Italian Restaurant
$$
“They don’t take reservations, but if you’re willing to wait in the garden with a cocktail amongst your live, leafy dinner waiting to be plucked, you won’t regret it. Their deliciously light and perfectly flavored pastas and pizzas will dazzle you.”

Café
$$
“Located at Oxford and White Oak Dr. This place could also be listed under restaurants because the food is so good, but is primarily a bar. It has a low key vibe if the idea of a loud, busy bar isn’t what you are looking for.”

Restaurant
$$$$
“Chef Justin Yu joined forces with his pastry chef wife, Karen Man, to create a restaurant that's wholly Houston except for one notable thing: Instead of sprawl, the tiny Oxheart seats only 30 people. Yu and Man highlight locally grown produce and locally raised meats on their veggie-heavy menus, which change from week to week. Three different chef's tasting menus are available at night, priced from two affordable four-course menus to a more extravagant affair with seven courses. All three tasting menus are available with wine pairings, which are as joyfully unusual as the food: a sweet Blandy's Sercial Madeira paired with a dusky, savory sunflower seed soup, for example, or Kalin Cellars Sem”
