You'd think that a bar and grill located across the street from Minute Maid Park would serve up only bar food. While the wings and burgers are the Home Plate's most requested fares, they're not stand-outs here. Instead, try the mouthwatering chicken pesto pasta, which arrives swimming in a cream sauce, along with warm bread sticks. The warm spinach salad - "flash sautéed" baby spinach, red peppers and roasted onions, topped with blue cheese crumbles - is a hands-down winner.
