Houston Press' Description

Haven is a "seasonal kitchen" tucked away off Upper Kirby featuring local ingredients and inventive twists on classics like shrimp and grits, dirty rice and Mexican elotes, along with well-executed standards: a fried-egg sandwich with gruyere and bacon, a Texas cheddar burger served with house tater tots, and the catch of the day plated with tomatoes and okra. The kitchen's respect for the freshness and simplicity of ingredients shines through, and the desserts, including a Texas buttermilk pecan pie and coconut tres leches bread pudding, are not to be missed.

    Eco-conscious, local ingredients at the hands of chef Randy Evans morph into contemporary fresh creations. Ask about the themed dinners.
