Edgar’s Hermano Restaurant
1700 Smith Street
Houston, TX 77002
Edgar Hermano’s mixes authentic Tex-Mex cuisine with Southern culinary classics. Dive in to menu items like Texas corn cakes with pork chicharrón and cotija cheese, mac and queso with chipotle grilled Gulf shrimp, and the award-winning Southern fried stuffed chicken with masa grits and candied bacon jam. Edgar’s offers breakfast, lunch, lunch express, and dinner options every day. Chef Sylvia Couvarrubias focuses the menu on local fare as well as south-of-the-border specialties.
The restaurant location sits within the beautifully renovated Whitehall hotel and features an extensive cocktail menu with local favorites like watermelon and picante margaritas, micheladas, and Sotherly’s own Edgar’s Truth bourbon, named in honor of Edgar Sims, founder of the predecessor to Sotherly Hotels and a bourbon fan himself. The hip wood-paneled décor is reminiscent of a west-Texas taqueria.
Valet parking is available at The Whitehall’s main entrance, with street parking open to all patrons.
