Wild Oats

Underbelly Hospitality brings native Texas to the Houston Farmers Market. Nick Fine (One Fifth, Georgia James) uses a custom-built live-fire grill to explore the Lone Star’s diversity. Local vegetables flash fried until crisp and tossed in Los Cavazos mole, R-C Ranch Wagyu done CFS-style with bacon poblano gravy, Bellaire Campechana swimming with crab, shrimp, and spiced tomatillo, and Crispy Pork Shank and späetzle pay homage to Central Texas’ German heritage. It’s Old Texas reimagined.

Nancy’s Hustle

Every city should have a few outposts that match its energy. Nancy’s Hustle is H- town’s. This bistro has only been open for a little over two years, but it’s already gained a loyal following. If you want to see the hype, expect to squeeze. Start with Spicy Beef & Butter Dumplings and Nancy Cakes (fluffed up johnnycakes with smoked trout roe and cultured butter), chow down on flaky Roasted Tilefish with melted tomatoes and sweet corn puree, and grab a glass of good wine at the bar while hopping between bites of crispy, gooey Cheeseburger on english muffin brioche, thick-cut Fries, and a housemade Pickle Party.

Le Jardinier

Alain Verzeroli, who worked for Jöel Robuchon for 20 years, is the culinary director and Michelin-starred chef at this French restaurant. Felipe Botero Sanchezas is the new Chef de Cuisine. On the MFA campus, guests can dine while overlooking the sculpture garden. Le Jardinier—French for “the gardener”—offers a well-balanced menu, so guests of all palates can find a nutritious dish. Buttery King Kampachi is topped with squash and white sesame, while grass-fed Tenderloin is served with ratte potatoes and gem lettuce.
