The Best Lunch in Houston is at Marché at La Table

Astros baseball and doubles tennis played quietly over the bar on 46″ flat screen TVs, reminding diners of three things: this is casual, this is local, and this is undeniably European. Your server will be right with you. Enjoy. You’re about to have the best lunch in Houston. Carnivores will […]
