Houston Press' Description

This beautifully refurbished bank in the Heights is a truly inviting place to linger over cocktails or coffee, which are available at nearly any hour of the day. If it's food you're after, Down House does that well, too: At lunch, indulge in a Longhorn burger, coated with cheddar and served with housemade pickles. And at breakfast or brunch — maybe taken on Down House's pretty patio — enjoy a wide range of dishes from giant breakfast tacos to fried green tomato-and-egg sandwiches.

    One of the best cortado in the city plus a thoughtful breakfast/brunch menu. The interior is comfortably funky and the surrounding area makes for a nice walk after your meal. You should go.

Tips from foursquare

  • CultureMap Houston on 11/29/11

    Down House's hybrid system can make service confusing. Seating is open, and no matter where you sit — the bar, the couches or the more traditional tables — there's a server to wait on you.

    You people who give reviews instead of tips are useless. We're already here. Go yelp you weenies.

    Known as a "bartender's bartender" for his efficient preparation and friendly demeanor, Jeremy Olivier leads the cocktail program at this restaurant that become an essential part of the Heights scene.

    Hmmm... They offer beer pairings with every dish. Try the pork belly banh mi, grilled lemon chicken sandwich with olive tapanade or the fish tacos with sauteed cabbage and carrots. Can be pricey.

    Service is slow and inattentive. Food wasn't that great either. Go to Yale Street Grill instead.
