This week's Houston restaurant has one of the the very coolest patios, is kid friendly... and is also half beer garden. Yes, beer garden.
I had heard this place was in Houston and that early in the day the crowds were small and the scene was family friendly... and when we drove by, my kids nearly jumped from the moving vehicle to play on the patio.
For a late weekday lunch, we had much of the space to ourselves. I reminded the kids that it was not a playground, but an awesome patio, and to swing gently on dozen hammocks. After trying out every single one (and only "accidentally" flipping a sister out of one), we settled for our favorites.
In the evenings, I know the place gets busy and there are a lot of young adults at the beer garden. But, for lunch or early dinner, the place was nice and calm (except for the one flip-my-sister-from-a-hammock incident).
If you are up for something new... and don't mind dodging the grown up crowd to do it, check out Luigi's Pizza in midtown! More pictures and a map are below!
