Going back to Houston -- advise requested

Disneyfreak | Jun 26, 2013 11:41 AM

Last year I went to Houston for the first time ever. I had dinner at Underbelly, Reef, Feast and Hawthorne. All were good. I was sorry to hear that Feast and Hawthorne closed.

Now I'm coming back! I will be staying at the Springhill Suites - Medical Center on Old Spanish Trail. I Ill not have a car, but they have a shuttle that will take you a 3 mile radius. I'm on a limited budget of $60 a day for food -- but I spend that mostly on dinner.

I have been making a list of dinner choices -- which is far too long for the 4 nights I will have in town. Right now my list includes:
Eleven XI
Vinoteca Poscol 4.7 miles – Sunday roast suckling pig
Kata Robata (I can use bus 18)
Provisions (I can use bus 18)
Benjy’s (Rice Village) -- hotel transport can take me
Reef 2600 Travis @ McGowen
Hugo’s (Mexican)
Cloud 10 Creamery – 3 miles away for dessert
Mi Luna (tapas and happy hour) *
Beaucoup Bar and Grill (2 miles) crawfish bread
Batenga – Sunday supper suckling pig - take light rail
Brennan’s 777 happy hour
Sparrow Bar
Del Frisco – steak special
Line and Lariat – too far unless I take the light rail

At the top of the list right now are Provisions, Kata Robata and Benjy's. What do you think? What should I add as my 4th choice?

Thanks for the help!
