Yesterday Bon Appetit magazine posted their picks for the 50 best new restaurants in America and three local watering holes made the grade. In what was the location of our favorite burger/hotdog joint (next door to the Houston photo studio we use from time to time) is the restaurant Oxheart, the second is the popular Underbelly on Westheimer, and the third the always mobbed Austin import, Uchi.
Oxheart hosts a pre-fixe tasting menus of regional fare, Underbelly describes itself as a new take on American Creole cuisine, and Uchi offers a contemporary take on Japanese dining and sushi.
Have you been to all three?
