Christie’s Seafood & Steaks began in 1917 as a small food and drink stand on Galveston’s waterfront.
In 1934, patriarch Theodore Christie moved the restaurant to the Texas Medical Center where he sold up to 10,000 fish sandwiches a week! Now located on Westheimer Road in Houston, Christie’s Seafood & Steaks is considered to be the oldest family-owned restaurant in Houston.
Christie’s Seafood & Steaks is known for seafood dishes and guests enjoy original recipes from 1917 for seafood gumbo and remoulade sauce. Theodore’s daughter, Maria, shows food radio talk show host Cleverley Stone how to make an entrée from the Christie’s Seafood & Steaks Houston Restaurant Weeks menu:
Blackened Gulf shrimp topped with sautéed jumbo lump crabmeat with house wine butter and dirty rice.
Houston Restaurant Weeks takes place from August 1 through August 31, 2012.
Christie’s Seafood & Steaks will donate $3 from each Houston Restaurant Weeks lunch and $5 from each Houston Restaurant Weeks dinner sold to the Houston Food Bank.
Diners can make a $10 donation to the Houston Food Bank by texting HRW to 20222. (Message & data rates may apply and all purchases must be authorized by the account holder. See details at: www.HoustonRestaurantWeeks.com.)
