It's Just Good jumpstarts appetites with a menu of hearty breakfast fare, served all day along with comfort fare gleaned from southern homestyle recipes. Washed down with cups of complimentary coffee, omelets envelop cheese and bacon, ham, or sausage next to sides of grits and toast, and stacks of pancakes soak up syrup faster than a tortoise can outrun a continental shift. The inimitable flavors of southern hospitality find their way into comfort fare classics such as pork chop sandwiches, fried catfish, and sweet-potato pie.

Q&A with Kimberly Taylor, Owner

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?

Our manager juggles on request.

Do you use any family recipes at your restaurant? Whose family do they belong to (the chef, the owner, or someone else)?

Our recipes have all been created in-house by some of the most prestigious chefs in Texas.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

The menu at Greenz is diverse. We offer gourmet salads with an emphasis on organic, gluten-free dynamic recipes. Each salad is paired with its own unique dressing to bring out the best flavors. All of our recipes are made in-house daily and we use the freshest ingredients available. Any salad can be made into a wrap or sandwich, and any of our homemade soups can be paired with a salad or sandwich if you're looking for several menu selections.

The Houston Chronicle’s Alison Cook is unabashed in her praise for Hubcab Grill’s signature burgers, which she claims are the best in all of Texas. It’s not difficult to see why. Owner Ricky Craig pours his heart and soul into each of his themed burgers, which he builds from never-frozen beef patties and homemade toasted buns. But that’s just the start. Some of Craig’s more unwieldy creations include a Greek burger piled with feta cheese and kalamata olives and the Cheeto burger, which he tops with cheese sauce and yes, crunchy Cheetos. These burgers alone would be worth a trip to Hubcap Grill or the newly opened Hubcap Grill & Beer Yard, but then there are the fries. Made with freshly cut potatoes, they’re fried twice, granting them with a crisp outer shell and a soft interior like a limousine on the sun.

A tiny island off the eastern shores of Spain, Ibiza lies at the intersection of Mediterranean cultures. This makes it an altogether proper namesake for Houston’s Ibiza, where chef Charles Clark has created a seasonal menu that reflects a confluence of Spanish, French, and Greek traditions. The Spanish influences are perhaps the most immediately noticeable, thanks to the wide variety of tapas customarily served before dinner. With offerings such as crispy pork belly, duck empanadas, and pan-fried oysters, it’s tempting to make these a main course in their own right. But then there’s the fish, which chef Clark has delivered twice daily and cooks in its own pan jus, and the lamb shank, which he braises for six full hours before serving. Thanks to the restaurant’s open kitchen, guests can stare unblinkingly at him and his team while they work.

Charivari head chef Johann Schuster draws on his roots in Romania and Germany to infuse a seasonal menu with flavors from across Europe, earning his fare a "very good to excellent" rating from Zagat as well as an inclusion in Best Chefs America. Servers pile white-clothed tables with appetizers such as buckwheat blinis and Russian caviar or Hungarian-style foie gras with brown-sugar-glazed apple slices. Main courses include veal and seafood drizzled in light wine sauces, or the house specialty schnitzel Charivari rolled with foie gras and served alongside cranberry sauce. In addition, chefs dry-age each filet mignon and rib-eye steak for 20 days to deepen the color, intensify the flavor, and render the meat tender enough for newbie steak knives to slice without embarrassing themselves.

The culinary wizards at CoCo’s Crepes & Coffee breathe life into a multifarious menu of European-style eats and drinks, crafting eponymous specialty crepes on an authentic French crepe stove before patrons' very eyes. Keep meddlesome MDs at bay with a curative apple-crisp smoothie ($3.30/small: $4.30/large) that blends scarlet teacher-pleasers with soy milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Hellenic staples hold the Med crepe ($6.25) together more deliciously than metal paper clips, treating teeth to oven-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, and olives. The sugar-laced crepe Suzette arrives at tables à la mode ($6.50) before hiking into mouth caves, sprinkling a trail of brown sugar, lemon juice, and homemade vanilla gelato across tongue buds to avoid getting lost. Sandwiches include the cream-cheese-gilded smoked-salmon panini ($6.95), and CoCo’s bean-based roster flaunts sips such as a whole-chocolate mocha ($2.95/small), made by fully intact chocolate rabbits.
