The Lounge at March Restaurant
Where to Eat in Houston Right Now
The gist: After much anticipation, the Goodnight Hospitality team (Rosie Cannonball, Montrose Cheese & Wine) fittingly opened the doors to this stunning Mediterranean tasting menu emporium back in March.
The food: Chef-partner Felipe Riccio whisks diners through a modern, Levant-oriented journey in six or nine courses, which might range from Snapper Crudo with chermoula to Couscous with fennel and urchin. Helmed by an all-star team spanning beverage director Mark Sayre, master sommelier and partner June Rodil, and bar manager Alex Negranza, the wine and cocktail programs are also of note—and make good use of the 11,000-bottle-deep cellar lurking below.
The cost: Tasting menus $175-$225, additional wine pairings $70 - $180.
