Main Kitchen | Downtown Houston Restaurant

The chefs and craft bartenders of Main Kitchen Restaurant draw inspiration from the local flavors and ingredients of Houston and Texas to present American comfort food and handcrafted cocktails with a creative twist in Downtown Houston.

Experts in cuisine, cocktails, wine and coffee, our culinary artisans offer a food and drink experience that extends beyond our walls to our local community and culture – with interactive cooking and cocktail demonstrations, insights from Houston farmers and tastings with renowned winemakers. And the living room vibe that inspires guests to feel right at home? It is the essence of legendary Texas hospitality.

On February 1, 2016, JW Marriott Houston Downtown’s popular restaurant, Main Kitchen, embarked on a new culinary journey with the introduction of revamped menus that showcase Executive Chef Jelle Vandenbroucke’s classical European training and Houston Downtown’s famed culinary diversity.

A native of Belgium, Vandenbroucke joined the JW Marriott Houston Downtown’s culinary team as executive sous chef in October 2015 and was named executive chef in January 2016. Capitalizing on his vast international fine dining experience in numerous leading restaurants across Europe and the United States, Main Kitchen broadened its offerings with approachable yet classically modern dishes that are Houston- and globally-inspired and crafted with sustainable, seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients.
