Once again, a limited number of Houston restaurants are open for business today (Wednesday, February 17). 

Keep in mind that this situation is fluid. Places may close suddenly if they lose power or water.  Most restaurants will be serving a limited menu with limited staff. Please be patient.

Finally, only travel if it is safe to do so.

CultureMap will update this list throughout the day. Restaurant owners or their representatives may be added to the list by emailing
