Loving the bread
Heights got a little cooler with the addition of Kraftsmen's new bakery on 22nd and Lamar. Chef Scott Tycer and his wife Annika have made the Kraftsmen in Montrose (outside dining area) and this new location two of the best places to eat with your kids in Houston. The place is airy and open, sort of like a hip place you'd find in Brooklyn, NY. This is a great place to bring the kids as they have a small area dedicated to the little ones. But better than that are their selection of baked goods that appeal to all ages. One tip: try the monkey bread. It's darn good. And if you have to share it with your kids, it breaks off easily into bite-sized pieces and doesn't get crumbs everywhere like muffins or croissants.
The last time I went to visit, two staff members were on the dock next to the bakery refurbishing old chairs. Like I said, it reminds me of the cool places in Brooklyn, NY.
