I am not sure where Daniel got his start but I have followed his journey for well over twenty years. I was a regular at his location on Richmond and was disappointed when he sold it. It may have been five years later when I was fortunate enough to see a delivery car with his sign on it. I literally followed it to his new location on Bissonnet. It was worth the effort. This gentleman and veteran has continued his fine tradition at a comfortable location. His humour is reflected in the names of some of his entrees like Hermann Park duck and road kill selections but my favorite remains his stuffed chicken with mushroom sauce.. I may only visit every year or two since I live in Galveston but I always make it a special occasion and try to take someone special.
Even though it may be years he still greets me by my first name.
