Diana American Grill
Named for the late, beloved Diana Hobby, a devoted Houston patron of literacy and the arts, this new platform for pre-show dining replaces former concept Artista in the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Expect a full house buzzing with theater and other devotees on performance nights and a limited but ever-changing menu of standard steak- house fare. Our filet mignon was cooked to specs and served alongside roasted fingerling potatoes and truffle butter. Gulf red snapper, another solid dish, rested in a lemon cream sauce sweetened up with lump crab and cipollini onions. Misses included sleepy salads and a pimento cheese starter that was heavy on the mayo. Interiors have been spiffed up with a palette of midnight blue augmented by shimmering pewter Hollywood booths. But it’s the floor-to-ceiling views of the terrace and downtown that steal the show.
