No fine art needed here; the backdrop at this gently rotating restaurant 34 stories above ground is downtown’s classic skyline. We suggest pairing it with another classic: the seafood pot filled with Gulf shrimp, sausage, crab claws, mussels and lobster.
The airy, elegant dining room may recall Charleston, but the enchilada-and-oyster-filled menu is puro Gulf Coast. The décor and entrées aren’t all we’re smitten with, either.
Houston’s first food hall takes the lushness of the Bayou City underground, with verdant plant walls bordering bustling ramen, barbecue and crepe kiosks that draw boisterous pre- and post-party crowds on weekend nights.
