Fodor's Expert Review benjy's in the village

$$ The Museum District, Rice University, and the Texas Medical Center Modern American

The self-designated "modern American cuisine" continues to evolve, but the cool factor and the quality remain the same at this Rice Village mainstay. Owners Benjy and Erica Levit deliver satisfying lunch, brunch, and dinner offerings, including warm pistachio-crusted goat-cheese cakes, seared sashimi-tuna pizza, and a standout grilled beef fillet with roasted-garlic mashed potatoes. If you're in the mood to stay late or arrive early, you can head upstairs to the lounge for beautiful people, generous-sized cocktails, and mid-century glam.
