Georgia James is Chris Shepherd’s brand-new steakhouse, informed in part by One Fifth’s “Steak” stint and housed in the space that was formerly his award-winning restaurant, Underbelly. With a razor sharp focus on high-quality, well-sourced ingredients and a nuanced wine list that highlights obscure regions and varietals, it’s not your traditional chophouse. Come with a party of at least four to enjoy the chef’s signature “baller board”—a giant platter piled high with the restaurant’s very best offerings.
From Chris Shepherd’s highly anticipated, brand-new steakhouse to a modern bistro pouring only natural wines, these restaurants are fueling Houston’s fire. When it comes to dining out, this city is hot.
