Osso Buco in Houston and Dallas?

I'm celebrating my birthday in both cities, and I'm craving osso buco. Any recommendations for a restaurant that serves excellent osso buco?

  1. Prego's in Rice Village often has a very good Osso Buco during the winter months.

    1. I've eaten once at Alessio's in Dallas and really enjoyed it. Here's a picture of their osso buco.

      1. Actually I would say one of the best is not in Dallas proper but rather Plano It depends on how you like your osso bucco, they serve the entire shank style with demi etc.

          I really liked Paparazzi, but last time I went by, there were bolted shut with a notice of foreclosure. Bummer as I really liked their food.

              Yep I went by there last night to see if indeed it look like there had been any activity. It's really to bad after he moved his family down here to help him out. I guess it was just to big a load on the place. I am wondering if Sandman catering has survived or if it's gone as well.

        2. I saw a good looking Osso Buco at Ninos last week.
          Pregos is one of the most underrated restaurants in town.

          1. Wow, I'm always in Rice Village and I've never took notice to Prego's. I'll be sure to notice it next time.

            Irodguy: Thanks -- I actually am from the north Dallas area so Plano is a perfect location

            Scagnetti: Thanks for the picture; my mouth is already watering
