This is one of Houston's only certified green restaurants, and chef Bruce Molzan is featuring locally grown produce and meats, all of which are hormone- and antibiotic-free. The brightly painted exterior of the old house gives way to a more subdued interior. The food is consistently creative, from the organic "hempanada" to the aji agave glazed double pork chops to the Gulf shrimp pad thai to the unbelievable dessert called Charlotte's Web. White tablecloth service never waivers.
