Fan Gathering Restaurants

With thousands of out-of-town fans coming to Houston to root on their school to a national championship, suitcases won’t be the only thing these visitors will be bringing. Appetites of hungry fans will need to be satisfied, and what better place than Houston for a variety of different dining options. Much like the demarcated fan sections during the games, select Houston-area restaurants at the four Hospitality Zone areas (Downtown/Midtown, Galleria, Washington Avenue, Reliant Stadium) will be deemed the fan-gathering restaurant for one of the participating Final Four teams. Fans of each team are encouraged to gather to watch the game and grab a bite.
