It’s officially patio season! After a year of being cooped up indoors, we are certain that nothing sounds better than sitting outdoors in the Houston sunshine while enjoying socially distanced snacks and libations. Its a good thing that Houston, Texas is home to a plethora of patios where you can take advantage of both beautiful, outdoor space and diversified eats. Whether you’re in search of a fine dining establishment with skyline views or a casual place to chow down on some low-brow bar food, these 3 Houston patios definitely fit the bill.
Truck Stop – 2118 Lamar Street, Houston, Texas 77003
Go for drinks on the patio and stay for live music at this sprawling multi-level bar in EaDo, which features a rotating line-up of musicians and a permanent Ferris wheel that is perfect for some Instagram-worthy pics. Truck Stop touts itself as a “come-as-you-are beer garden and adult playground” where you can enjoy excellent bar food, like a Philly Cheesesteak with your choice of meat, cheese, and veggies or the Ribeye Nachos. If that isn’t your speed, check out their calendar of alternating food trucks, which include the likes of Baby’s Burgers, Boom Box Tacos, and Nola Po Boys – just to name a few.
Musaafer – 5115 Westheimer Road, Suite C-3500, Houston, Texas 77056
If you’re looking for less of a beer garden vibe and more of a fine dining experience, look no farther than Musaafer on Westheimer Road. With its palatial décor, Musaafer is arguably one of Houston’s grandest restaurants, and it offers a majestic patio to match. The second level terrace, which looks out upon the bustling Galleria area below, is lined with cabana-like seating areas, vibrant cushions, and sheer, white drapes. While you enjoy the ambiance, you can also indulge in upscale Indian dishes, like Beef Vindaloo, Malwani Fish Curry, and Kolkata Mutton Biryani.
Tiny Boxwoods – 3614 W Alabama Street, Houston, Texas 77027
With its lush grounds and rustic décor, this West U hideaway is home to one of the best outdoor dining spaces in the city. Tiny Boxwoods offers brunch, lunch, and dinner from the perfect patio setting, where you can comfortably people-watch from your table or a decadent couch lounger. Stay for a while and please your palate with their Cheese & Meat Board, which comes with local cheese, cured meats, whole grain mustard cream, fresh figs, flatbread, and much more. Tiny Boxwoods also has plenty of salads, burgers, wraps, and cocktails to enjoy – and don’t forget desserts, like their Goat Cheese Cheesecake or Blueberry Galette with homemade vanilla ice cream!
