The November Hit List: Little’s Oyster Bar, Bludorn, Sewist’s Room, and More


In Houston, you never know what kind of weather you’re going to get in November — swampy, bone dry, blazing hot, freezing cold, or all of the above in the same day. But thankfully, the city’s been blessed of late with the gorgeous fall temperatures we’ve been longing for since this record warm year began. And we can think of nothing more we’d like to do than enjoy a hearty meal in a cozy restaurant, or delight in the comfortable autumn breeze while dining al fresco.

Luckily for Houstonians, options for both abound. May we suggest grabbing dinner on the charming back patio at seafood oasis Little’s Oyster Bar (the Houston Chronicle’s No. 1 restaurant pick for 2023)? Or spending happy hour sampling the new bar bites at Museum District hot spot Le Jardinier? Or checking out Mamajuana Cafe and Michy’s Chino Boricua, whose winning combination of Latin and Asian flavors are winning raves?

Consider this month’s Resy Hit List your guide to finding the perfect spot as we slide into this most celebratory time of year. There’s something for every occasion, so dive in.
