Artista

713-278-4782  •  $$$
ADDRESS: 800 Bagby St, Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, Houston, TX 77002
CUISINE: Contemporary
FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Patio Seating, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly
DESCRIPTION
Whether seeking a superior pre- or post-theater dinner or looking for a meal that will steal the show on its own, the Hobby Center's Artista offers a striking set for the culinary spectacle to come. Not only is the décor stunning and the view of Tranquility Park and the downtown skyline sensational, but the internationally inspired menu offers a handful of choices on par with the respected Cordúa Restaurants group's high standards. The signature crawfish taquitos are a fabulous way to pass time while pondering which sauces and vegetables to pair with your main course. Rectangular plates dramatically frame the excellent entrées, from yellow fin tuna to the churrasco steak (true to Cordúa Restaurants' Latin American origins), while the favorite tres leches dessert offers a decadent finale to a meal well played. The cool onyx wrap-around bar is a great locale to sip a cool cocktail or to do some of the best people watching in the city.
"This has to be one of the most beautiful restaurants in Houston, with one of the best views of downtown. And the food is spectacular."
Houston Press
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Full bar. On performance days: Serving lunch daily, dinner Tue–Sun. On non-performance days: Serving lunch Mon–Fri, dinner Wed–Sat, closed Sun.
