Description

Houston Press' Description

This order-at-the-counter place should have something for all tastes. A fast-moving line ensures that your meal will not take long. Del Grande's touch can be seen throughout the menu. A simple shrimp and avocado salad is enhanced by chipotle salsa and jicama. The black bean soup is made bolder with roasted tomatoes. The California burger, in addition to having slices of avocado, also includes artichoke hearts. Heartier dishes include a Spanish chicken romesco made with roasted peppers and almonds, and the roasted half-chicken with garlic mashed potatoes. Various locations around town.

  • CultureMap Houston M. on 03/06/12

    Best bet: order box lunches and then head over to the museum’s sculpture garden across the street for a little picnic amid the masterpieces.
