If the chew fits. Trend-setting restaurants worth stepping out to.

Vibrant Memorial Park
With an interior as light-filled and stunning as the Montrose original, Vibrant is now open in Memorial Park. Expect an all-day menu with no refined sugars, dairy or gluten in a setting that showcases the natural world around it.
Ema Heights
With dishes designed to educate Houston on food made with heirloom corn and Mexican and Latin American gastronomy, Ema offers a simple menu that will take you on a journey. No meal is complete without an excellent coffee and fresh pan dulce.
Late August Midtown
Housed inside mixed used development the Ion, the newest venture from the players behind Lucille’s is named for a magical time of year, with an emphasis on hyperlocal seasonal harvests and the foods of the two chefs’ childhoods.
Maximo West University
From the design-minded owners of Local Foods and Eau Tour, Maximo offers counter service in a sophisticated setting. Tuck in over fish tacos on handmade tortillas de Nixtamal, fresh salads, margaritas and other Mexican staples. In nice weather, the pretty tile patio beckons for an extended lunch.
