This is a list of restaurants which are comparatively near our host hotel, the Hyatt Regency Downtown, as 1200 Louisiana Street.
For a list of LGBTQ friendly restaurants and bars, see the LGBTQ Nightlife page. (Note that the places on that page are not near the hotel, and are not walkable.)
Please note that due to COVID-19 shelter in place restrictions, we have not been able to verify which of these establishments will be open during our event.
Some restaurants currently show as closed on their websites, with pending reopening announcements once the shelter in place orders have been lifted.
Restaurants more than a couple of blocks away may be too far for walking in typical Houston July weather. Note that driving or using a taxi, Uber, or Lyft ride may be more appropriate methods of transit to those locations.
All distances shown were derived from Google Maps using “walking” as the mode of transportation. Please verify distances and routes using your preferred map/navigation app before setting out from the hotel!
Looking for gluten-free/celiac-friendly options?
We’ve configured a search page for you at Find Me Gluten Free., sorted by distance from the hotel’s location.
Please note that this is a crowdsourced information site, and reading the ratings (where available) and/or personally verifying the information for each restaurant is highly advisable.
Looking for vegan/vegetarian options?
We’ve configured a search page for you at Happy Cow, sorted by distance from the hotel’s website.
Please note that not every restaurant listed is vegan, and some restaurants are listed simply because they have one or more vegan or vegetarian menu options. We strongly suggest you verify the menu before setting out.
