NYC hound has an afternoon to spend in Houston and am planning on a visit to the Museum District (the Menil, the Cy Twombly Gallery, Rothko Chapel, Dan Flavin)
I could either leave my meeting (I'll be at the 4 Seasons) and have lunch before visiting, or visit the spots later and get dinner at around 7 in that neighborhood. I am rather ambivalent about whether I lunch or dine in that area, but if there are better options for one meal vs. the other, that will help.
I'd prefer BBQ, Tex-Mex, Mex, Cajun, Vietnamese, as these are local specialities that NYC doesn't do that well. I'd prefer to stay away from French and Italian as we do that great here. Steak or 'cowboy fare" (if that even exists as a category) would be an option too. I don't care about price or level of formality: can be a dive, can be 4 star.
I will not be renting a car.
