So Vino Bistro & Wine Bar Closed for Business

507 Westheimer Rd.
Houston, TX, 77006, United States
TEL: (713) 524-1000

This venue has closed.

Given its unlikely shopping-center-storefront location and the fact that it's known chiefly as a wine bar, So Vino is an unexpected find for dinner. The ambitious little kitchen turns out surprisingly good food, with generous cheese plates (the ever-changing selections like Humboldt Fog and Dutch Gouda come from Central Market, Houston's answer to Whole Foods), a perfectly dressed roasted beet and goat cheese salad, and a Texas wild game chili that, on wintry nights, pairs perfectly with a warming glass of Texas Hill Country red. The creaky wood floors, hushed, candlelit atmosphere, and alluring Hôtel Costes-style music playing in the background make this the ultimate spot for an alluring late-night dinner.

Insider Tip:

You won't be forced to hover over miniature bar tables here—all the seats in the house are perfectly comfortable—but the banquettes make the best spots for private conversations.
