Brunch is serious business here in H-Town — and especially in Montrose. Long-awaited Emmaline has debuted its picturesque and eclectic trattoria-style café, where bubbles pair marvelously with selections from “The Market” — an interactive station featuring rotating meat and cheese pairings, grilled bar-style pizzas and fresh baked pastries.
Framed by Insta-worthy patios and featuring a stunning second-floor terrace, the relaxed garden theme continues throughout with walls of windows that bring the outdoors in and multiple seating areas that each have a distinctive, cozy feel. A Mediterranean-inspired menu from Dimitri Voutsinas takes guests from day to night.
Stunning new Emmaline is a completely reimagined buildout at the site of the former Teala’s. Described as American cuisine with European refinement, the restaurant boasts drool-worthy wallpaper and tilework, an open kitchen, impeccable patios and a gorgeous center bar, all with a cozy neighborhood feel.
Beautiful vintage plate ware, friendly service and a wine list featuring approximately 200 reasonably priced selections — curated by Governale himself — are among the special touches that make dining at Emmaline an absolute pleasure.
A longtime Houston hangout for alfresco margaritas is being reborn as a casually chic and neighborhood-centric destination for informal, all day dining, coffee catch-ups, cocktails on the patio and late night bites. The former Teala’s restaurant at 3210 W. Dallas – located in North Montrose on the border of River Oaks and steps from Buffalo Bayou Park – has debuted as Emmaline.
Diners can look forward to light starters like a carpaccio of sea scallops garnished with winter citrus and pink peppercorn or roasted beets with ricotta and hazelnuts. Mains include simple wood-grilled proteins, a pancetta-goat cheese frittata, and cioppino blanco with prawns, mussels, and clams in a broth spiked with tomato and fennel. Pastry chef Alyssa Dole, formerly of Cherry Pie Hospitality and Coltivare, will create enticing desserts like an espresso-dark chocolate torta and buttermilk panna cotta with buttermilk and blood orange.

The new concept, at 3210 W. Dallas, is described as an American restaurant with European influences and as an “outdoor-oriented, neighborhood-centric destination for informal, all day dining, coffee catch-ups, cocktails on the patio and late night bites,” according to a press release.
The neighborhood restaurant that operating partner Sam Governale and executive chef Dimitri Voutsinas have fashioned is a multi-faceted charmer – part bistro, part terrace lounge, part orangerie, part international bar. Taken together, Emmaline is a handsome, design-smart collection of environments each thoughtfully engineered to keep the varied populace of Houston diners entertained and well fed from posh lunch to buzzy dinner to wake-me-in-the-morning cocktails.
