The Black Labrador Restaurant Review

: Known for decades by regulars as The Black Lab, this is one of Houston’s oldest English pubs and the spirits and grub are authentic. The cozy, lace-curtained spot with a nice fireplace in winter offers up standard pub fare --- good fish ‘n’ chips, bubble and squeak, shepherd’s pie and raspberry truffle are favorites. But there’s also some pretty decent American food, including hamburgers, soups and salads. One of our favorites is the baked potato soup with cheese and bacon crumbles. A full bar features lots of British beer, Pimm’s Cups and Black and Tans. The Lab is a watering hole for the nearby university students and Montrose neighbors, and on sunny afternoons it’s a good place to take the kids to play on the patio with its big chessboard. It’s also a popular dinner spot for those heading upstairs for an evening of smooth jazz at the piano bar called Cézanne.
