The August Hit List: Georgia James Tavern, Kata Robata, Haidilao, and More


August has arrived, and a host of new restaurant openings and exciting menu refreshes have come with it. More and more, Houston’s dining scene reflects the increasingly diverse population who call the Bayou City home — and residents’ tastebuds are better off for that.

There’s the Underbelly group’s casual Georgia James spinoff; the welcome return of omakase at Kata Robata; the launch of Doris Metropolitan’s Israeli-influenced bakery Badolina; and the long-simmering debut of famed Sichuan hot pot chain Haidilao. This month’s Hit List has all the intel.
