You'll find authentic regional Mexican cuisine in a stunningly earthy, Latin-inspired setting at Hugo's.

Chef Hugo Ortega features refined Mexico City classics with a contemporary twist. Moist whole red snapper Veracruzana arrives blanketed in tangy tomatoes, olives and rings of sweet baked onions. Desserts are masterful, from the buttery almond-coconut tart to the flan de chocolate made with freshly ground cocoa beans.

The restaurant is housed in a 1925 structure designed and built by Houston architect Joseph Finger, who is also responsible for Houston’s Art Deco-style City Hall. The Latin-inspired building has been lovingly restored to feature its original beauty, and the interiors designed to include both chic contemporary touches and inviting traditional elements of old Mexico.

Hugo's popular Sunday brunch is served from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
