Houston, TX 77019
Less than a year after Montrose’s Latina Café closed, a new neighborhood bistro, Roost, opened in its place. Owned by Haven alum, Kevin Naderi, the farm-to-table restaurant tempts date night duos and business clients with sharable small plates offered in a home-style setting.
Inside, rustic shutters, chalkboards and bookcases accent the cozy space, along with fresh flowers, candles and buttercup-colored tablecloths. Tempting smells drift from the open kitchen, highlighting dishes on Naderi’s internationally influenced (and always changing) menu. Expect a mix of fish and meat dishes (the diver scallops and flat iron steak are both standouts), but don’t miss the roasted cauliflower and signature donut hole dessert.
