One Fifth Mediterranean
Where to Eat in Houston Right Now
The gist: This game-changing restaurant from chef and local hero Chris Shepherd and his talented team—including but not limited to chef de cuisine Matt Staph, culinary director Nick Fine, and pastry director Victoria Dearmond—shifts its focus to red sauce Italian for its final run.
The food: After taking a turn through steaks, pastas, oysters, kabobs, and more, the dynamic crew at One Fifth is cheff-ing it up Italian-style with a bill of familiar comforts in all their red sauce-drenched glory. We’re talking homestyle Spaghetti and Meatballs, luscious baked pastas, ooey-gooey Chicken Parm, and a New York-style Cheesecake to rival anything Brooklyn has to offer.
The cost: Starters $12 - $24, mains $17 - $145, pastas $22 - $29, desserts $12.
