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!
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.
I'll throw in Antica Osteria. It's definitely at the higher end of the scale and perhaps some would consider it fancy, but it's simply really well prepared Italian food. It has a great atmosphere and service has always been excellent. Actually, my last anniversary dinner was here.
