Description

One of the main attractions at Backstreet Café on Shepherd near West Gray— helmed by chef Ortega of Hugo’s, along with his wife, Tracy Vaught—is the patio seating in the big backyard of the restored River Oaks manse that houses the restaurant. The other is Backstreet’s pioneering seasonal American menu—which also includes thoughtful vegetarian and gluten-free dishes—as well as smart beer-and-wine list that, like the food, features a little something for everyone.
