Chef Justin Yu joined forces with his pastry chef wife, Karen Man, to create a restaurant that's wholly Houston except for one notable aspect. Instead of sprawl, the tiny Oxheart seats only 30 people, and reservations at the downtown restaurant fill up fast. Yu and Man highlight locally grown produce and locally raised meats on their veggie-heavy menus, which change from week to week. Two different chef's tasting menus are available each night, both of them six courses, and one of them always featuring just vegetables.
