes, this meal is pre-Paleo, which I should probably discuss in a later post.
