State of Grace is a gorgeous, light-filled spot in the Lamar-River Oaks Shopping Center. My first visit was a leisurely lunch with my mom to celebrate Mother's Day. Just a week later, I had to go back with a friend for a glass of champagne and the best french fries in Houston. That visit ended up being more of an entire menu tasting, topped off with their gluten-free brownie sundae (with toasted marshmallows!). State of Grace is all about fresh + simple ingredients, beautiful presentation, and a comfortable atmosphere that makes you want to sink in and stay awhile. A perfect place to uncork if you ask me!

In the words of Ford Fry, "Welcome to Texas in another time. Game hangs from the walls. An oyster bar moons into one dining room. Elegant lighting colors leather, brick, and wood. Stop by. Say hello. This is a place of business and banter, family and friends. A place where memories are made. Life is about having fun. Being with people you love. And eating good food."
If you haven't been, put it on your list! Sunday brunch, weekday lunch, happy hour, or dinner. Need some to join you? I'm in.
