Housed in a charming '30s-era house, Backstreet Cafe lies just off of South Shepherd in River Oaks. Cozy up in one of three intimate dining rooms as you nosh on jazzed-up Southern and Italian classics from renowned chef Hugo Ortega. Standouts include the seafood-stuffed Gulf Coast beignets, pecan-crusted chicken, and eggs Benedict over cheddar-chive biscuits. The restaurant also has a brilliantly curated wine list from sommelier Sean Beck. When the weather is nice, be sure to sit under the tall trees out on Backstreet's stunning New Orleans-esque patio, it's easily one of the best in town.
