Casual Dining “My wife and I gravitate to Houston’s. It’s trendy and one of our favorite spots.” CELEBRITY BARBER JOHNNY CASTELLANOS OF ENGLEWOOD (201) Editor’s Pick FAVORITE LUNCH SPOT Tisha’s Main Ingredient Without fail, my first choice for a healthy lunch, that looks just as good as it tastes, is from Tisha’s Main Ingredient in Westwood. Whether I dine in or take out, I always opt for the chicken avocado salad, topped with sweet pickles, onions and cranberries and sprinkled with crispy bacon. The combination of savory and sweet gets me every time. If you want an appetizer while you wait, the roasted eggplant with avocado, egg and grilled shrimp is out of this world. Not only is the food an incredible and delectable mix of Asian fusion, modern French and traditional American, but the plating is beautiful. And don’t forget to quench your thirst with Tisha’s fruit-infused water. Besides the amazing food, the black-and-white polka dot décor is adorable and puts a smile on my face.
