I got an enthusiastic text from my dear friend and Houston-native, Brooke. Brooke is the classiest person I know. She always has the perfect outfit, gift, witty comment, you name it. So when she said "you have to blog about Tiny's No. 5", I, of course, took note.
She and I are both huge fans of Thompson + Hanson and its wonderful cafe, Tiny Boxwoods. Tiny's No. 5 is its sister location in West University and it has all the chic elements of the original.
You can count on the same great food - think morning quinoa or chicken and biscuits for breakfast, smoked salmon tacos for lunch, and tuna tartare or hatch green chili stew for dinner - but there are a few elements here that give it a real neighborhood feel.
To encourage diners to walk or ride their bike to the restaurant, they offer a fleet of bicycles that can be checked out to ride home or if you've had one too many white wine mojitos, you can also bum a ride home in Tiny's No. 5's electric car, GEM. Sweet, huh?
