Houston- Coming down from NYC. Your advice please!

plumtart | Dec 11, 2008 01:34 PM

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,
best burger,
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!
Thank you
