Chef Jonathan “Jonny” Rhodes takes diners through a cultural and historical exploration of soul food at his north Houston restaurant, Indigo. An Oxheart alum, Rhodes offers a diners the choice of two five-course tasting menus – one omnivore and one herbivore – that include dishes like braised collard greens with vegetable ham, and smoked pastrami with brown mustard and beets cooked in sorghum.
The dining room seats 13 in a u-shaped, concrete table with blue seating, creating an intimate atmosphere where diners can have a communal dining experience. Currently, Indigo is a BYOB establishment but make sure to check the restaurant’s website before you go for wine varietal recommendations for each course.
Indigo is open from Wednesday to Saturday for two dinner seatings, one starting at 6 p.m. and the next at 8:45 p.m. Reservations are required and can be made online through the restaurant’s website.
