Michael Cordúa of Churrascos, Américas and Amazón Grill restaurants has selected the Hobby Center as the site for his picture-perfect Artista. Located on the second level adjacent to the Grand Lobby, Artista offers a unique dining experience, magnificent views of the Houston downtown skyline and a beautiful terrace overlooking Tranquility Park. Artista is open for lunch and dinner and offers post-performance desserts, appetizers and spirits. Reservations are recommended.

Located in the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, Artista offers contemporary American cuisine that portrays culinary works of art. Its award-winning views of Tranquility Park and Houston's downtown skyline will take your breath away, whether you choose to dine outdoors on the terrace or inside amongst a theatrical ambience of high ceilings and glass walls.

The Churrasco and Tres Leches, staples of the Cordúa Restaurants, always delight patrons at Artista. However, allow yourself to indulge in the exceptional Paella or the decadent Delirio De Chocolate when visiting this beautiful restaurant located in the theater district.
