Flora Mexican Kitchen
Flora, an upscale Mexican restaurant off Allen Parkway along Buffalo Bayou, has an unbeatable view of the bayou, and they also serve food. Inside, constellations of glitzy chandeliers reflect against floor-to-ceiling windows, while outside, long sticks of palo santo perfume the tree-enclosed patio. The food here won’t blow your mind. In fact, the food here is all pretty mediocre, but it will certainly blow your budget, especially at $26 for shrimp tacos or $20 for queso. Really, you’re here for the beautiful space, to watch the bayou float by (or things float by in the bayou), and to see and be seen.
