Chef Adam West comes to Houston by way of Dallas hot spot Dragonfly. As Hotel Zaza works to amp up the vibe of Houston’s sleepily elegant museum district, the Monarch Restaurant & Lounge menu experienced a renovation, courtesy of West’s young blood and bright ideas. West focuses on New American cuisine that spans from poolside sliders to foie gras, and he pairs scallops with butternut squash, baby beets, and swiss chard for a plate with a broad range of colors, textures, and flavors. This menu appeals to the Monarch crowd—the young, vibrant, and beautiful. It’s easy to forget that this darkly lit restaurant belongs to a hotel.
