Houston Press' Description

Danton Nix isn't Cajun, but you'd never know it from his spot-on Cajun and Creole dishes at his namesake restaurant. Tucked into an unassuming building in the Museum District, Danton's always feels like your own secret discovery. Nights spent gulping down fresh Gulf oysters in the mahogany-paneled bar with an IPA or Sundays spent at its laid-back jazz brunches are some of the best dining experiences to be had in Houston. Try the oyster stew with tasso or the crawfish half-and-half for a taste of the Big Easy in the Bayou City.

    Two local Houston boys who grew up fishing the Gulf Coast have opened the perfect place for gumbo, oysters, crawfish, remoulade and more. As it's in the museum district, the cozy bar makes for a nice bite and drink before or after any exhibit.

    Went here on New Year's Eve. Classy place. Delish oysters (don't know about now what with the Spill). Cajun Bloody Mary was the best, tasted like gumbo.

    They had great food at the Houston Press Menu of Menus Extravaganza.
