Magnolia Hotels | friends having dinner

There’s something about traveling that brings out your inner foodie. Sampling the local cuisine is a fun activity that everyone can enjoy, whether it’s a romantic date night out or a family dinner with the kids. In Downton Houston, it seems like there’s a new local restaurant popping up on every corner. If you’ve booked an upcoming stay at Magnolia Houston, here are some top Downtown Houston restaurants that should be on your list.

Hearsay – Market Square

Great for happy hour or brunch, this American gastropub has it all. Dine among art-deco décor known as “chic antique,” reminiscent of Houston’s historic character. The food menu offers inspired renditions of American contemporary cuisine, like Deviled Eggs, Crab Cakes, and Grilled Double Pork Chop served with cheddar grits. Looking for brunch? According to Yelp, this is one of the only places in Downtown Houston that offers bottomless mimosas on Saturdays.

Rachels Café – Downtown

Experience Southern hospitality and one heck of a burger at this local spot. It’s not super fancy inside, but don’t let that stop you. Locals rave about the Mushroom Swiss Burger, Bacon Cheeseburger, and Onion Rings. Even though you might have to wait in line during the lunch rush, it’s worth it! Plan accordingly because this burger joint is closed on Sundays.

The Pho Spot – Conservatory

If you’re looking for a unique dining experience, head to The Pho Spot for lunch or dinner. This Vietnamese spot is at Conservatory, Houston’s underground beer garden and food hall. Order cafeteria style and sit in an open hall-style dining room. You can customize your pho with interesting toppings like oxtail and bone marrow. The portions are generous, considering the bowls start at $10, according to Yelp.

Irma’s Southwest Grill – Downtown By The Ballpark

Irma’s is an ideal spot for families or large parties looking for some delicious Southwest cuisine. A few local favorites are the fresh guacamole, Homemade Pork Tamales, and Irma’s Original Fajitas. The nice thing about Irma’s is you can make a reservation ahead of time. Just give them a call!
