The July Hit List: One Fifth Goes Italian, Yelo, Handies Douzo, and More

By

The temperature outside continues to heat up as we enter mid-summer, and so does Houston’s dining scene. Restaurants are increasingly awakening from their pandemic slowdowns, vaccinated patrons are returning to indoor dining, and things seem, dare we say it, normal-ish.

Along with old standbys, diners also have an array of noteworthy newcomers to choose from. Some points of interest: Chris Shepherd has shifted One Fifth again, this time paying tribute to classic Italian red sauce; Le Jardinier serves up veg-forward works of art; and Yelo’s imaginative banh mi offerings make the trek to Katy worthwhile. Check out these gems, and more, on our July Hit List.
