Glass Wall

933 Studewood St

A new restaurant in the Heights? Yes. A competitor to Shade? Yes. Alcohol? Yes. Should you go? Yes.

Chef Lance Fegen used to cook at Zulu. Now, in this interior-modern, neighborhood-friendly exterior restaurant, he displays his simplified food talents. Think of T'afia and their deconstructed food and combine it with strong flavors and you'll get an idea about what to expect.

I had the flavorful slab of beef. Nothing super-complicated, but seasoned and pefectly cooked so that it tasted like a more expensive piece of meat. The food is good here. The wine list is impressive, if a bit expensive.

But what do I remember? The dessert. Try the rasberry/white chocolate bread pudding. This slice of goodness has the texture of pudding, the density of bread, and tastes like heaven. Combine it with the dark caramel jus that comes in the sake container, and you'll feel like you're eating a part of heaven's cloud smothered in the naughty goodness of the devil's elixer.

Hi there -

This probably isn't the place for this comment, but I couldn't find an email link so it will do.

Just wanted to say that I really appreciate your blog and find it very useful. I just found it the other day, and skimmed through your posts - the reviews are very helpful. It is especially nice to find reviews about some more obscure places in China Town, as those seem a bit hard to come by.

I am, I guess you could say, a developing foodie on a budget (I'm an undergrad at Rice), so I welcome the opportunity to find great food for cheap prices, and love the priceless hole in the wall finds!

Superb restaurant. I had the black sea bass and it was some of the best fish I have had. Service great. They change the menu monthly and I plan to try out July's offerings next week.

Wine list expensive? These are some of the most competitive prices this side of Ibiza. My wife and I go out to eat all over Houston and haven't been able to beat Glass Wall's wine prices yet. Turnbull Cab $65! Altimura Cab $105! Shea Estate Pinot Noir $65! and inexpensive Chilean, Argentinian, New Zealand. That's our two cents. - Todd and Mary Sullivan

Thanks for the comments... Really didn't think anyone knew about this website since it's not linked anywhere...

About the wine... That Turnbull price is veryyy good. Maybe I was fixated on a particular lower-end brand.

Foodie on a Budget, Houston is particularly adept at nurturing dining on the cheap. I'll do a little list of cheap eats at some point

Love this site. Just went to Glass Wall.

Food was FANTASTIC!!! Peripheral service was great - main service sucked but I think it was just our particular waiter. She seemed overwhelmed with all her tables. We told the manager that and he seemed to not really care.

But...we're going to try it again because the food was so great.
