The Grove Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant: This hip venture from the Schiller Del Grande folks (of RDG + Bar Annie fame) is nestled amid the tree- and sculpture-filled Discovery Green park in downtown Houston. The 10,000-square-foot space of wood floors and floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the park is cool and elegant while the rooftop Treehouse is a bustling place for the in-crowd to drink before heading to a nearby Rockets game. The Grove is also park-friendly, utilizing its own garden-grown herbs and tomatoes and using eco-friendly to-go containers.

Food & Drinks: The menu might start off with local catch fritters or chile con queso, before moving on to chicken tortilla soup, Gulf fish pibil, blue crab macaroni and cheese, and and grilled pork chop with stone fruit, mostarda and fried jalapeƱo. Eclectic cocktails and an extensive wine list, plus a dessert menu that includes banana pudding tiramisu, add to the experience. Sundays feature a brunch buffet.
