Houston Press' Description

Housed in a charming '30s-era house, Backstreet Cafe lies just off of South Shepherd in River Oaks. Cozy up in one of three intimate dining rooms as you nosh on jazzed-up Southern and Italian classics from renowned chef Hugo Ortega. Standouts include the seafood-stuffed Gulf Coast beignets, pecan-crusted chicken, and eggs Benedict over cheddar-chive biscuits. Not to mention the restaurant has a brilliantly curated wine list from sommelier Sean Beck. When the weather is nice, be sure to sit under the tall trees out on Backstreet's stunning New Orleans-esque patio; it's easily one of the best in town.

    Quaint, understated, and classy as hell. I feel like I'm eating in the chef's own house. Amazing cocktail creations, one of the most knowledgeable and friendliest sommeliers in town (Sean Beck), and fresh, innovative, inspired dishes for any appetite.
