UPDATED: The burglary was caught on tape. Anyone know this guy?
It’s take more than some “neighborhood punks” to take down plucky Plonk.
“The only thing they made off with was the recipe for our Guanciale Burger,” owner Scott Miller said by phone Tuesday afternoon. (The burger named for its special bacon was tagged Houston's best by Houston Press in 2011.)
The quip was in response to questions about a break-in the wee hours of Tuesday that left the Oak Forest restaurant, the only wine bar to make critic Alison Cook’s Top 100 Restaurants, with a mess.
Chef Erin Smith shared the news on Twitter earlier just after noon today.
“It’s a horrible way to wake up in the morning,” said Miller, who declined further comment on the burglary, citing the ongoing investigation.
He did add that the restaurant would be open its regular hours starting at 4 p.m. today.
Plucky Plonk. We expected no less.
