Swamplot Sponsor: The Durham House

The Durham House, 1200 Durham Dr., West End, Houston

Today’s Swamplot sponsor is The Durham House.

The Durham House debuted in late October, in the same porch-y building 2 blocks north of Washington Ave where 3 successive Louisiana-themed restaurants (Floyd’s Cajun Kitchen, the Mardi Gras Grill, and Woodrows Heights) previously served. With an all-new menu from veteran chef Don Schoenberg — focusing on local and Cajun cuisine as well as fare from bordering regions and beyond — and a major makeover, it’s now something entirely new. The interior of the 1,600-sq.-ft. space at 1200 Durham, which the proprietors say dates from the turn of the 20th Century, is lighter and brighter than before. Its whitewashed walls, corrugated tin accents, Edison bulbs over the bar, and white metal chairs all aim for a Southern, beachy ambience meant to jibe with the new culinary direction.

You can find out more details about the Durham House, find a link to a review or 2, and scan its food and drink menus on the restaurant’s website. And if you do get to enjoy a meal there, please let ’em know you heard about the place on Swamplot.
