Saturday lunch in Houston

RBPoBoy Aug 19, 2008 02:49 PM

My wife and I will be in Houston this Saturday and we'll be free for lunch. We've never been there, so we'd appreciate some advice. I've looked at the websites of the recommended Houston restaurants on this board and most of them aren't open for lunch on Saturdays. (But man, they look great!)

Any suggestions? We enjoy all types of cuisine and money is not a consideration - fine dining to a great neighborhood joint.

Thanks in advance!

    What part of town will you be visiting?

      Which restaurants have you looked at that aren't open on Sat. for lunch? Seems odd to me, because Sat. lunch is pretty popular. Also if we knew what you were interested in we could be more helpful.

        Best atmosphere and delicious food is at Tiny Boxwoods at Thomsen and Hanson on West Alabama. Closes at 2PM so get there early. Beautiful airy architecture and design and the food is expertly prepared. The food is simple but creative - I had a pesto and smoked gouda grilled sandwich on homeade bread with a roasted tomato dipping sauce. And the chocolate chip cookies are prepared everyday from a recipe that I would die for. It's a Houston Gem.

          There's Hugo's or Dolce Vita (according to their web site they are open on Saturday's at noon but I'd call first to make sure) Both have web sites and you can check out their menu.

          Really it depends on what you're looking for. I don't usually do high end lunches...just my preference though.

            restaurants in houston aren't usually closed on saturdays. what restaurants are you talking about? and which menus have you liked?

            come on, at least show us you've done a little research on your own. there's tons of posts already on this board on where the best places to eat are. these vague questions are so hard to answer.
