Description: Born out of a shared vision to bring affordable farm-to-table dining to Houston, restaurateur Ray Salti and Executive Chef Soren Pedersen have collaborated to create Sorrel Urban Bistro, a casually elegant, fresh design featuring an ever-changing blackboard menu of organically focused cuisine. Sorrel represents the second culinary collaboration between Salti and Pedersen, who also are partners at Ray’s Grill, a highly-lauded farm-to-table concept in Fulshear, TX, 20 miles West of Houston. In addition to a diverse daily menu selection featuring local organically grown produce and meat, sustainable fish and wild game, Sorrel offers a charcuterie bar with a wide variety of salami, sausages and prosciutto, both imported and housemade, along with artisan Texas cheeses, handcrafted breads and more. Beverage service includes seasonally inspired cocktails, artisanal beers and 200 plus wines (25 percent organic.) At Sorrel, it's about enjoying a culinary experience.

“Lovely place to meet an old friend for brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

I met an old friend for brunch and we both ate very simply. One entree each and shared the bread pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I ordered the chicken pot pie and I can honestly say I have never had so many wonderful tastes bursting through a chicken pot pie. At first, when we were served I thought this would not be enough, but it was and we had the most wonderful server named Wes S. Thanks, Wes!

“Glad we tried it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went on a Saturday late afternoon, before the dinner rush and it was perfect.... From the service to the innovative cocktails and of course the food! You must try the mussels in curry with golden raisins.... Divine ! Will definitely be our first stop on our next trip to Houston .

“Hulihanmaegan Houston Local Dishes Over Sorrel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Sorrel is hulihanmaegan's absolutely favorite place to take a special group for a night of great fare and drinks! The service is the perfect compliment to the wonderful atmosphere that brings all of your senses to the table! Hulihanmaegan has lived in the Houston area for many years and loves when a urban restaurant brings Hosuton into the foody world!
