Five D Steakhouse has been in business in Avinger for many years. Denise is the manager and agrees to a photo of her checking on a customer's table.
This Spring when we arrive in town, we are delighted to see there is a new restaurant in town, bringing in more business to the community. I walk across the street to say Hello and the owner, Sterling, and he tells me they are not open yet. It will be a few more days until all their kitchen equipment arrives.
A couple of days later David, former mayor of Avinger and Texas State Senator, invites us to a Tasting on the day before the Grand Opening. We give thumbs up to the seafood platter we are served. And Sterling's signature bread pudding is wonderful.
I am particularly impressed with the decor, and learn that Sam, Sterling's brother, was a professional singer at one time.
On the evening of the formal opening of the restaurant, we are happy to visit again. We enjoy conversation with folks at the table next to us.
Sam tells me that before he retired, he sang professionally at many places along the Gulf Coast, hence the nautical decor, and poster of Emmylou Harris.
I am amazed at the wonderful voice I hear when Sam sings, and the food is fabulous also! We will visit again.
