Chef Justin Yu has a vision of Houston's future: His vegetable-centric cuisine may seem an affront to the meat-forward ethos that is Texas in the nation's mind's eye, but his commitment to what makes the Gulf Coast a uniquely wonderful place to eat is unparalleled. Working with local farms and purveyors, Chef Yu brings a sense of place to a city whose sense of self comes from all over the globe. He presents beautiful plates that turn simple ingredients (okra, eggplant, "trash fish") into uncommon luxuries. In the process, he is redefining what it means to eat well in Houston.
