In a sprawling metropolis like Houston, the restaurant scene is as varied and interesting as the city itself – and it doesn’t easily fit into neat categories. Besides, not only is Houston the fourth largest city in the United States (with loads of things to do to prove it), but it's also home to food as diverse as the people within its vast geographical scope.

Tex-Mex, barbecue and Gulf Coast seafood are musts – but so are top-notch New American/Texan spots and the multi-faceted flavors of the city’s international residents.
