This newcomer is technically part of the Hillstone/Houston’s restaurant chain, but who doesn’t love a Houston’s, right? Being that it’s more bar than restaurant, the menu leans heavily on elevated bar food: The coleslaw-topped burger and crispy chicken sandwich are both insane; the kale chicken salad, though undoubtedly lighter, is just as satisfying. Since reservations are not taken in advance, getting a table—whether outside or in the dimly-lit dining room—can take close to an hour, but the stellar drinks make the wait more than bearable.
