Hot new Houston restaurants (KTRK)

After the usual summer slowdown, Houston's restaurant scene has begun to heat up again. This month's list of new restaurants to try features three of the year's highest-profile openings in Aqui, A'Bouzy, and One Fifth Romance Languages.

Typically, I set the order in which I think diners should try the listed establishments, but all three are all equally compelling for different reasons. As for the rest of this month's crop, it includes two new options in The Woodlands, downtown's latest fine dining destination, and an upscale sushi restaurant that needs some tweaks.

At a time when most of the city's most intriguing new restaurants open in the Heights, this Southeast Asian restaurant from Paul Qui, the Austin-based Top Chef and James Beard Award winner, serves as a reminder that Montrose remains the city's premier dining neighborhood. With its double gable design, sleek, modern interior, and massive open kitchen, Aqui is one of the most attractive restaurants to open in recent memory.
