The Spindletop Restaurant Review

: High atop the downtown Hyatt Regency is the city’s only revolving restaurant. Spindletop, named for the oil well that started the state’s oil boom in 1901, is only open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, but the spectacular view of downtown makes it a special occasion place, especially for visitors. Executive hotel chef Frank Majowicz turns out classic American dishes along with a regional, seasonal menu using locally sourced produce. Expect Gulf Coast seafood, Texas beef and even a touch of Cajun cooking. The restaurant also turns out a signature paella using spicy chorizo sausage mixed in with the seafood. Pastry chef Regina Martinez whips up sweets such as apple jalapeño tarts served with dulce de leche ice cream, and a bourbon crème caramel with Texas grapefruit and candied pecans.
