Eat, sleep, love: Affordable Houston spot named one of the best hotelrestaurants in America
One of the best things about Houston is how rewarding it is to explore, with some of the city's best offerings tucked away in houses, on side streets or found at your average hole-in-the-wall.
But it's the same quality that can make the city frustrating to an outsider. Luckily there is the eternal refuge for visitors with expense accounts — the hotel restaurant.
"Twenty years ago, hotel food was like country-club food — OK but not exciting and never top of the line. In the last 10 years, hotels decided they had to have outstanding restaurants." Zagat Survey CEO Tim Zagat told USA Today.
Zagat and USA Today named the top hotel restaurants in the 25 most-traveled cities, and Quattro, inside the Four Seasons, was named Houston's best for its "inventive fare, boutique wines and a staff that's as fabulous as the ultra-contemporary setting."
Quattro was also singled out as the most affordable restaurant of the 25, with an estimated cost of $46 for a meal.
Quattro is consistently excellent, but we would also consider Vic & Anthony's (with Inn at the Ballpark) and La Toretta's Chez Roux as Houston's top restaurants that come with optional sleeping arrangements.
