The Blind Goat
The Blind Goat is a downtown Vietnamese spot, that recently opened at 409 Travis St., Suite 367.
It is one of five restaurants located inside the Bravery Chef's Hall. Owner Christine Ha, winner of season three of MasterChef, has created a menu that includes shareables like crispy shrimp, bowls like G.O.A.T. Curry (coconut, lemongrass, cilantro, pickled mustard greens and jasmine rice) and desserts like the Vietnamese Affogato with Oreo crumbles, ice cream, condensed milk, toasted coconut and chicory coffee. (Check out the full menu here.)
Head over to 7620 Katy Freeway, Suite 305, in Spring Branch East and you'll find Warehouse 72, a new Italian, Mediterranean and New American spot.
Warehouse 72 occupies the same space as the former Spaghetti Warehouse, which was destroyed during Hurricane Harvey. The new spot offers a more upscale dining experience, with a menu featuring seafood, salad, pizza, pasta, steak, pork and chicken. Look for the fried mozzarella appetizer and Australian lamb chops with oak wood-smoked carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach and hazelnut pesto. (Here's the entire menu.)
Stop by 1737 W. 34th St., Suite 100, in Central Northwest and you'll find Local Poke, a Hawaiian spot, offering poke and more.
This local chain has two other Houston locations. Diners can order a signature bowl or create their own, which involves seven steps: pick a bowl size, a base, proteins, sides, mix-ins, a sauce and finally toppings. (Take a look at the full of the menu here.)
A new addition to Greater Uptown , Memorial Tacos is a spot to score tacos and more that's located at 7951 Katy Freeway, Suite T.
This fast-casual eatery serves up nachos, quesadillas and, of course, tacos. The spot offers breakfast tacos, street tacos and specialty tacos at different price points. Try the pulled pork tacos with red cabbage slaw & pickled jalapeños, and shrimp tacos with onions, cilantro and avocado, along with a side of charro beans and a frozen margarita.
