Food energizes, replenishes, and revitalizes the mind, body, and soul.
604 Fairview St
Houston, TX 77006
Description: With three and a half Barnaby's inside a two mile radius, there's always one nearby for those living in the Montrose/River Oaks section of town. Named for owner Jeff Gale's childhood sheepdog, Barnaby's has many accents that pay homage to his beloved pet. Bone shaped dog treats decorate the walls and there's even a painting of his pooch on the ceiling at the original Fairview location. The food here is fantastic and wonderfully diverse. From hamburgers topped with blue cheese and bacon, to tostadas or meatloaf, it's got something for every kind of craving.
2424 Dunstan Road
Houston, TX 77005
Description: Benjy's dinner menu features small plates such as Pacific Rim vegetable moo shu with ginger-jasmin rice and peanut slaw; medium plates such as Asian beef pizza with spicy pineapple, spinach; and large plates such as sesame-crusted ahi tuna with mixed vegetable stir-fry, ginger sticky rice and three-pepper soy vinaigrette. The lunch and brunch menus also feature innovative, lively concoctions of salads, sandwiches and pastas. The austere but sophisticated surroundings blend retro-hip sleekness with New York sensibility.
Daily Review Café
3412 W. Lamar St.
Houston, TX 77019
Description: You'll want to make reservations at The Daily Review Cafe because of its extreme popularity with the River Oaks/Montrose crowd who enjoy the atmosphere of the stylish restaurant almost as much as the comfort food and excellent wines on the menu. The cafe is home to art exhibitions by local talent and an ambrosial herb garden that supplies the seasonings on many of the invigorating salads and homestyle entrees.
3701 Travis St
Houston, TX 77002
Description: T'afia is so tiny (at 16 tables) and so sparse (with a bare concrete floor, brick walls and an exposed duct ceiling painted a creamy tan) that the food garners all the attention. This new concept in Houston dining -- a blackboard-ruled eatery where the emphasis is on taste, instead of mass production -- is brought to us by Monica Pope, who first pleased our palates with the Quilted Toque and then went on to create classy eats at the Boulevard Bistro.
2521 Bagby St
Houston, TX 77006
Description: Transylvanian Chef Johann Schuster began his training at the Culinary Institute of Hermanstadt at the age of 14. After serving as chef in some of Europe's finest restaurants, Schuster traveled to Germany, where he met his wife Maria, and together they opened an award-winning restaurant in the Black Forest. Ten years later, the couple targeted Houston's enthusiastic dining culture for a new restaurant that would serve a variety of the fine European cuisines they had mastered, including dishes from Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Hungary and Switzerland. Thus, Charivari, French for "beautiful good mix."
3910 Kirby Dr
Houston, TX 77098
Description: This longtime favorite Japanese spot served sushi when sushi wasn't cool. Now, a new breed of trend-mongers flocks to the West Houston hideaway for some of the freshest fish in town, served in a retro-Asian atmosphere that is more comforting than its loud, contemporary versions. With nearly 40 choices of sushi and sashimi, as well as a wide assortment of rolls-from your basic California to the himachi maki with yellow tail and flying fish eggs -- fans will not likely be left wanting. Best of all, most of the sushi and sashimi are offered in ready-made combinations or you can create your own roll.
