Claire Smith has been at the apex of the Houston food scene for more than 15 years. And while the atmosphere at her restaurant, Canopy, is casual and airy, with high ceilings and a clean color palate, a closer look will uncover a well-oiled machine of a restaurant. There is nothing Canopy doesn’t do: the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch every day. Smith and her staff cater; they bake their own breads and prepare their own pastry. The menu is well balanced, showcasing home cooking with pristine flavors and modern touches. Canopy is a restaurant where 10 finicky eaters could order exactly what they want and leave satisfied.
