Chef Chris Shepherd is Houston’s first chef to win a James Beard Award in nearly 20 years. Shepherd’s food draws from Houston’s rich ethnic scene, which means sommelier Matthew Pridgen always has his work cut out for him. He always rises to the challenge, maintaining one of the city’s most eclectic and geeky lists. It’s also worth noting that Underbelly is connected to Hay Merchant, a very good beer bar.

Houston doesn't sell a lot of compelling keg wine, but Underbelly is a notable exception. They always get the good stuff on tap. Wine is also available for retail, so if you drink something you like, take a bottle home too.
