Now that the storm has finally passed, the vast majority of Houston’s restaurants are back up and running, ready to serve up a side of normalcy alongside the entrees. Still, after taking on water (or worse) during the floods, at least a few local favorites are closed until further notice.

For folks who are able, getting out to enjoy the city’s restaurants this weekend is a solid idea. Houston’s restaurant scene is expected to take a financial hit from the storm that could linger for weeks.
