La Fisheria

4705 Inker St. Houston, TX 77007 | Heights | 713-802-1712

Location Description:

La Fisheria is not Tex-Mex, nor is it like any other Mexican you've had in Houston: Chef Aquiles Chavez makes modern, upscale Mexican food that's heavy on the coastal influences of his home state of Tabasco, in a Heights setting that's vacation-like and relaxing. Try his clean, bright ceviches and red snapper tostadas for something light, or tuck into a bowl of duck-chorizo stew with mussels and a glass of bold Mexican red wine for dinner.
