It is getting H-O-T in Houston. While it’s been in the mid-90s during the day, it actually feels pretty nice at night. And guess what? Downhouse has just opened up their patio for your summertime (evening) enjoyment!
I saw them putting in the patio last week when I was there for breakfast, and I couldn’t wait to try it out. We went for a girls’ dinner, on the perfect night (half price bottles of wine), and it was wonderful. There was a breeze blowing through, and they have large fans installed so it was very comfortable. Everyone enjoyed their dinner, and we got to chat with the friendly owner (who is a former high school chemistry teacher, which explains the large periodic table inside).
That’s the mussels on the left and the green salad with chicken breast on the right. I also had the mussels. They were big and meaty and delicious smothered in the sauce.
So if you’re near the Heights and looking to spend the evening on a great patio, be sure to check out Downhouse!
