Oaxacan food is the focus at Xochi, a restaurant that feels so breezy and chic, we often forget it’s in the lobby of a hotel downtown. The menu here is star-studded, but a toasted memela topped with tender pork rib and a tlayuda covered with hanger steak and mole negro are non-negotiable. Even though you could have a very important date here, Xochi keeps things relaxed with knowledgeable staff shaking margaritas tableside like they’ve got all the time in the world. And like its sister restaurant Hugo’s, Xochi also does a massive Sunday brunch buffet that Houstonians flock to every weekend.
