2011 Houston Rising Star Chef David Grossman brings his New York aesthetic to a sleek yet homey Texas-style tavern. Branch Water Tavern’s menu is New American with character and bravado. Dishes like Chicken Fried Oysters are perfectly executed and plated with an artistry that surpasses anything chicken-fried we’ve seen. Grossman cleverly tenderizes Cervena venison leg by removing the tendons and cooking it sous vide, transforming the tough cut and making it approachable, and he brings such heightened techniques to every dish, all the while keeping his food honest and all-American.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Roasted Cervena Venison, Sweet Potato-Brussels Sprout Hash, Bacon Confit, and Pomegranate Jus
  • Chicken Fried Oysters, Celery Root Slaw with Buttermilk Dressing, Frank's Red Hot Sauce, and Celery Greens
