Dine Heights

in Life, Heights, Dine

There are a lot of restaurants in the Heights, with new ones opening at near alarming regularity, but these are just a few out of many, a mixture of old and new. Liberty Kitchen (1050 Studewood), the brainchild of owner Lance Fegan and executive chef Samuel Beier brought some much-needed buzz to the Heights restaurant scene. 

Triple A (2526 Airline), located next to Canino’s Market, has been bringing classic meat and three realness (homemade baked rolls, fresh vegetables fresh from Canino’s, and daily specials) since 1942. 

Down House (1801 Yale) is a great little neighborhood hang-out combined with a foodie haunt. Think great coffee, beer on tap, breakfasts and burgers, as well as unique dishes like smoked pork belly quesadillas or braised beef cheeks for dinner. Pappa Geno’s (1801 Ella) serves cheesesteak as it should be, as good as any outside of Philadelphia, along with gravy fries worth falling off of any diet wagon.

Bellissimo’s (1848 Airline) is a hybrid of sorts, serving Italian food with Mexican “flair.” Whatever they’re doing works, especially with their grilled tuna served on a poblano pesto risotto, farfalle al cilantro, and jalapeno pizza. And a little further down Airline, Tampico Seafood (2115 Airline) serves up a truly memorable whole red snapper a la plancha, one of Houston’s most underrated seafood dishes.
