The Grove Restaurant Review

: 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. The menu draws from local farmers to whip up the deviled eggs, a good appetizer before sinking your teeth into Gulf shrimp and street corn, steak frites or short rib tacos. Eclectic cocktails and an extensive wine list, plus a dessert menu that includes banana pudding tiramisu, add to the experience.
