The locals say this is one of the best cups of espresso in town and that's because this cafe is serious about coffee. The wide variety of beans and means of brewing they offer have one thing in common: quality. Not a fancy place, and not designed for those craving a corporate coffee drink, Catalina Coffee is an authentic coffee lover's dream.

This rustic Italian spot in the Heights remains a perennial favorite, thanks in large part to its 3,000 square foot in-house garden and freshly-made pasta dishes. If the wait is running long, grab a drink at the bar and enjoy the people-watching before dinner.

Texas flair and Cajun fare collide at this beloved Houston chain. Open 24/7, it’s always an excellent option for po’ boys, a steaming bowl of gumbo, or enough fried seafood to satisfy any Gulf cravings.

This bar from Houston hospitality titans Justin Yu and Bobby Heugel is just as well-known for its excellent pub fare as it is cocktails. The “party melt,” a decadent riff on a classic burger is a must, and groups can order the “cycle” (read: everything on the menu) for less than $100.

The Tex-Mex institution that started it all. Fajitas, enchiladas, and other Tejano classics join Oaxacan-style pork tamales for the perfect blend of Texan and Mexican cuisines. Of course, no meal here is complete without a Ninfarita, the restaurant’s notoriously potent signature margarita.

Pizaro’s is serious about Neapolitan pizza — so serious that it earned certification from the prestigious Vera Pizza Napoletana organization, which governs “authentic” pies from the region. Keep it classic with a margherita pie, or consider the Calabrese, topped with pepperoni, sopressata, fresh mozzarella, and Parmesan.

Eater Houston’s 2018 Restaurant of the Year, Nancy’s Hustle has quickly earned a reputation as one of the city’s best (and coziest) neighborhood restaurants. The pillowy “Nancy Cakes” served with butter and salmon roe are simple and delicious, and the hand-cut spaghetti with lobster and fermented chili butter cannot be missed.

50 years in, Brennan’s Creole and Cajun cuisine still shines thanks to iconic dishes like snapping turtle soup and Pontchartrain-style (read: crab, shrimp, and oyster-loaded) Gulf fish. Before digging into heartier fare, kick off dinner with a towering seafood platter that’s decadent without being outrageously priced.

Arguably Houston’s finest sushi institution, it’s pretty much impossible to go wrong at Kata Robata. Sashimi selections like madai topped with black truffle are always pristine, and allowing Chef “Hori” Horiuchi to guide an omakase dinner here is always a stunning journey into the world of raw fish.

Sabine-to-Bagby Promenade (Buffalo Bayou Walk) Sabine-to-Bagby Promenade brings out the scenic best in Houston. Take a stroll along its path, alternately called the Buffalo Bayou Walk, and you will reach the scenic waterfront park by the same name. Along the walk you will be dazzled by a myriad of attractions set off against the lush, verdant greens that abound here. Go canoeing in the bayou, explore the connecting bridge or go biking along one of its prolific trails, either way, you're sure to have a gala time here! One of Theater District's many jewels, this outdoor space is often a multi-dimensional event spot. Cultural, local and community events are held here by the dozen. It is also the starting point for many a boat cruise and rides among other events. Check the website (www.cityseekr.com) for more details on current and upcoming events.
