Because of the coronavirus pandemic, most Houstonians are staying at home in an effort to socially distance themselves. For this reason, life’s important milestones, like birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations, have taken a backseat of sorts and are a little bit harder to celebrate these days. Fortunately, the city’s best restaurants have plenty of high-end takeout options that will make anyone feel special, even when enjoying their culinary delights from the comfort of their apartment home. Check out our top 3 picks!
Pappas Bros. Steakhouse – 1200 McKinney Street, Houston, Texas 77010
Everyone in Houston knows of the Pappas family of restaurants! There is Pappas Burgers, Pappas Delta Blues Smokehouse, and of course, Pappas Bros. Steakhouse. Pappas Bros. Steakhouse offers various cuts of USDA Prime, In-House Dry-Aged Beef. All of their steaks – whether it’d be filet mignon, ribeye, or New York strip – come seasoned with kosher salt, black pepper, and plenty of butter for the perfect sear. Sides are simple, but delicious and include au gratin potatoes, roasted wild mushrooms, creamed spinach, and so much more. There is also a selection of salads, soups, desserts, and seafood! And, if you hit Pappas at the right time, you might even get to take advantage of one of their prix fixe menus.
Uchi – 904 Westheimer Road, Suite A, Houston, Texas 77006
Right now, Houston’s favorite upscale sushi restaurant, Uchi, features a signature to-go dinner for two priced at 95-dollars, which makes for the perfect date night bargain. The menu includes scallop crudo, spicy crunchy tuna, a pint of dark chocolate sorbet, and even a bottle of pinot noir or sauvignon blanc. There’s also a vegetarian option that costs 75 bucks! If you rather go all out, as opposed to taking advantage of a bargain, look to Uchi’s to-go a la carte menu that boasts sushi, sashimi, and other small plates. Simple, fresh, and delicious, this Houston hotspot appeals to every palate and dietary preference.
Artisans Restaurant – 3201 Louisiana Street, Houston, TX 77006
