Montrose was one of the city’s first grand neighborhoods. But it’s also long been accessible to nearly everyone, a place where mansions stand on tree-lined streets next to modest dwellings and multi-unit townhomes.
During the 1960s and 1970s, Montrose became a center for the burgeoning counterculture movement, featuring street musicians, artists studios, and second-hand shops, helping shape the neighborhood’s culture today.
Throughout the years, the main commercial corridor of the neighborhood, Westheimer Road, has been the central street for residents to shop, dine, and drink. Today, world class restaurants can be found next to tattoo shops and art galleries, a unique mix not found anywhere else in the city.
Our Montrose Dine Around combines a cultural, historical, and architectural tour with a progressive meal, held at four critically acclaimed local restaurants. The neighborhood has been a mecca for culinary diversity where indigenous cuisine mixes with more progressive fare, while authentic ethnic enclaves continue to grow in number. Restaurants and menus are subject to change.
On the Montrose Dine Around, you may enjoy the following cuisine:
