Among a bevy of Brennan’s family restaurants in Houston, Bistro Alex marries Latin flavors with Creole cuisine. Chef Juan Carlos Gonzalez comes to Houston by way of Puerto Rico, and he's at his best when drawing from traditional Puerto Rican street food and elevating it to the upscale hotel setting at Bistro Alex. Shrimp and Tasso Pinchos, the chef’s play on Puerto Rican kebabs, are paired with a spicy, Nola-style hot sauce butter, the heat of which dances with sweet, refreshing pineapple slaw.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Shrimp and Tasso Pinchos, Jicama Slaw, Pepper Gastrique, and Hot Sauce Beurre Blanc
  • Crispy Whole Red Snapper, Local Texas Citrus, Saffron Buttered Blue Crab, and Chimichurri Sauce
