A honeycomb hideout is a place (restaurant or bar) you visit that you really don't want anyone else to know about. It's your secret haven, somewhere you will most likely not run into anyone you know, and where you are certain that no one will pop up! Use this guide as you please, and whatever your reason, it will be our little secret.
Upon entrance you don't realize that this half tailor-half bar is actually a place you can drop by to unwind after a long day in the office. In addition to custom suiting, they are famous for their extensive martini menu where they blend flavors and creativity to produce some of the best cocktails in Houston, like their Blackberry Ginger Martini.
They offer some of the best Chilean Sea Bass in town and although it is a bit on the pricey side, it is well worth it. Our go to meal: Lemongrass Lychee Martini, Crispy Tempura Shrimp, and the Vietnamese Garlic Beef. Surprisingly, they have an extensive wine selection as well!
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.
Plonk can definitely be described as a neighborhood spot. Its focus is on wine, but you will find great craft beer and cocktail selections as well. The cuisine is ever-changing and is based on what is current and in season. The bistro's artwork changes based on the season too!
Although there are a limited number of seating options, the best seats in the house are those with the brown leather couches. You may have to sit upright when eating, but it is the perfect arrangement to relax when sipping a glass of wine from their menu as your dinner progresses. Also, the wines from their menu are also available for purchase.
The bar is set on a 1920's theme and you really feel like you have stepped back in time. The TV's seem hidden but they are actually playing recent movies and/or games in black and white. Happy hour is from 4:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Their swanky bar, known as the L&L Bar, that sits right smack dab in the middle of the first floor restaurant, will wow you as soon as you enter. Due to its somewhat circular construction, it is the perfect place to see it all, people watch, and enjoy a few bar bites along with their iconic cocktails.
You can either build your own dog or go with one of their signature dogs.The winner for our first visit was the Texas Chile Dog - butter toasted Challah Bread, Hebrew National Frank, Shiner Brock Chili, Fritos, and Cheese. Let's just say… if a Frito Pie had a dream for its future, what would come about is the Texas Chile dog. The bread was the secret weapon here—it’s like BUTTA baby!
Located on a residential street, you would pass this place several times if you weren't paying attention. The vibe is perfect for an intimate evening sipping wine, you always meet someone new, and the food is great! Don't miss the signature truffle parmesan popcorn!
