Where to Eat
Niko Niko’s is a Greek institution in Houston and definitely deserves a lunch visit. Indika features fresh, creative Indian cuisine for brunch, lunch and dinner. Re-energize between shops or museums at coffee shops like Agora or Inversion, which both host food trucks outside.
James Beard Award winner Chris Shepherd at Underbelly serves soulful nose-to-tail cuisine
For those full days spent at the MFA, food trucks pull up outside the sculpture garden each day from 11am-3pm. For dinner, James Beard Award winner Chris Shepherd at Underbelly serves soulful nose-to-tail cuisine inspired by the plethora of ethnicities found in Houston. The Pass & Provisions is a restaurant with a dual personality: The Pass specializes in flawless haute cuisine, while Provisions serves up fun, shareable gastropub creations.
Underbelly, which opened in 2012, is Chris Shepherd’s first restaurant concept. The restaurant’s nose-to-tail cuisine earned Chris the James Beard award for best chef Southwest
The Pass & Provisions
Chefs Terrence Gallivan & Seth Siegel (formerly of Gordan Ramsay’s Maze) opened the dual-personality restaurant in 2013. The chefs share one kitchen and one roof in this unique concept that was touted as the best new restaurant by Bon Appétit.
