Tired of going to the same restaurants over and over again? Check out Sandcastle Homes list of the top 10 hottest new restaurants in Houston to try this summer according to the Paper City Magazine, Eater Houston, and the Houston Chronicle.

1751 Sea and Bar If you are looking for some fantastic seafood, 1751 Sea and Bar is the place to visit. This location, which was formally known as Star Fish, underwent a renovation. From gumbo and etouffee to fresh oysters to poke, they have everything you could want!

Truth BBQ For all those BBQ lovers, this is the place to try out this summer! Truth BBQ, which made the “Top 50 Barbecue Joints” in the Texas Monthly, is serving food including spare ribs, 18-hour smoked brisket, tater tot casserole and even red velvet cake. Leonard Botello IV, owner and pit master, even competed on Food Network’s Chopped Grill Master last year.

Squabble Located in the north Heights, this new restaurant comes from the team who created Better Luck Tomorrow. This restaurant will feature American and European dishes with a bold Texas flavor! Some of the dishes will include pork neck schnitzel, smoked grouper, and Dutch pancake with honey and fresh cheese.

Taste Bar and Kitchen If you are looking for some upgraded comfort food, check out Taste Bar and Kitchen in Midtown. This restaurant has an outdoor patio, downstairs bar and dining room upstairs with a stage for live music. Their cocktail menu ranges from classic to artistic as well. As of right, they are only serving brunch and dinner, but plan to add lunch to the menu soon.

Killen’s TMXChef Ronnie Killen has opened up another killer restaurant, Killen’s TMX, which features his take on Tex-Mex. Some of the fantastic dishes include pecan-smoked short rib, chicharrones-style pork belly and moles. You definitely won’t regret coming here to eat.

VerdineFormally that was a vegan food truck has officially opened its permanent location in the Heights. Their menu includes all plant-based meals including gluten-free pasta, vegan tacos, quinoa grain bowls and even organic wines! Verdine is only currently open for lunch from 11am to 3pm daily.

  • "I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steven. From the owner Mike Salomon down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder." Neal Massey
  • "I purchased my house on 1/31/17. I have the Coronado plan. The process of adding upgrades was very easy. The closing went very smoothly. Mike was great to work with! Since the closing, I’ve had a few minor issues come up. I can’t say enough about Steven! He has always been extremely helpful and has fixed all of these minor issues or set me up with the person who can fix them. He is great!
    I love my home! I feel like I got a good value for the location. I look forward to enjoying my house in the years to come!" Kris Kieta
  • "We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house." Andres and Marcela
