  • Theodore Rex - Warehouse District - Houston, TX - Yelp
  • Menu – Theodore Rex



Just days before Harvey hit Houston, the newest corner restaurant at 1302 Nance St. in Downtown’s old warehouse district looked ready to debut. The photos here, taken by Swamplot reader Will Breaux shortly before the rains came and the waters swelled, show the spot formerly occupied by Oxheart sporting a new exterior paint job and window nameplate.

Inside, renovations had been taking place for months. Proprietor Justin Yu had plans to open Theodore Rex later in August. But the restaurant flooded. Now, he writes , “it might take a little more time to open.”

Houston has spent a lot of 2017 in the spotlight. From playing host to Super Bowl LI, to its resilience in the face of Hurricane Harvey, to having the Houston Astros win their first-ever World Series Championship just last week, the city has been unstoppable. And that goes for the Houston restaurant industry as well.

Since 2012, Houston’s stature as one of America’s great food cities has risen exponentially, earning respect from chefs like Momofuku’s David Chang, who, in a recent essay for GQ  magazine, called Houston the next global food mecca. With three of the last four years’ worth of James Beard Awards for Best Chef Southwest going to Houston chefs, the city now has the edge over hot spots like Austin and New Orleans in terms of the best places to eat. Want to begin exploring? Start with these 12 places:

Created as a stage to showcase owner and master sushi chef Chris Kinjo’s culinary artistry, the 12-seat MF sushi bar is an experience that’s easily among the best in the country. Throughout the two- to three-hour, 20-plus course omakase, you’ll be mesmerized by Kinjo’s knife skills and sushi technique as he regales you with piece after piece of glistening, mouthwatering, deftly prepare sushi and sashimi. The menu changes daily according to what’s flown in, and it’s all good, be it kinmedai Japanese golden eye snapper from Tsukiji, pristine ocean trout from Tasmania or live Santa Barbara uni.  1401 Binz Street Suite 100, Houston, TX; 713-637-4587;  mfsushihouston.us
