Restaurants in Houston

This venue has closed.

Corny to say, but eating at Mark's can be a religious experience, and although it occupies an early 1920's brick church complete with sanctuary, side chapel, choir, and pulpit, it has little to do with the architecture or former tenant.

Located in Houston’s Rice Village, Benjy’s offers modern American dining experience. Inside the dining room, exposed light bulbs dangle from the high ceiling, and white leather chairs curve around glass-topped tables.

This venue is now closed.

First established in Guatemala in 1971, this family-owned eatery is now an international franchise offering authentic, affordable Latin fare.

Located in midtown Houston along the light rail line, Julia’s Bistro offers modern Latin cuisine served amid fresh flowers and vibrant color block walls. The restaurant is also dimly lit and features classic white tablecloths on widely spaced tables, making it a popular choice for date night.

Just a few blocks east of Montrose, Indika blends traditional Indian ingredients with fresh, local ingredients to create a progressive take on Indian cuisine.

Eating at the old-style family diner in Houston feels like an Edward Hopper dream with a Deep South spirit on the side. The same soulful bunch of ladies in the back kitchen have been at the Inn for ages, and five days a week they fry yardbirds to order.


Though located some 40 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, by 1920 Houston was a booming port, known as the city where 17 railroads meet the sea—hence the name of this restaurant, situated just off the lobby of the Alden Hotel.

One of the most nourishing and idiosyncratic spots to open in town since, well, ever, is Feast, set in a rambling Arts and Crafts house in Montrose.

Ideal for pre-show dining, Artista offers contemporary American cuisine inside the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
