Our first stop for Houston’s Restaurant Week is Voice. Undeniably the best new restaurant we have seen in years, this gem inside the Hotel Icon rolled out the red carpet for diners. The mushroom soup cappuccino is not to be missed. This decadent appetizer is served in a coffee cup and looks just like its namesake. The ingredients: crimini mushroom, truffle foam and porcini powder create a power-house of flavors so delectable, this could be the best soup I’ve ever had.
The roasted pork-loin is spot on and flavorful with a bourbon garlic sauce, granny smith apples and roasted corn. Other options are black grouper and clod steak.
The molten warm chocolate cake and strawberry rhubarb crisp end the night perfectly.
The portions are full sized. For the $35 fixed price, this dining experience is a great value. 220 Main 713-224-4266; www.voiceicon.com
