Houston, Texas

Davis Street At Hermann Park has great service and that is one of its most redeeming characteristics. The menu has occasional bright spots, like a dense donut bread pudding with a buttery, silken bourbon sauce, and thick, perfectly cooked, double-­cut pork chops. However, there’s too much reliance on sweet elements in the savory dishes, like maple syrup and sweet chile and curry sauces, and not enough heat or spice to pull them back into balance. The disjointed menu concept pulls from many different international influences but too tentatively for dishes to be considered noteworthy reinventions. They’re often too cool or too hot. The space reflects the menu as it seesaws between a casual lounge — tabletop game system and all — and a high­-priced fine ­dining establishment.
