Lucille’s introduces new family style menu

Lucille’s introduces new family style menu

Since Owner and Executive Chef Chris Williams opened Lucille’s back in 2011, it’s been a foodie favorite in the Houston Museum District offering southern cuisine for local patrons and tourists. Lucille’s offers an array of southern food and recently debuted a new family style menu that promises to get the attention of more Houstonians looking for tasty and unique food.

I visited Lucille’s and tried the new menu, which still kept its southern inspired dishes, but added a few interesting twists.

The seating in the restaurant is intimate and gives you a nice relaxed atmosphere.

Texas Farms Quail, Collard Greens Kimchi, Serrano Cheddar Grits, and Sorghum Miso Drizzle

The Quail ranked #2 of my favorite dishes. But, I was amazed at how much I enjoyed the Collard Greens Kimchi.

Southern Hummus & Roots, Black Eyed Peas Hummus, Shaved Roots, and Cumin Vinaigrette

The Hummus scored #1 of my favorite dishes. I never loved black-eyed peas, but the way it was infused to make the Hummus, it made me love black-eyed peas all over again.

The cocktail menu impressed me with its variety.

The restaurant is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The restaurant offers brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can stop by or go online and make a reservation through the restaurant’s website. There’s free parking directly across the street from the restaurant.

Because of this new menu, I plan to visit Lucille’s again soon. Some of dishes I’ll try when I go back include the Chili Biscuits and Fried Green Tomatoes.

Until next time, love, peace and food.
