“As a longtime Harlem resident, I believe the presence of mom-and-pop shops is vital to maintaining a sense of community in our neighborhood.

Tiny restaurants and intimate bars are trending in Houston

Intimate dining in Houston usually translates to romantic settings with soft lighting and plush décor. But a new wave of restaurants with very limited seating and specific service and menu offerings might become the new darlings.
