Winnie's

5-Course Texas Meets The Bayou Tasting Event

As of September 2021, Mid-Main has a new feelgood/eatgood restaurant. Winnie’s, which Texas Monthly named to its 2022 list of Best New Texas Restaurants, is a patio bar with a New Orleans vibe serving raw oysters, loaded po’ boys, bbq shrimp toast, gumbo, muffuletta, and lots more to tease the palate. Co-Executive Chef/Owner Chris Roy grew up in Baytown, the son of a Louisiana ex-pat and a Texas country boy. He graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Austin, got his first job at Brennan’s in Houston, where he learned the ins and outs of Creole cuisine, and was most recently at dear departed Bernadine’s. He has found a great new home in Winnie’s, which is housed in a vintage building that was originally a drug store, now with exposed wood ceilings, a lovingly rebuilt period storefront, and two huge new bay windows to let in more natural light and connect the space to the beautiful shaded patio. It sounds to us like just the getaway we need, and we hope to see you there!
