Houston/NASA for business-lots of questions!

I'm coming to Houston/NASA area for business from April 30-May 2nd.
Looking a few different places for business dinners so unfortunately no hole the wall, or grimey places.
I know it's Houston, but I'm coming with Japanese collegues who really want sushi one of the nights we are there. Any recs for a very authentic or even super trendy place with a good atmosphere would be appreciated.
I'd also be interested in a yummy bbq place or just place that shouldn't be missed.
One person I'm coming with mentioned a place called, "Taste of Texas." Worth visiting?
Finally, we are staying in the NASA/Johnson Space center area. I'm very willing to drive but if you do know of any close by places, that would be great too!!
Thanks in advance everyone!!!!

  1. Try the Topwater Grill in San Leon about a 20 minute drive south of NASA. It's in a shrimpboat marina on the bay. Really fresh seafood which you Japanese collegues should enjoy as well as a trully Gulf Coast experience.

    1. Hi hakusai-
      Could this work?
      The location is near JSC and they've quite a variety of things (and prices).

      1. Masa Sushi on the corner of NASA Parkway and Egret Bay/El Camino. I'm not sure how athentic it is but we like it. The atmosphere is good.
