Oof! $90 dinner will be a no-go for us!
Agreed. Seems a little steep for poboys. We'll stick with Razoos I think.
Also had an app, shrimp creole, and crawfish etouffee. Not just po-boys.

Keep in mind you will still be getting Razoos level food quality for the lower price you seek.
For poboys that's fine. We approach Pappadeaux levels, I'm willing to pay more.

Just looked at the menu at Razzoos. Literally the same meal would be $78 TT&L!

It is - the West Bypass. Or it used to be.

Went to Poche's last night for dinner. The place looks very nice inside. For some reason, I thought I heard someone say it would be a walk-up counter-type restaurant. It is sit down and had a nice atmosphere. It isn't big at all, has a nice bar and big screen TVs on the wall. The menu was still a work in progress but what was available we loved.

Got creole chicken stuffed jalapenos as an appetizer. They came in order of 3 and were really good. I got a fried shrimp po-boy and my son got a fried oyster po-boy. They were cut in half so we split. The fries were good and the po-boys were good. We agreed the shrimp was the better. My wife got shrimp creole. It was a good portioned bowl served on rice. The flavor was great and the okra in it was delicious. My other son got the crawfish etouffee. He loved it and it was a nice portion as well. He cleaned his plate.

All 4 entrees and one app, 4 waters cost about $90 so it is pricy but it is good seafood so we expected it. I would wait a bit to let them get their menu worked out but will definitely be back.


try Tad's for a delicious PoBoy! They're enormous and have a lunch special!

"Dirty Dough Cookies" is coming to Tower Point, Burlington is moving forward at Texas Avenue Crossing, and World Nail Spa in that funky little restaurant building off of Texas Avenue is being rebuilt.

I haven't listened yet.

What is the mayor saying about a development on TAMU System property?

What do you mean? RELLIS is in Bryan like the main campus is in CS. They're doing the substation and the overlay districts. He also mentioned the data center being built over there, which is huge.

4 entrees and an app for $90 is not *expensive." $22 an entree is pretty reasonable for a nice place. I'm assuming they are even less as an app was mentioned.

Hell you can drop $90 at Kanji before you even start in on the main course, and that's just for one person!

$90 for four people is a borderline bargain.

There's a lot of money in this forum. I get that and can appreciate that. I guess I was just thinking/hoping Poche's was going to come in at a more accessible price point than $22/person. If for no other reason than for the fact it's located in the middle of multiple student housing areas. I guess they're going for a different demographic, which is fine. I'm sure we'll go a time or two, but probably not very often. Wish we could though, I'm sure it'll be delicious!

Have you seen what students are paying for rent in that area and seen what kind of vehicles some of them drive?

Their food costs are being bankrolled by their parents. They don't blink at $22/person.

PopShelf is open in Bryan.

Guessing Poche's is aiming beyond the resident student market. Kanji (and I'm a fan) gets a lot of business courtesy of the airport, the Stella, etc. and being a very rare restaurant close to a growing part of TAMU.

Maybe (big maybe) Poche's is trying to follow that formula. We'll see how it shakes loose.

Depends on the city. 2818 in Bryan = yes, bypass.
2818 in CS = parking lot, no

The $90 bill was for a $7 app, two po-boys at $17 each. Etouffee was $23 and the shrimp Creole was $23. That's $87 with tax pushing you up to the $90. It was good seafood and yes, I've had Tad's po-boy. It is the same price range as theirs. I don't see how you can go out to eat these days and not spend nearly $100 for a family of 4. Even fast food is expensive these days.

That being said, we'll wait until they get their menu finalized and get the hiccups worked out, and will definitely be back.
