Mixing all these ingredients is so exciting for Houston’s wonder-Chef Bruce Molzan and his partner Neera Patidar!
The concept and food at Ruggles Black is modern and fun: a fusion pushing Indian, Asian, and American flavors to whole new boundaries in terms of taste, but keeping it accessible in terms of price.

Ruggles Black is THE place to be for conscious eating foodies, as Bruce “The King of Paleo” cooks his amazingly delicious treats with local ingredients from farmers, while embracing the Paleo principles.

***PLEASE BE AWARE THAT FROM 3PM - 5PM DAILY MENU OPTIONS WILL ONLY INCLUDE PIZZA AND SALADS.***

Being on keto diet, we always love coming to RB. I did book this reservation and put that we were celebrating a birthday. We ordered 3 different desserts, and not one had a candle. I was a bit disappointed, but it will not keep me form returning.

Ruggles Black never disappoint. The food is delicious, and the ambiance is lively but still intimate. It is so keto friendly, and the desserts are to die for.

Fun place for great service, delicious food beautifully presented, and happy customers. Food is fresh and interesting and definitely not something one could fix at home. Worth going out for. Best in town.

Excellent food as always. Will definitely be back! It did get busy at the tail end of our visit but it was a Friday night so that’s expected.

We were outside right under a speaker and it was quite loud. Hard to chat w our friends. Inside was a bit dark for a dreary night....which is how we ended up outside. Overall, though, good food and service.

Huge variety guaranteed even the pickiest eaters or most restricted diets can find something on the menu! Ideal for groups so everyone can find something they will enjoy! Had regular, keto, paleo, gluten free options and everything we tried was delicious!

This was a business dinner and they sat us next to the bar and wine storage area. The wait staff had climb over our heads to reach wine. We asked to move tables in fear of being hit in the head.

I ordered pecan crusted fish dish. Was OK. Lacked the flavor I was craving.

I will give it another try-maybe it was an off night.

We FAV restaurant!! Incredible flavors and loved every bite- Brussel sprouts, chicken wings and Keto bread. Ordered the Pho, too but had to take home as we were so full! Looking forward to that next! Plus, our server was fantastic and friendly and so helpful with the menu as it was our first visit. Wish I could recall her name. We’ll be back for sure!

So exciting to see Keto friendly meals. You get what you pay for because the quality of food is amazing. The keto drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert leave you wanting for nothing. Well portioned and full of flavor. I enjoyed every bite and will definitely be going back for more Brussel sprouts and bread

Sat on patio by the fire feature under the twinkling lights. Food is consistently delicious and our waiter was the best. Will definitely keep going. Ate the poblano crab spaghetti squash pasta and the chicken enchiladas. Both were incredible.

no problems with the restaurant, as they did the best they could, but they refused my Open Table payment although i presented a printed copy of what i received from Open Table's web site. i am not sure if you at Open Table read this, but i will be writing you separately as there have been 2 mistakes in just 2 days by you.

If you are following a special diet or have allergies Ruggles Black makes tasty dishes that do not disappoint. The flavor profiles are always spot on. I don't really think they're following COVID regulations though, inside every table was FULL.

Nice restaurant but my crab spring rolls was cold inside with too much cream cheese mixed . Overall I will come back . It’s little bit or May be only with me so I let it go but if that things happen again than definitely I would change my opinion. Bathroom was also not clean may be because of raining.

Delicious, beautiful and fresh food. Large selection of appetizers that can actually make a light meal themselves. Try the short-rib tacos, the crab tower, and the crab spring rolls. Amazing variety in entrees--with true master chef design. Try the pistachio snapper, short rib biryani, or the shrimp pizza. Great service--attentive without being worrisome. Welcoming, friendly and fun atmosphere. Always a treat to eat here--the place I go after a hard day to refresh. Highly recommend.

I love this place! The ambiance is casual chic and the food is outstanding. I love that they put creativity and pizzaz into everything they do from drinks, to the apps and entrées and desserts! They have so many fun and delicious options for every palette and every eating style. Definitely a must in Houston.

Food was amazing... but it’s very unfortunate that they literally rob you on the mix drinks if you choose to order doubles! 1 Vodka double is $20. That’s ludicrous! Won’t go back.
