We tell you about things like Houston’s best brunches, finest burgers, and even all of the foods you should eat before you die. But now, we’re taking things to the next level with Eat Seeker — a list we’ll be updating every couple of months that includes our picks for the best restaurants in Houston at this very moment.

We break it down into two sections. Section one is made up of our picks for the Best New Restaurants that have opened in the last few months, the most buzzworthy and hip. Section two will be loaded with all of Houston’s tried and true. Those places that helped to define what a food scene could be in Houston. Wherever you choose to go, just know we would never steer you wrong.


Pappas Bros. Steakhouse
A proper Texas steakhouse that is equal parts flavor and class With two Houston locations at which you can fashion a lobster bib out of your fancy cloth napkin (Downtown and Galleria), this homegrown steakhouse is the place to bring anyone you want to impress (although, if that’s the case, maybe don’t do that lobster bib thing). But you really should come here for the steaks, which are butchered and aged in-house using a more than 28-day dry process that concentrates the flavors and makes the beef so incredibly excellent that you’ll want to save all your change to come back for more. Don’t miss the stellar wine program, or the whiskey cart, which houses selections cherry-picked by Anvil alum and bar director Matt Tanner.
