Creating a top ten list for the Heights is an intimidating process. At a basic level, it's difficult to even define the Heights. And with so many great restaurants to choose from, we've had to leave out popular spots Teotihuacan, Vietnam Restaurant, and Onion Creek for - well -- better places. Below are our ten favorite spots in the 'hood. And while we chose strictly based on how much we enjoy the food, the list reflects a nice range of cuisines and price levels. Enjoy!
Textile has the promise to be on a Top 10 list for all of Houston, but hasn't yet reached its potential. Savory dishes are often overshadowed by the exceptional desserts set forth by pastry chef (and James Beard nominee) Plinio Sandalio. But owner Scott Tycer recently brought in rising star Ryan Hildebrand to shake things up as the restaurant's new chef. We're excited to see what fireworks the move brings.
