Gravitas - Closed

807 Taft Houston, TX 77019 | River Oaks | 713-522-0995

Location Description:

An open kitchen and a hip, warehouse feel with bare bricks and concrete floors keep this place hopping at all times with the chic set. There's an American bistro atmosphere complete with menu and extensive wine list written on chalkboard. One of the best ways to experience the food is with his three-course lunch for $19 with a glass of wine for $3 more. The venison chili topped with Gruyere is heavenly, and the crispy pork belly will leave you wanting more. The kitchen is equally at home with seafood, be it mussels, tuna tartare or trout.
