Houston Food Finder: The Hit List – New Houston Restaurants to Visit in November 2019
The holiday season is here and with it new places to wine and dine for Houstonians. Whether you are in the mood for a plethora of choices at a new food hall in Rice Village or sampling dim sum in midtown here’s our list of what’s worth hitting at least once this month.
Annie Cafe & Bar, 1800 Post Oak: James Beard-award winning chef Robert Del Grande has teamed with Benjamin Berg of Berg Hospitality Group (B.B. Butcher, B.B. Lemon and B.B. Italia) and Sam Governale of Emmaline to retool the former RDG + Bar Annie into The Annie Café & Bar. Offering Houstonians what Berg refers to as a brighter and more comfortable space, the redesigned restaurant features new private dining areas, a larger bar and an updated patio.
The menu includes new starters such as Rabbit Pot Pie and Ahi tuna crudo with queso fresco, avocado and grapefruit, and entrées that include Lumache Pasta with broccoli rabe, tomato fennel and shrimp sausage as well as Scottish salmon with black lentil stew and Fresno chile romesco. For those who want to share, the Dinner Bell Chicken, served with sweet potato, cornbread dressing and green bean salad, is one of three dinner-for-two options. Burger lovers will want to check out the 30 Count Burger early, as the name means that only 30 of these wagyu burgers are made each night for dinner. But don’t fret: there are three other burgers at lunch. On the cocktail menu, the Almost Famous with El Silencio mezcal, yellow Chartreuse, Aperol, and lime and the Post Oak Boulevardier with Bulleit bourbon, hibiscus infused Campari and Cocchi Torino vermouth are definitely worth a sip.
