Foodie City: Houston, Texas

By Collaborate Staff, March 14, 2015

Houston’s dining scene is as diverse as its 2 million residents. With more than 10,000 restaurants serving food from 70-plus countries, there’s no shortage of delicious tastes in town. And the good news is the average price of a meal in Houston ($35.57) is less than the national average of $40.53, according to Zagat, meaning it’s a relatively affordable dining destination—surprising when you consider Houston claims a handful of celebrity chefs, like 2014 James Beard Award winner Chris Shepherd of Underbelly, Rebecca Masson of Fluff Bake Bar (a “Top Chef: Just Desserts” contestant), and Anita Jaisinghani of Pondicheri and Bryan Caswell of Reef and El Real Tex-Mex, both of whom are James Beard semifinalists. Explore Houston’s vibrant dining culture with a stroll down trendy Westheimer Road, where farm-to-table joints like Underbelly and Uchi (an outpost of the popular Austin Japanese restaurant) line the walkable street just begging for a sustainable food tour. In fact, not only are walking culinary tours available throughout the city, but top-tier chefs like Shepherd even lead them. Masson’s chocolate tour is not to be missed.
