Galveston visitors who are looking for an upscale atmosphere but want a change from the typical destinations of Rudy and Paco’s or Gaido’s have a new dining option. Number 13 Prime Steak and Seafood opened this month with a promise to serve high-end steak, top-notch seafood and hand-crafted cocktails.

Located in a two-story building in the Pelican Rest Marina, Number 13 features waterfront views from both inside the dining room. The Terrace provides a more casual setting for diners who are arriving fresh off the beach or boat.

“At Number 13, we believe in creating an atmosphere that is both elegant and relaxed,” Eric Nelson, vice president of culinary operations, said in a statement. “We’ve thought about every detail that will make dining with us an unforgettable experience.”

Hanin is utilizing local/regional ingredients and purchasing from local purveyors.

Turning to the menu, chef Jason Hanin blends steakhouse classics like shrimp cocktail and a wedge salad with seasonal items like a crudo of the day and a rotating selection of housemade charcuterie. Hanin is utilizing local/regional ingredients and purchasing from local purveyors.

“Using fresh, local ingredients is important to us and it won’t be uncommon to see some dishes change with the season based on what’s available,” Hanin said.

The steakhouse revival that’s seen The Palm perform a ground-up, $5 million renovation and Tony Vallone re-launch Vallone’s has come to the island. But even with the arrival of a fine dining restaurant, fear not, Shrimp N Stuff isn’t going anywhere.

Number 13 is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday. Brunch will follow on Sundays in a few weeks.
