Discover Downtown

Downtown Houston's dining scene has something to offer any visitor no matter what type of cuisine they are searching for. The city boasts some of the finest barbecue joints in the state of Texas. The tantalizing scent of slow-cooked beef brisket will draw your attention to some of the best local spots. There are various types of eateries offering everything from the latest in African food to homestyle Italian dishes. The local restaurants are open early and late, so you'll have the opportunity for a quick bite before you start your day or after a long night out. You can also enjoy a relaxing lunch at a local French cafe or dinner options that range from fine dining at wine bars to casual menus that are perfect for starting off an evening.
