Food & Dining in Houston


The diverse industrial focus of Houston has inspired people from numerous countries to settle here. With so many cultures represented, it is no great surprise that the city's dining opportunities reflect their influences. If you are homesick, there is a good chance you will be able to find a restaurant that specialises in your native cuisine. If you are simply adventurous and like to sample the flavours of the world, you will have a lot of chances to do so while visiting. In fact, you would have to live here a very long time to exhaust the possibilities.

Places to Dine


Beyond the realm of traditional Texan, the possibilities are equally impressive. The close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico has inspired a love of seafood, which has, in turn, inspired the birth of a large number of seafood restaurants across the city. The downtown area boasts the expertise of Massa's Seafood Grill. A variety of Asian food types are popular in Houston. If you like Japanese sushi in an upscale atmosphere, try the Sake Lounge. In addition to the tasty Tex-Mex offerings, the city also boasts a number of restaurants that specialise in traditional Mexican fare. Irma's Restaurant has been a famous Houston mainstay for years. Irma herself will come out of the kitchen and treat you like one of the family at her homey establishment.


Steaks are considered to be a strong runner-up as a Texas tradition, and some of the finest steakhouses in the state are located in Houston. Morton's The Steakhouse is yet another former President Bush-approved restaurant. It is classy and elegant, as is Capital Grille. The Galleria area also lays claim to McCormick & Schmick's. Copeland's of New Orleans is an example of a New Orleans' original that has made a mark on the spicy side of the Houston dining scene.

Not to be outdone by the Big Apple, Houston also has its share of restaurants that specialise in contemporary, cutting-edge cuisine. Anthony's Restaurant is owned and operated by heralded restaurateur Tony Vallone. The elegance and sophistication of the décor and European/American menu are hard to beat. Rudi Lechner's Restaurant pays tribute to German and Austrian cuisine.

Pizzerias are essentially Italian, of course, but the concept has been Americanised to a large extent. Fun-loving diners are drawn to the boisterous atmosphere of New York Pizzeria, while out-of-the-ordinary options, like barbecue pizza, attract a full house at California Pizza Kitchen.
