Eunice is named after chef Drake Leonard’s South Louisiana hometown. He relies on the regional flavors of Louisiana for inspiration and the result is a modern Cajun-Creole brasserie-style menu that locals are crazy about. The offerings change seasonally and blend in European influences with the ingredients and foodways of the Gulf Coast and it is arguably some of the best seafood in Houston. Menu items include a full raw bar featuring Royal Red Shrimp, Blue Crab and oysters from the coasts of Louisiana and Texas. There are also delicious entrees like the Gumbo and Texas Redfish.

This Downtown seafood favorite had to close after Hurricane Harvey but fortunately it has made a triumphant comeback! This restaurant offers fresh seafood and Mexican soul cuisine that infuses every dish with fresh and traditional flavors. They also have a lively bar that serves exceptional signature cocktails.
