Montrose Boulevard ranked among ‘World’s Most Delicious Streets’ with the best restaurants

Published

on



The Montrose area has long been known as one of Houston’s most unique neighborhoods. The community offers a hub of eclectic businesses and restaurants that cater to its diverse population and has long been credited with serving as a political center for the LGBTQ community. It was even recently dubbed one of the “coolest” neighborhoods in the United States. 

The main thoroughfare of the neighborhood is Montrose Boulevard, where a seemingly never-ending supply of bustling restaurants, thrift shops and art galleries dot the landscape. Considering its wide reach across cultures and cuisine, it’s probably not hard to understand why a Nov. 2019 ranking from FodorsTravel placed the iconic street as No. 6 on its list of the “World’s Most Delicious Streets.”

The ranking cites Montrose’s offbeat award-winning restaurants and bars that offer a look into different world cultures all within walking distance of the neighborhood as the main reason for its No. 6 spot. Montrose mainstays such as Khun Kay Thai Cafe, Pronto Cucinino and Les Noo’dle were featured on the ranking.


The nine other streets featured on the list range from as far away as Puerto Rico, London and Saigon. Only three other U.S. cities cracked the list, including Chicago, San Francisco and New York.

Texas City female officer indicted in case of ‘excessive force’ on woman in custody

Published

A female Texas City police officer has been indicted by a Galveston County grand jury of official oppression after investigators said the cop may have violated an excessive force policy while transporting a woman to jail, according to the Texas City chief of police.

Shelby Wright, a four-year veteran of the Texas City Police Department, was indicted on Monday and given a $2,500 bond after investigators said a woman, who was in handcuffs, “received an injury to her nose” while being transported to the holding area of Texas City Jail in April by Wright in her police unit. The woman was then taken to a hospital to be treated, officials said.

It’s unclear how the injury occurred, and police declined further comment.  But a grand jury in a Dec. 3 indictment said Wright pushed the woman “causing bodily injury” to her.


A statement by Texas City Police Chief Joe Stanton said the woman’s injury was reported to the duty captain, who then reviewed the jail video and the body camera video of the arrest. The police captain then notified Stanton, who initiated an internal affairs investigation in April following the incident.

Wright was reassigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of the investigation. On April 8, the videos and the reports were taken to the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office, where it was then presented to a grand jury, Stanton said in his statement.

According to the statement, the Texas City Police Department has “strict policies prohibiting its police officers from using excessive force against anyone with whom they come into contact.”

“Every incident of this kind in which force is used is taken seriously and subject to review by the department,” Stanton said. “Our officers are subject to discipline up to and including possible termination for violating such policies.”

Official oppression occurs when a public servant abuses their official capacity, according to Texas law. It is punishable by up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
