Canopy is at a place on Montrose Boulevard that has had tons of restaurants come and go. I best remember the Quilted Toque, a Monica Pope restaurant. Monica now has t’afia where we once went and should try again. Several years ago it seemed noisy and too cool for us. Canopy is run by Claire Smith, another prominent Houston chef, who began the Daily Review, another place we’ve eaten recently. But back to Canopy. We scored a nice table outside, completely shaded by the umbrella, and right on the corner. We got the burger, the tuna sandwich with an interesting carrot-ginger soup; Dave got the breakfast pizza, and I got grilled chicken on lentils and barley. Apparently mine was actually diet food. I got it for the lentils. It wasn’t until I was done that I realized that what the whole thing needed was about a quarter cup of a good olive oil. The iced tea was great. Houston has tons of these places with nice tables outside, food that is good, but not great. Tasty, but not aromatic. I’ll go for the chapulines tacos at Hugo’s any time. Crunch, aroma, taste, even heat.
