The Hottest Restaurants in Houston Right Now, July 2017

July 5, 2017 | Eater Houston

Where to dine tonight, tomorrow, this weekend

Summer has arrived, which means that it’s time for a fresh update of the Eater Houston Heatmap, a monthly guide intended to answer that age old question: “Where should I eat tonight?”

This month’s update of the Eater Houston Heatmap brings the arrival of much-anticipated Japanese steak and sushi spot Roka Akor, along with massively popular Taiwanese chain 85C Bakery Cafe. Also back is Underbelly, which recently introduced a major revamp to its menu. As always, a new month means it’s time to say farewell to some newly-opened favorites on the Heatmap, including Piggy’s Kitchen & Bar and Chris Shepherd’s One Fifth Steak.

Added: Roka Akor, 85C Bakery Cafe, Underbelly, Alice Blue, Chapman & Kirby, Tarka Indian Kitchen
