Houston Press' Description

Chef and owner Kevin Naderi has created Roost as a reflection of his own culinary inspirations, and they are many: It’s farm-to-table, by way of Persian, Japanese, Thai, Korean and Mediterranean flavors alongside local craft beer and a short wine list. It all works, though, and the nightly crowds at the River Oaks/Montrose location attest to this. The menu changes nearly every week, although Gulf fish and locally raised lamb are popular inclusions in Roost’s entrees. Naderi’s signature dish - roasted cauliflower topped with bonito flakes - is one of the few constants, and not to be missed.

    Well priced, cozy -amazing smells from the kitchen spur menu curiosity. My friend had the pork chop and I had the oven roasted chicken breast. Both are recommended along with house wine selections.

    A genuine jewel in Montrose. Ask for Kevin owner/chef to have a word. Excellent service and trendy food. An intimate experience in a neighbourhood restaurant. Excellent

    They change out the menu every 3-4 weeks so you always have new items to try. But the roasted cauliflower -It's always there & the sauce is amazing!!
