Perched on the eastern edge of Memorial Park, The Classic is a light-filled, fresh-faced American bistro with a touch of retro charm and a comfortable, all-day menu.

Benjy Levit brings Houston a no-rush, no-fuss neighborhood spot that effortlessly pivots from daily coffee to date-night cachet, with beautiful, simple dishes done exceptionally well. The menu features the subtle flavors and techniques that have traveled across oceans and generations and the team’s own family tables—from chef Mike Potowski’s Lithuanian heritage to chef Maria Gonzalez’s healthy ingenuity—all rolled into one unabashedly American bill of goods, with a little something for everyone.
