Foursquare Tips

  • The sauce on the shiitake mushroom dumplings is made with Bosque Blue (found at the Houston Dairymaids) & honey. The honey cuts the normally strong blue cheese, making it rich and inviting. Try it!
  • Get the dumplings. They r amazing. Crispy flattened chicken is a very large portion enough to share. Loved the brussell sprouts.
  • Bar and happy hour specials are worth a look. One of Houston's best burgers. Like the old shrimp and grits better, but Monica Pope is awesome!!
  • The service here is amazing, the food is exquisite and the setting is very relaxed. This is one of my top 5 restaurants in Houston. Beef Tenderloin, Brussels, Pasta Carbonara, wilted greens - great
  • Brunch: Sunday 10am-3pm.
  • #4 on the $10 drink menu. Shiitake mushroom dumplings & Brussel sprouts.
  • Amazing service, great staff! Salmon sashimi is awesome!
  • Top chef contestant Monica pope. Great comfy look and feel. Very good cocktails. Farm to table menu.
  • Great happy hour - half off the bar menu & cocktails.
  • Vegan Options: Chickpea Fries, Fried Brussels, Avocado Sashimi, Mediterranean Dip Duo, Dal, Curry. Excellent waitstaff. A bit fancy. A bit pricey. Great place to bring a date.
  • Don't waste your time here. Mediocre, overpriced, and flavorless :(
  • Everything is local and fresh. Can't go wrong with anything. Especially the cocktails and brussel sprouts.
  • Don't miss: The menu revolves, but keep an eye out for kale Caesar salad; plate of three seasonal vegetables; soup du jour; rillettes of the day; and the house burger.
  • Inside track: Try to snag one of the scarlet wing chairs.
  • Tandoori Chicken Salad
  • Book the outside patio table for group events. Beautiful!
  • Don't miss: The menu revolves, but keep an eye out for kale Caesar salad; plate of three seasonal vegetables; soup du jour; rillettes of the day; and the house burger.
  • The free drink is only one per table. Be careful with that. Staff is rude about it.
  • Get the chick fries and the Mac & cheese. Both were so amazing!
  • Brussels sprouts...prob the best I've ever had!!!
