Good news, Houston. Tomorrow, February 18th, is National Drink Wine Day, and oenophiles across the country will be celebrating with a glass or two of their favorite varietals. As it happens, tomorrow is also Sunday—a time for leisurely brunches and long conversation among friends. Happily, one Houston eatery brings the occasions together with an appealing, ongoing special.
Local Foods has been a favorite of visitors and locals alike since its first location opened in 2011. Now, the brand debuts its highly-anticipated fifth location, housed in the historic Heights neighborhood’s vibrant new development, Heights Mercantile.
On this day of love, we celebrate not only the special people in our lives, but also the beautiful city in which we make some of our best memories. Houston is a stunning place—a sprawling giant with distinct and memorable corners. It is Space City, where we celebrate the next frontier. It is Bayou City, which sometimes floods but always comes back stronger than ever. It is Clutch City. It is Astros City. It is the city we call home, and the city we’re so proud to welcome you to.
There are so many reasons to love Houston—here are our favorite few:
The work of Houston artist (and St. Thomas alum) Loida Wexler will be recognized at a reception hosted by local restaurant Urban Eats on Saturday, February 24.

Ms. Wexler’s appearance is part of their “Urban Arts” series of exhibitions celebrating up-and-coming artists alongside artisanal, local food.

Even Houstonians have to admit it — there’s something innately romantic about New Orleans. With food, drink, and music as its primary muses, it’s hard not to feel a little starry eyed in Crescent City. Luckily, we needn’t always spend six hours on I-10 to get a taste of what makes our neighbor to the east so special. Not when we have Tony Mandola’s Gulf Coast Kitchen around.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a city can’t have too many steak joints. In February, Houston will welcome an exciting new concept from the owners of Redfish Grill, serving prime rib and seafood in the Galleria area: Blue Onyx Bistro.
