The park in this region is very nice to sit and have lunch. Also Hearsay Gastropub and La Carafe are around the corner which are very nice restaurants with a lot of history.

Do not leave without visiting La Garafe, the oldest bar in town. Old house where Sam Houston lived, on the second floor.

Once fallen into disrepair, it's now being gentrified by the addition of various restaurants and nightlife venues. Walking distance from other areas of town including the ball park and bayou. Try Spaghetti warehouse on the bayou near UHD.

The renovation in this area is long over due in this part of downtown. It adds a nice historic yet modern touch to area that sits just off the downtowns theatre/music/arts district. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from upscale to Greek comfort food.

But don't count on parking anywhere close. What is it with parking snobs? If you want people to come, you must have places for them to park. That don't cost a monthly mortgage payment.
