Here are the top 100 restaurants in Houston right now

HOUSTON, Texas -- "What's your favorite restaurant?" That question, sometimes phrased as, "What's the best restaurant in Houston?" is the one CultureMap readers ask me most often.

For the entirety of my six years at CultureMap, I haven't had a comprehensive answer to that inquiry. Our Where to Eat Right Now series provides a monthly snapshot, the annual Best New Restaurants list provides more definitive rankings for a single year, and our annual Tastemakers Awards offers a perspective on the year in dining from restaurant industry leaders.

Consider this list - CultureMap's top 100 - a more thorough accounting of the current state of the dining scene. Or, to adopt the rubric of our headlines, the 100 best Houston restaurants right now.
