There aren’t many places in Houston where you can be whisked away to a European-inspired patisserie for espresso and crepes, have a mid-morning juice boost and then your pick of steak, seafood or sushi for lunch.
How about grabbing an afternoon sweet treat and then kicking off happy hour with imported craft beer or the perfect pinot, followed by culinary travels through Mexico, the Gulf Coast, Italy, Brazil and Asia?
Hungry yet? Wondering where you can find so many options in just one place? Grab your appetite and head to CITYCENTRE, a pedestrian-friendly destination set to feed every appetite and any mood from morning to night.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so say goodbye to a boring bowl of bran and hello to fresh fruits, omelets, waffles, pancakes and crepes.

Saturdays and Sundays, Brio Tuscan Grille also gets in on the brunch action with a Bellini Brunch until 3 p.m. Frittatas, crepes and berries and cream French toast are among the menu highlights.
Brunch at Cyclone Anaya’s is served until 3 p.m. Saturday and Sundays and the margaritas, $2 mimosas & poinsettias, Rock & Roll Bloody Mary and Cyclone's hibiscus sangria are enough to keep you parked on the patio all morning long. Throw in Tex-Mex for breakfast and you are set.
Coffee, tea or patisserie? All three are available at Flora & Muse, a charming bistro, flower shop and bakery. Grab a smoothie or linger over coffee and a full breakfast menu.
Want to start your day off right, but short on time? Pop by Jamba Juice for fresh, all natural ingredients poured into customized smoothies.

Whether looking for a quick spot for a working lunch or the opportunity to linger with friends, CITYCENTRE’s lunch options are abundant. Thanks to the thoughtful planning, you can often enjoy lunch outdoors on a beautiful patio or looking onto CITYCENTRE’s plaza.
Ruggles Green has a prime location on the plaza and an equally impressive menu to accompany it. A certified green restaurant with a passionate philosophy regarding food that is as delicious as it is healthy, diners can enjoy everything from soups, salads, tacos and pasta to burgers, sandwiches, panini and pizza, with special attention paid to gluten- and dairy-free ingredients and vegetarian fare.
Sometimes you want and burrito and other days a salad. At Chipotle, you can get both, thanks to a menu featuring burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads made from fresh, high-quality ingredients.
It really is the happiest of hours at CITYCENTRE, with so many spots to try a new varietal, sip a hand-crafted cocktail, grab a specialty beer and otherwise enjoy some down time after a busy day. May we suggest Bistro Bar, Monnalisa, RA Sushi, The Tasting Room and Yard House as options for happy hour? Of course, all the restaurant bars offer happy hour specials as well.
When dinnertime rolls around, the hardest decision you have to make is narrowing down just where to go. CITYCENTRE’s selection of restaurant is impressive and varied.Eddie V’s Prime Steakhouse is all about an excellent steak experience with all the trimmings in a sophisticated and fun environment. Of course, if you are also in the mood for a medium cooked tuna steak, Eddie V's can take care of that too, plus there's live music every evening of the week at the CITYCENTRE location.
Carnivores are counting down the days until Texas de Brazil is open. The restaurant blends the ritual of cooking over an open flame and then carving meat tableside by authentically-clad Gauchos.
If you’d like some surf with your turf, head to Straits for an exciting experience thanks to an influx of Malaysian, Indonesian, Chinese, Indian and Nonya dishes. The seafood choices really are standouts.
After dinner, satiate that sweet tooth and don’t think for one second about calories. For CITYCENTRE's array of dessert destinations, we head once again to Flora & Muse for chocolate cherry bread pudding or an apple crostada. If it’s cupcakes and cookies you crave, stop by Sweet for handcrafted delights. The macarons are delish, but then again, so are the other baked goods. Red Mango’s frozen yogurt is always a treat and when topped with fresh fruits, it's extra good for you too.
CITYCENTRE is the answer to the familiar questions, “What are you hungry for?”
In a word? Everything.
