Eating

The dining scene is a mix of independent eateries and seafood chains from Landry's restaurant group. A cluster of the latter can be found at the waterfront Pier 21 complex off Harborside in the Strand District, while tucked back into the downtown streets are scores more small restaurants serving delicious food. This seaside city is heavy on the seafood, but classy enough to feature cuisine from across the country and around the world.
