Not much has changed at the “new” Houston’s in Bethesda, recently rechristened the Woodmont Grill but still owned by the parent company. There’s a glitzy new sign and a sleek granite bar, but regulars who wait for tables even on weeknights can rest easy—the fare is much the same.

What to get: Classics such as the grilled artichoke, spinach dip, grilled-chicken salad with peanut dressing, and hearty veggie burger are still reliable. New picks include a salad of pan-seared scallops with beets, a 22-ounce bone-in rib eye, and grilled loup de mer.
