Dining Guide


Coltivare, in Houston.

Fresh, imaginative food in a casual setting continues to draw crowds, and on balmy days, the outdoor patio, flanked by herbs and greenery, makes a peaceful setting. Recent highlights? Charred broccoli salad with a lovely medley of crisped chickpeas, delicate ribbons of onion, and roasted lemon vinaigrette and a heavier small plate, plump chicken wings with lemon verbena, basil, and a definite kick, deserving of the accompanying towelettes. One of us then went with a satisfying pizza topped with spicy pepperoni, tomato sauce, mozzarella, and greens, while the other enjoyed tagliatelle bolognese with Parmesan, a pretty pile of thick pasta and mellow meat sauce. We resisted the temptation of the famous cacio e pepe, though we did take an order home! Among the great desserts, the salted caramel ganache and Meyer lemon cake are our favorites.
