Weekend In Houston


If you haven’t paid a visit to downtown Houston recently, you will be amazed by the explosion of public art, acclaimed restaurants, and blossoming green spaces that have transformed the city into a bona fide urban oasis. The long-awaited movement to beautify downtown Houston has turned the Central Houston Business District into more of a Central Business Fun District.

Perhaps most noteworthy is the city’s new Restaurant Row, which includes a whopping 13 new restaurants and bars in an 8-block stretch around Discovery Green. See for yourself what a $175 million makeover of the George R. Brown Convention Center and the surrounding area can do to transform a city’s urban core into a cosmopolitan lifestyle like never before. Just some of the new restaurant options include James Beard Award nominated Chef Hugo Ortega’s interior Mexican restaurant Xochi; Master Chef of France Philippe Verpiand’s authentic Parisian restaurant & bar Brasserie du Parc; Italian concepts Grotto Downtown, Potente, and Osso & Kristalla, and Kulture – a new lunch / dinner / brunch concept from the owners of The Breakfast Klub.

The newcomers join established restaurants The Grove at Discovery Green, the nationally acclaimed Vietnamese restaurant Huynh’s, MKT Bar / Phoenicia Specialty Foods (the first grocery store to be built in downtown Houston in over 40 years right across the street from the Four Seasons) and steakhouse favorites Pappa’s Bros. Steakhouse and Vic & Anthony’s. The new Restaurant Row only adds to the luster of the area’s other major attractions – the convention center, Toyota Center, Minute Maid Park, BBVA Compass Stadium, House of Blues, Warehouse Live, 8th Wonder Brewery and Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge, to name a few.
