This new coastal Mexican cantina from the folks behind Liberty Station and Cottonwood replaced iconic gay bar E.J.'s just off Westheimer. The interior features lamps found by owners Sara and Rob Cromie during their trips to Mexico and lots of custom ironwork, but it's the large, interior courtyard that's made La Grange one of 2015's hottest destinations. It's a two-story affair that encourages lingering over a craft beer or an agave-based cocktail. On the cocktail side, don't miss the watermelon fresca and a frozen margarita with plenty of bite. Both the grilled shrimp and queso (add guacamole) are perfect for sharing.
