Having heard many an homage to this upscale downtown spot serving “nouveau American” food, we had to stop by on our way north out of Houston. Order this to go: The blackened chicken salad sandwich made for a pleasant late lunch selection. The meat on the shaved ribeye sandwich could have been a bit more on the tender side but was good nonetheless. We shared the crispy sweet potato fries and made-in-house chips. Pro tip: Take your to-go order to Tigerville Park and picnic on the shores of the lovely Lake Livingston.
