Anniversiary in Houston
Hi! My husband and I are looking for a great place to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversiary in the Houston/Clear Lake/Galveston area. A few notes:
- We are not huge foodies, basically we don't do the whole "fancy" food thing. We like menu items we can pronounce and that aren't super exotic. Call us sheltered, but that's just us. :)
- Price isn't a major issue
- We don't need a fancy wine list
- We like good food and good service in a great atmosphere.
Well, any suggestions? All food types encouraged except for Chinese or Sushi. Thanks!
Assuming you aren't looking for a chain type restaurant I would say Brennans could be different. It is pricey but the food is really good gulf coast/creole style. Maybe Churrascos on Westheimer(either location).
Rudy and Pacos in Galveston is pretty good.
While I like both of the first 2 restaurants (Da Marco's and Hugo's) and would recommend them to most anyone, I think they are the type of restaurant the OP is trying to avoid. The menus are riddled with ingredients that turn-on foodies but can intimidate those who are not.
I would second the Brennan's recommnedation. I would also throw in Backstreet Cafe.
May I suggest Pappadeaux's steak and seafood restaurant. Some of the best in creole/cajun cookery. A little pricey, but worth it. There are several locations in the Houston area as well as Galveston/Kemah, The Woodlands, and Katy. Happy Anniversary.
