My Favorite Places in Houston
What to see and do... and where to eat in Houston.
In the Montrose, Vibrant is a cool, subtle and sexy spot for vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike. A great spot to enjoy a tonic, coffee, organic champagne or a cocktail. The patio is lovely with a dusty California vibe. The plated presentation is delicate and lovely while the flavors are over-the-top delicious.

One of the greatest original cool spots in Houston on Westheimer Blvd. --Houston's most popular street. Most nights you can check out a jazz trio or quirky film on the patio. Their sweet potato and black bean tamales are excellent as is the Crispy Kale salad with popped rice. Go for coffee, desserts, beer and Prosecco on tap.

Located on Westheimer Blvd. near all the thrift shops, cafés and a handful of good restaurants. Best candles and hand soap in all the city, unless you go next door to Aesops to get your hand soap fix.

Houston is fortunate to have one of this unique artist's work on display at Rice University. “My work is more about your seeing than it is about my seeing, although it is a product of my seeing. I’m also interested in the sense of presence of space; that is space where you feel a presence, almost an entity — that physical feeling and power that space can give.” James Turrell http://jamesturrell.com/work/type/

Sightseeing
Set in the middle of the Montrose neighborhood, this 30-acre museum campus in the main bldg houses special exhibitions and the permanent collection with four other museum buildings: two are dedicated to single artists (Cy Twombly and Dan Flavin), the Byzantine Fresco Chapel, and the Menil Drawing Institute. ‘Known for displays that allow the objects and works of art to speak for themselves—there are no “didactics” on the wall or media in the galleries—the Menil philosophy is to foster each individual’s direct, personal encounter with works of art. The display of carefully chosen artworks in sympathetic settings are Menil hallmarks.’
