Underbelly is the story of Chef Chris Shepherd’s journey through Houston. Beneath the city’s surface—its underbelly, the things not seen—lies an endless array of the ingredients and cultures that shape Chris’ perspectives on food. Through his food, Chris asks his customers to experience not just Houston’s flavor, but its culture as well.
Our cocktails are like our food—clean, well-sourced and ever evolving.
Spirits director Westin Galleymore understands that our customers look forward to trying new dishes each time they visit. So he’s crafted the cocktail program in a way that will change regularly and challenge our guests, just like the food menu does.
We have a very specific approach to the wines we put on our list: the wineries must be family-owned and operated. Period.
Matthew Pridgen, our wine director, has always gravitated toward small, family-owned wineries since starting in the business more than 15 years ago. He feels strongly that it’s in our nature to enjoy things that are made by hand—similar to the philosophy Chris has with food.
