We’re just going to come right out and say it: Houston is the country’s most underrated seafood destination. Thanks to its proximity to the Gulf Coast and the fact that it’s easier than ever to ship in top-quality seafood from all over the world, there’s never been a better time to be a seafood lover in Houston than right now.
And because the city is home to such a diverse array of cultures and culinary heritages, there isn’t just one style of cooking or specific protein that dominates at Houston restaurants. Instead, diners will find an incredible collection of plates ranging from stunning sushi preparations and Central American ceviches to Viet-Cajun crawfish and Creole classics, all at a variety of price points.
Throughout the week, Eater Houston will showcase Houston’s stunning seafood scene, and there’s something for every seafood lover here. From luxurious dining destinations serving the world’s finest crab, lobster, and uni, to casual seafood shacks slinging ridiculously fresh oysters and crispy fried Gulf fish. Dive in, y’all — it’s going to be a seriously delicious week.
