Helen Greek Food and Wine is Houston’s first modern Greek restaurant. The city has featured Greek diners, Gyros, and traditional restaurants, but it’s not often that you find a modern Greek taverna outside of NYC or Greece itself. Helen Greek Food and Wine also boasts the second largest all-Greek wine menu in the country.
Situated in the heart of Rice Village, Helen Greek prepares its regional Greek favorites with fresh ingredients and Gulf Coast seafood. The revolutionary menu features authentic dishes which are updated seasonally like wood-grilled octopus, feta brined chicken, sfakia cheese pie and rosemary skewered snails. Diners can also find favorites like gyros, Greek salad, and lamb ribs. Chef William Wright works is at the helm, alongside Chef de Cuisine Nicu Dalman and Sommelier Molly Brown, to create one of Houston’s most exciting new concepts.
Whatever you do, don’t leave without trying Helen’s famous Texas pecan baklava sundae topped with chocolate cinnamon sauce.
- Chef William Wright named semi-finalist as Rising Staf Chef of the Year for James Beard Award (2017).
