Cafe Piquet Editor’s Pick
Billing itself as “the Cuban restaurant where Cubans eat,” Café Piquet is popular among Houston’s expat community and it’s not hard to see why; eating here feels like eating in someone’s home (someone who’s hired an interior designer, but still). First-timers will want to take advantage of the appetizer and/or entrée samplers, which provide tastes of the restaurant’s most popular dishes, from croquetas de jamón and empanadas to ropa vieja and boliche, a sausage-stuffed roast in a dreamy onion gravy.
