In some ways, no restaurant better illustrates the concept of a neighborhood restaurant than Paulie's. This casual, counter-service concept on Westheimer serves straightforward, Italian-American food, but consistent execution and close attention to small details are just two of the many reasons Paulie's has become a favorite spot for so many people in Houston's restaurant industry. Instead of buying dried pasta, Paulie's makes its own. Carefully trained baristas serve locally roasted Greenway Coffee from a high-dollar espresso machine while providing friendly, efficient service. Of course, no meal would be complete without one of Paulie’s signature iced shortbread cookies.
