Jonathan's The Rub

9061 Gaylord St. Houston, TX 77024 | Outer Loop - NW | 713-465-8200

Location Description:

Jonathan Levine is a down-to-earth guy, a good cook and a gregarious host. He buys the very best seafood and high-quality beef and cooks it simply. His prices aren't cheap, but the tiny restaurant is always packed. Sure, the food is great, but it's the show that people come for. There just aren't many restaurant owners sweating on the line while cracking wise with the patrons anymore.
