Coming down from NY for the Holidays and having never spent any real time in Houston I need your help in finding favorite spots. I tend to like very wellmade food but I'm not so into "sceney" spots. That said, if they have great food and it happens to be hip all the better.
I would love some recs (west of downtown if possible, but willing to roam) for the following:
Good tacos particularly with great chorizo,
yummy breakfast (either brunch style or just great pastries),
strong delicious margaritas,
easygoing/young peoples restaurant serving locally raised foods
organic friendly eateries or markets
somewhere to get smoothies!
lastly is there a farmers market or culinary hot spot neighborhood worth visiting?
Really appreciate your help on all fronts!
