Artista

A restaurant with a view

Artista mirrors the elegant beauty of Grace Kelly. Housed in the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, this stunning, elegant fashion plate from Latin innovator Michael Cordua is a statuesque beauty sleekly swathed with blond drapes. Artista’s alluring beauty is heightened by one of the best views of Downtown Houston. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame a sweeping skyline that heightens the drama of the bi-level dining room.

While Cordua is most famous for his Latin innovations, Artista is his modern Latin interpretation with global allusions. Along with Peruvian lobster and shrimp bisque, the Nicaraguan restaurateur ladles miso soup with avocado and wonton crisp. His famous crispy crawfish taquitos and Peruvian-style cebiche continue to anchor the menu, along with churrasco steaks and maple-brined pork chops with green apple potato hash and orange chipotle sauce.

Table 8 is the best spot to see city lights. It can accommodate up to, you guessed it, eight people.
