This week I visit Market Pub House in the Delmar Loop. This is the second attempt by John Racanelli to reinvent the old Market in the Loop building as a stand-alone restaurant, following the short-lived Racanelli's Cucina. After the jump, a sneak preview of my review.

Also, please note the offering of pineapples someone left at the foot (or, er, feet) of the statue in the foreground.

The Market Pub House's website describes the restaurant as featuring "multinational fresh food offerings in a pub-like atmosphere." To be fair, this isn't entirely disingenuous. The menu includes both potstickers and tacos. The potstickers (gyoza on the menu) are a two-bite snack, lightly seasoned ground pork wrapped in thin dough. Unlike the potstickers at many Chinese or Japanese restaurants, which are pan-fried on one side and then steamed until finished, these are seared so that each side has a crisp texture.

The tacos are more Tex-Mex than Mex-Mex.
Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to read my entire review.
