This charming neighborhood spot was launched by James Beard Award-winning chef Justin Yu and Bobby Heugel, Houston’s preeminent cocktail guru and bar entrepreneur. Located in The Heights, Squable serves up a menu of European fare with American influences using mainly local ingredients.
The restaurant is cozy and chic with large windows letting in tons of light that make the space feel open and inviting. Striking turquoise booths line the walls with small pendants lights and greenery sprinkled throughout the space. A large L-shaped bar allows patrons to order food while chatting up the knowledgeable bartenders.
Squable offers mainly “shareable” plates with only a handful of plates meant for just a single diner. Popular dishes include the meaty, marinated mussels on grilled bread with calico beans and the lush heirloom tomatoes with a tonnato sauce and breadcrumbs.
