State of Grace answers the age old question of what would happen if a hunting lodge and a Restoration Hardware came together to form a restaurant. Animal skulls? Check. Lots of dark wood, marble and brass light fixtures? You bet. But it’s the food that really makes this River Oaks restaurant stand out. There’s a lot of fresh fish, giant Gulf oysters, and hill country-style dishes like smoky beef ribs, duck carnitas, and cheese enchiladas. If you’re hungry between meals, grab a seat in the Oyster Room - their attractive bar is a good place to enjoy some wine from their extensive list and their $1 oyster Happy Hour, which happens Monday through Friday from 11am-6pm.
