Graces was our go to spot with family and/or friends. We loved everything on the menu and the homey feel. The clientele has changed since the first couple of years it's been opened. What seemed to be more of a brisk neighborhood clientele has fallen...More

Enjoyed lovely lunch at Grace's. Thrilled to see good ole Southern dishes, with a twist. I enjoyed Dressing Stuffed Chicken with green beans and (lightly) candied sweet potatoes. I found the green beans to be too salty for my taste. My husband said his Seafood...More

Well, my doctor would probably suggest chicken without the skin but, oh boy, however it was seasoned was out of this world. Very moist chicken breast as well. Excellent, prompt but not intrusive service.

Nice location but the food wasn't that good. It's nice but you can find better. The kale salad is good.

We had a nice lunch with a bowl of gumbo, a tuna tower salad, and a side of brussel sprouts. All three items were very good and we plan to order them all again.

This was our second lunch visit & it was again excellent. Friendly greeting upon arrival, very attentive service, and great upscale comfort food. My tortilla soup and stuffed pork chop with grilled brussel sprouts were outstanding. And the plain carrot cake with accompanying warm cream...More

Inside is new and nice but hard to have a table conversation over the noise of the other guests. Food was good for each of our party of four. Wait staff and front greeters were very nice. Monday night and the A/C was very cold,...More

Description
Welcome to Grace's! This restaurant is dedicated to my late grandmother, Grace Mandola. My grandmother was a strong, amazing woman who worked well into her nineties. She was also a lady who lived for her family. Grace was the best cook that I have ever known, and I have been fortunate enough to have met a lot of great chefs, but my grandmother was magical in the kitchen. Her Sunday lunches were over the top. She would bake bread on Saturdays and start her tomato sauce, "Suga," in the wee hours of the morning. This sauce would have tons of braised meats, meatballs, and just the right amount of basil. She would also have baked eggplant, stuffed artichokes, a good green salad, and to top it all off, she always had a pork roast or fried chicken. After describing the Sunday meal, you can see that she was 100% Sicilian, but when you add the roast and the fried chicken, you can also see that she was proud to be an American. Not only was she great with Italian food, she was also very good with American food. And guess what? She was raised by Sicilian immigrants that happened to settle in Louisianaa€¦. the best of three worlds, Italian, American, and Louisiana. Ha! If it wasn't for Grace, we Houstonians would have never had the opportunity to have eaten at restaurants like Nino's, Vincent's, Tony Mandola's, Damian's, or Carrabba's. My grandmother taught all of her family about good food, but more importantly, she instilled hospitality and something even more than that, she taught us to cook from the heart. Cooking from the heart is always the most important ingredient. I hope that you enjoy Grace's, Johnny Carrabba P.S. I could never thank her enough!
