Tasting Room -- Uptown

1101 Uptown Park Blvd. Houston, TX 77056 | Galleria | 713-993-9800

Location Description:

This is not your typical bar food: French fries are coated with divinely pungent white truffle oil, and artisanal charcuterie and cheese plates aim to complement your choice of wine. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Tasting Room offers brunch selections with a distinctly Southern twist, and the occasional crawfish boils thrown on the patio in the summer are hugely popular. And while you normally wouldn't consider a weekday lunch at a wine bar, the menu of gourmet sandwiches so alluring that you'll even forget they serve wine at the Uptown outpost of the Tasting Room.
