Houston Steak House
We will be celebrating a birthday. Pappas Steak House,Del Fresco,other suggestions???????????
The last truly great steak my husband and I had was at the Steamboat House. I had the NY Strip and he had the Ribeye. Perfectly cooked, everything was great, lovely dining room, gorgeous bar, not part of a chain, not crowded so you could have a conversation without having to hear your neighbor's, and the service was exactly as it should have been - attentive, but not obtrusive.
I think Vic & Anthony's and Del Frisco's are both great options for a special occasion. The filet I had at Del Frisco's was the best I've had in Houston, and they cooked it to a true medium rare (bonus!). I can't speak as well to the true steak experience at Vic & Anthony's, because there I had a filet with foie gras and port peppercorn sauce -- absolutely amazing, but not a pure steak experience.
Brenners on the Bayou - great atmosphere and great food - unfortunately also Fertitta owned, but not as made for the masses as V&A. Otherwise Pappas.,
