You could say Downtown Houston is in the middle of a renaissance. With luxury hotels, thoughtfully-designed green space's, a vast array of public art, and dining options for all budgets, downtown is no longer just a hub for corporate HQ's and cookie-cutter accommodations.
Can't forget: The Houston Astros and Houston Rockets both call downtown home, and many of the city's public festivities take place along Allen Parkway, walking distance from City Hall.
Coined one of the most diverse cities in America, it’s no surprise that Downtown Houston’s restaurant landscape mimics the makeup of its residents — a claim to fame that earned Houston the title of “The New Capital of Southern Cool” by GQ Magazine. From the perfect patio eateries to power lunch hotspots and nightlife staples, downtown’s multifarious dining offers a front row seat to Houston’s true essence. This is your recipe for a perfect day of eating downtown.
