The Grove restaurant offers a new and exciting urban dining experience unlike anything else in downtown Houston. Ideally located on the South end of Houston’s new 11.8-acre urban park Discovery Green, the legendary Schiller Del Grande Restaurant Group’s latest offering is a one-of-a-kind setting for gatherings of all sizes and types. The Grove is the definitive see-and-be-seen culinary hotspot in Houston’s urban core and has redefined downtown dining since opening in January 2008.

SDG Partner and world renowned Chef Robert Del Grande,has crafted an exquisite American Rustic menu featuring a range of tantalizing appetizers, salads, seafood, rotisserie specialties, steaks, sandwiches, and decadent deserts. The cuisine alone is worth a trip downtown, and coupled with the warm aesthetic glow of the restaurant’s interior, “this place is poised, quite literally, to hit it out of the park,” as Houston Modern Luxury magazine rightly summed up in its review.

The 10,000 square-foot glass, wood, and steel restaurant was designed by celebrated architect Larry Speck, former Dean of Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin – with interiors by SDG Partner Candice Schiller – and seamlessly blends into the natural pleasures of the surrounding urban park. The Grove’s earthy elegance and cosmopolitan sophistication turned out to be a winning combination indeed, as the building and its environs continue to wow architectural experts and casual admirers alike. With its deference to climate, culture and landscape, The Grove is an attraction in and of itself.

The restaurant also happens to be among the most eco-friendly places in all of Houston. Not only is The Grove home to its very own second floor herb and tomato garden, but it also uses eco-friendly materials made from corn, sugarcane or coconut fiber; recycles all paper, cans, plastics, glass and cardboard within its walls; and sustains a compost pile from the unused produce on land near the park; and only utilizes compostable trash and kitchen bags.
