Best New Restaurant 2017

Reader Pick

HG Sply Co.

HG Sply Co. is nestled above the Trinity River in the newer WestBend development. It takes full advantage of its primo viewpoint with walls of windows that look out onto the river and the 5,000-square-foot patio. A visit to the restaurant will urge you to hurry home and toss those processed foods housed in your pantry into the garbage. There is nothing on the primal menu that you couldn’t hunt or gather in nature, meaning dishes feature only unprocessed ingredients.

Staff Pick


With a city obsessed with who serves the best burgers or tacos, it was refreshing when Bentley’s opened its doors. The tricked-out gourmet hot dogs served here are stellar. The menu also includes made-to-order crepes and single-origin coffee.
