This West Houston mixed-use development serves as a gathering place for shopping, dining, entertainment, and social events. This guide will provide you with a few hot spots when heading there for a few hours, a day, or an entire weekend!
Straits always wins us over with their delicious house infused cocktails and authentic Singaporean street food. Each season they introduce innovative menu creations from the kitchen and bar that satisfy and please the palate. On a great afternoon or evening make your way to a cabana on the patio!
Coming across a great lunch spot, that is not jam packed at 12:00 p.m. on a weekday, comes a dime a dozen. Well, Bistro Alex is a great option and there is never a wait. Your typical lunch needs are met by way of soups, chopped salads, burgers and flatbread pizzas. But, they also catch you off guard and throw in items like their Corn Bisque, Salmon BLT, and the famous Brennan's Turtle Soup. For those that are not aware, Bistro Alex is a member of the Brennan’s family of restaurants.
Cyclone Anaya's has some of the best crab nachos in Houston...hands down! There is no skimping on the jumbo lump crab meat so go ahead and get the full order because your friends will force you to share. FYI...you may go for the margaritas but you will stay for the Guiltless Mojitos (under 130 calories).
If you go to Eddie V's and you do NOT try the Bananas Foster you should be ashamed of yourself...lol! The Eddie V's Bananas Foster is a very moist butter yellow cake topped with caramelized bananas that is set on fire with a rum and brown sugar mixture. .
They offer the widest selection of fresh olive oils and authentic imported balsamic vinegars available in this region of Texas. This retail shop and tasting bars roster of goodies is ever- evolving making it perfect for cooking, snacking, and gifting. Plus the owners are some of the nicest folks you'll ever meet!
The Fast Break Lunch is a weekday lunch program designed to help diners make the most out of their lunch break, offering fresh food that can be eaten at the restaurant or taken to go.
If you are a lover of cucumber cocktails, then the Juniper Fusion is a must try! This muddled cucumber and strawberry concoction is refreshing and under 176 calories! This is one of the many "Fresh & Skinny" cocktails made with their own house citrus agave blend.
This Italian-inspired luxury hotel is ultra-sleek and ideal for a weekend in the city or for folks vacationing in our fine city. It's centrally located right in the middle of CityCentre to take full advantage of all the shops, bars, and restaurants in the development .
You can come here and get dinner, movie, and a few cocktails. Plus they've recently added the ability to select your seats when purchasing your tickets...we LOVE it! Additonally, they are always doing Groupon and Amazon deals, so lookout for these great specials.
At Red Mango...you call the shots! Great concept - you choose your frozen yogurt, choose a cup or cone, then add your favorite toppings. Word to the wise...since you're paying by weight, be careful not to overdo it on the toppings! This location is self service only.
They know a little something about paper goods! This place is your one stop shop for stationary and cards, wrapping paper and gift bags. They have a good selection of Knick-Knacks and zany gifts.
This eco-friendly and adorable little bakery in City Centre puts the yum in sweets. They offer a plethora of different cupcakes flavors by way of daily specials, but they do have about 8 regular flavors that are available everyday. The macarons are also worth a try.
Not only does this store provide quality workout apparel that is technically made for specific activities (running, yoga, spin, etc.), they provide free yoga classes and many in-stores events!
Yes, Sur La Table is a great place to pick up some pretty cool cooking gadgets, but don't miss out on the cooking classes. The date night classes are great and during the summer months they offer cooking camps for the kiddos.
We can't think of accessories and not think of Houston's own Elaine Turner. Miss Thing knows her a way around a handbag just in case you were wondering. But don't put her in a box, because she can make some pretty nice shoes and apparel as well!
A great place for unique, affordable, and one of a kind jewelry. The interactive "create your own piece" really gives Kendra Scott the edge over her competitors. The touch monitor, located on the wall of the studio, allows you to pick and choose from a of variety designs and color options. Your creation is then "built" right on site in a matter of minutes.
