Haven closed in August 2014.
When it comes to being green, Randy Evans doesn't just pay lip service. He built one of the first LEED-certified restaurants in Houston, then designed a rotating menu around local, fresh ingredients. But this isn't a hippie, raw-food hangout. The menu is focused on clean, classic American flavors with modern interpretations, from appetizers like the shrimp corn dog with a Tabasco mash remoulade and the seared Berkshire pork belly to the leek soup and entrees of free-range chicken, wood-grilled chateau loin and grilled long-fin white tuna, Evans does his thing and lets the ingredients shine. The dining room is modern (think lots of bamboo) but not overly stark, and the service earns rave reviews. Haven could be one of the new Houston standards.
