New Restaurant Alert: Granger's Is a Welcome Addition to the Museum District

THE MUSEUM DISTRICT hasn't always been the easiest place to open and operate a restaurant, for some reason. But there's a Houston couple who seems to have gotten the hang of it — and today they unveil their newest concept on Binz St.


Ryan and Josephine Granger have opened Granger's, with classic but elevated American food a la steaks, seafood and bourbon-pecan pie. It combines neighborhood-diner vibes with polished finishes, a departure from the other more casual restaurants the Grangers run in the area — Bodegas Taco Shop and Fia's Pizzeria, along with a catering business, which are all under the umbrella of the Grangers' HTX Restaurant Group.

The new Granger's is huge, with 7,000 square feet, a centerpiece bar, and three private-dining rooms. The front patio will no doubt be packed once the mercury drops — though shade from the 100-year-old oak trees will help in the meantime! The whole setting is a lovely place to sample the extensive menu, with offerings like the indulgent Weekend in Wimberley salad with bourbon-glazed pears, pecans and bacon lardons; classic New England clam chowder with grilled-sourdough crostini; chicken-fried chicken with horseradish-whipped potatoes; dijon-crusted salmon and more. There's a whole section on the menu dedicated to steaks, and the $255 Baller Board comes with all three cuts and sides including green veggies plus Oscar sauce and merlot demiglaze. Yum.

Granger's is open for lunch, dinner and happy hour — great wine menu! — daily; a weekend brunch menu will follow shortly.
