Just a stone’s throw away from one of the best universities in the country, Rice Village is also home to some of Houston’s finest restaurants.
And thanks to a measure put in place by the City of Houston last year, many of those restaurants, from tiny cafes to large local chains, have established outdoor parklets and sidewalk tables that allow for socially-distanced dining. As the springy Houston weather becomes more pleasant, the neighborhood has taken on the vibe of a European city, where diners sit on terraces, sipping their coffee or enjoying a leisurely lunch while people-watching the nearby shoppers.
Whether in search of excellent Mediterranean cuisine, late-night drunk fare, a healthy lunch, or a regular brunch spot, these 18 restaurants showcase the culinary diversity of the neighborhood that surrounds Rice University.
