HOU - Need Chow b/w TMC and Hobby
Phoenix Chowhound has meetings tomorrow at the Medical Center, then flying out of Hobby that evening.
So I'd like to hear from y'all on Chow-worthy joints between the hospital and the airport. No particular cuisine, style or budget . . . quick is good, but I'll have time to sit down, too. Definitely local, definitely good food and would prefer a cold beer or good glass of wine.
What are your top picks?
The route between the Med Center and Hobby is pretty much a wasteland, food and otherwise, so you are probably best off heading to the Rice Village area which is just a few minutes in the other direction.
Some spots to consider are benjy's (http://www.benjys.com/) for hipster comfort food (i.e., New American), any of the Goode Company (http://www.goodecompany.com/) restaurants (barbecue, Tex-Mex or seafood), Cova (http://www.covawines.com/) for wine bar and food and El Meson (http://www.elmeson.com/) for Cuban/Mexican food.
