CHAPMAN Surely it was a garage in a past life,but the District 7 Grill in downtown Houston turns out to be a great lunch spot with charm. A gem in old downtown On the southeast side of downtown, hidden among a mixture of dilapidated houses, empty warehouses and newly built lofts, is a gem of a lunch spot, the District 7 Grill. The place radiates barbecue joint ambience while looking like it could have been a garage in a former life, complete with roll-up doors. A large smoking barbecue grill sits on the porch. Rough wood paneled walls line the main room and a Formica floor and wooden tables add a certain rustic charm. It even smells like a barbecue joint. But barbecue isn't on the menu. Instead, it's a simple, straightforward place to get a salad, sandwich or a bowl of pasta. Orders are taken at a brick counter from the basic menu or from the daily specials, which are on display up front. The menu has a section called "Bowls", which contains pasta dishes and salads. On a recent visit, the crusted chicken parmesan and linguine marinara ($8) arrived in a huge white pasta bowl. A serving of perfectly al dente linguine large enough for two was topped with a pleasant homemade marinara sauce and ribbons of fresh basil. More sauce would have been welcome considering the amount of pasta, but the crunchy- coated, oregano-infused parmesan chicken made up for it in flavor. The special of the day was a catfish sandwich ($8). The deep-fried, thick catfish fillet was tender and moist. Served on a honey-wheat bun slathered with a chunky homemade tartar sauce and topped with cilantro and cabbage, this sandwich really worked. Satisfying without being heavy, it's a good choice on a warm day The thick cut fries on the side were hearty and clearly homemade. District 7 Grill is known for its half- pound District Burger ($7). Big enough to share and served with the same chunky fries, it definitely satisfies. A smaller version (one-third pound) is available, as is a lower fat buffalo burger. For something a little lighter, try the spinach salad ($7). Baby spinach is topped with feta, pecans, raisins and a honey-tinged, garlicky balsamic vinaigrette. A wedge of crusty, parmesan focaccia comes with it. For an extra dollar, you can add either crusted pork or grilled chicken. I chose the chicken, which was hot off the grill, and full of the i smoky, rosemary goodness. If you aren't low-carbing, you can also order the spinach salad with penne pasta. It's all served together in one large bowl. 1 wanted to try this, but a communications mix-up resulted in my pasta being served in a separate bowl. It was a fortuitous mistake, however, as the penne was tossed with olive oil, a hint of marinara sauce and caramelized onions. Delicious. District 7 Grill is very laid back. Drinks are self-serve, and silverware is on the table. Waiters, clad in T-shirts, serve meals and check on customers from time to time. Don't forget about dessert. District 7 offers cakes made by the same folks who create those delicious Empire Cafe treats. A slice of the decadent carrot cake ($4) made with pineapple and walnuts and coated in rich cream cheese frosting is more than enough for two people. Brownies and other goodies are also available. District 7 is family owned and operated, and the staff couldn't be friendlier. While the place does have a certain rustic atmosphere, the ambience includes added little touches like flowers in the corners and French art prints on the walls. Black and white photos of early Houston add historical interest. An old live-oak tree shades the restaurant. A large deck outside has plenty of tables, as well as the two inside rooms. The deck is surprisingly cool and breezy, even on warm summer days, and it boasts a great view of the downtown skyline. District 7 Grill is a pleasant spot for lunch in the middle of old Chinatown. The service is quick, the food is good, and the staff is friendly. It's hard to go wrong at District 7 Grill.
