Houston Press' Description

Chef Chris Shepherd's first restaurant of his very own made Time's list of places to eat before the Armageddon hits – before Underbelly was even open in Montrose. Billed as "the story of Houston food," Shepherd's menu is heavy on the Mexican, Vietnamese, Korean and other ethnic influences that have shaped Houston's food scene in the last generation. It's heavy on meat, too, as befitting a chef known for his charcuterie. Lunch is quiet and the wood-toned wine bar inviting after work, but dinner services are consistently packed.

    From its rigorous commitment to local ingredients to its all-star kitchen staff, there's nothing about Chris Shepherd's restaurant that doesn't embody "the soul of Houston food." [Eater 38 Member]

    Korean braised goat and dumplings was easily my favorite dish and we tried a ton. Smaller plates (right side of the menu) were better. The yardbird was pretty awful.
