Had lunch at Isabel, in the Pearl.  Chef Isabel Cruz serving a “blend of Puerto Rican, Cuban, Mexican, Japanese, and Thai cooking.”  Okay.  All I know is lunch was delicious, and I am coming back!  Enjoyed a dish called Double Happiness.  Crisp brown rice and seasonal vegetables with marinated beef and chicken and a side of peanut sauce.  Of course had to get a side of chili paste, too.  It was really good.  The room’s side walls (glass doors) were opened, allowing fresh air and a breeze to enter the dining room.  One of my lunch mates said he had been to Isabel several times for breakfast and that it is a must.  He stressed that they make a very tasty Bloody Mary.  I will have to have one!
