Houston Eats: The Grove

I am in Houston on business this week and am lucky enough to be close to one of my favorite restaurants: The Grove.

The Grove is right across the driveway from the Houston Hilton and really close to the convention center. It is located on the South end of Houston’s12-acre urban park, Discovery Green.  The Grove is the definitive see-and-be-seen culinary hotspot in Houston’s urban core and has redefined downtown dining since opening in January 2008.

The architecture is the "other star" besides the food.  Architecturally stunning. Very mid-century modern. Plopped down smack dab in the middle of this beautiful park setting. It's pretty awesome.  I love this building.

I could convert this thing into a house in a heartbeat.

The grilled skirt steak... in a word? Succulent.  And can you tell me where in the world you can get world class food for a $15 entree?  Really? I've ordered it four times in the past.  I first had it with fries smothered in chili, but now, it is more traditionally served with Chiliquiles! I love it.

If you find yourself in Houston, give it a try. You will not be disappointed. The staff is friendly. The drinks are stiff and well made. The scenery, including the clientele is pretty nice. It's definitely a repeat performance.
