    Eat outside if at all possible, so much quieter! But realize that means longer waits for drinks - but it's worth it :)

    I was craving steak and Mexican for my only meal in Houston, and the hanger steak was the perfect combo! Also, the deviled eggs with smoked salmon were delish!

    I had the Seared salmon filet, served with marinated kale & cauliflower, watercress, shaved fennel, white anchovy vinaigrette. Excited my taste buds. Tasty with just the right kind of kick.

    How stylish is their guacamole served in a green pepper? Get one for your table to wait for the mains.

    Always great seating with views of Discovery Green and DTH. The burger is near-perfect, as are the seasoned fries, as is the shrimp and crab salad, as are the desserts...

    Beware: restaurant is fine but don't leave your car with the valet. We got Into our car and everything was changed and upon leaving we saw the valet guys drag racing people's cars trough downtown.
