Regional American (Contemporary Southern)
State of Grace is a coastal, South Texas neighborhood restaurant in the refurbished Lamar-River Oaks Shopping Center. Elegant but casual, its elevated comfort food by executive chef Bobby Matos is executed at the highest level in a welcoming, beautiful space. The jubilant medley of old favorites played with new spice, accent, and freshness lends itself to southern, American, Latin, Gulf Coast, German and Asian influences. Chef-owner Ford Fry’s first venture outside of Atlanta, State of Grace is located in the neighborhood where Ford grew up and nods to his childhood memories fused with Houston’s evolution into a melting pot of cultures and cuisines.

    Brunch was fantastic! Loved everything we had from the hush puppies & burata to the shrimp benedict to the gumbo. My wife, who is Cajun through and through, gave the gumbo very high marks which is an extra compliment!

    We were trying this restaurant by a friend’s recommendation. We were welcomed graciously, Layla was our very knowledgeable server. I was on a quest to try something new and I had octopus for an appetizer with the roasted duck and kimchi-collard greens. Everything tasted wonderfully and we would recommend this restaurant. We will definitely be back.

    We are in town from Houston for one night only and a local friend recommended State of Grace—it did NOT disappoint! The ambience was lovely but our server was absolutely DELIGHTFUL. She took what would have been a wonderful date night meal anyway (due to the delicious food and fun menu) and made the experience next level awesome! All of her suggestions and recommendations were on point and exactly what we wanted. The food and drinks were fantastic, and we had a full dining experience—cocktails, appetizers, mains and lots of sides, after dinner drinks—and we were still in and out in a timely fashion while also never feeling rushed. 10/10 recommend!

    As usual the staff was well trained and attentive. Our party of two both tried the swordfish with collard greens and spoonbread for the first time and found it to be excellent. State of Grace is known for it's great variety of clams. Several times in recent months I have found it difficult to get reservations at the restaurant at the times I wanted them. I highly recommend you plan ahead and reserve a space as soon as you can.

    My mom and I already started planning what we wanted to get the next time if that tells you anything! We absolutely loved it (oysters, butter lettuce salad, and enchilada) and our server, Haley, was absolutely wonderful. She had great recommendations, great energy, perfect service. And those ginger snap cookie sandwiches….. still thinking about them! 100/10 can’t wait to come back
