2. The Pass & Provisions 807 Taft St, Houston, TX 77019

These two sibling restaurants, one more casual and one on the classier end, actually share one kitchen. Boasting some killer cocktails, basketball flooring and accessible dishes, Provisions is an intimate neighborhood spot, while The Pass is best for those with their fancy pants on.

3. Backstreet Café 1103 S Shepherd Dr, Houston, TX 77019 (Montrose)

Backstreet serves up American eats in a '30s style converted house with garden seating. The menus are constantly being updated to reflect the freshest seasonal flavors, and they feature Southern, Hispanic and Asian cuisine. During brunch hours, an advance reservation is an advisable (if not required) move for this happening spot.

4. Cook & Collins 2416 Brazos St Ste C, Houston, TX 77006 (Midtown)

With a clean, rustic interior (plus an upstairs portion that opens up as a patio), Cook & Collins has a very inviting atmosphere, in which you'll find a small but well-thought-out list of draft beers, a solid wine list, and a delicious brunch menu with hearty offerings like the BBQ Breakfast (pork belly, root beer BBQ, mac and cheese, blackberry muffin, cinnamon crumble). Don't forget to try one of their specialty Bloody Marys either, with Tito's, bacon, poached shrimp, pickled green tomato, bleu cheese-stuffed olive, celery, and a special blend of spices.

7. Danton's Gulf Coast Seafood Kitchen 4611 Montrose , Houston, TX 77006 (Montrose)

Occupying the bottom floor of Montrose's Chelsea Market, Danton's Gulf Coast Seafood Kitchen is a timeless 200-seat seafood restaurant with both a dining room and a separate oyster bar. You won't find any fast-fleeing trends in the atmosphere or the food here, just a constant after-work dinner rush and a menu full of Southern favorites. Big groups can usually be found around a platter of fresh-shucked oysters, and temptation for grilled fish or steak rarely bows out.

9. Beaver's 2310 Decatur St, Houston, TX 77007

Although this Sixth Ward BBQ spot offers top notch ribs and brisket, it has two main attractions: the first is a smoky queso (made with smoked asadero cheese, green chillis, and pico de gallo), while the second is a bacon omelette biscuit: an expertly crafted cheese omelette stacked with copious amounts of bacon and sausage with a chipotle honey and cream gravy blanket. Other menu items include Southern-style fare like fried pickles, barbacoa empanadas, and creative mac 'n' cheese.
