Business lunch specials: Top downtown Houston Restaurant Week midday options
For a district that buzzes with people in the daytime, it sometimes seems like every restaurant downtown without counter service only opens up at night.
And during Houston Restaurant Week, when even those without expense accounts can afford to eat like kings, the paucity of high-end lunch spots is even more frustrating. But don't worry: we've got the scoop on the places in the skyline district with great Restaurant Week deals on offer even at noon.
The lunch courses have over 10 options each, from ceviche to hummus to quail skewers to start and salads, burgers, shrimp brochette and skirt steak among the entrees, so one can eat well without necessarily eating heavy.
This long-time restaurant in The Four Seasons has been given fresh life by new chef Maurizio Ferrares, bringing true Italian flair from Four Seasons Florence Plus we like that the Quattro menu is the same at lunch and dinner, with the difference being that at lunch diners pick selections from whichever two courses they want of appetizer, entree and dessert. Bring on the sweets!
This gorgeously revamped spot may be a great place for a nightcap but it also serves some very respectable new American fare, with a menu under the direction of Pedro Silva. For restaurant week try the roasted poblano chicken soup and the mahi-mahi fish tacos.
How does one steakhouse distinguish itself from the others during Restaurant Week? By offering a lunch deal and — bonus! — serving a trio of courses instead of the standard two.
Both Bella Restaurants concepts, Cava and Cielo aren't offering a ton of menu choices for lunch, but in spartan north downtown they are a refreshing slice of upscale.
