Restaurants near the Alley Theatre

I'm going to be around the theatre for a while, and was hoping Houston Hounds knew of great lunch/dinner/bar options within 1/2 mile or so of there. I'd describe myself as an omnivore and tippler.

  1. Samba Grille is new - haven't been there, but am intrigued by the reviews.
    Voice @ Hotel Icon - bar specials:
    BB's Cafe, Hubcap Grill

    Hubcap Grill
    1111 Prairie St, Houston, TX 77002

    1. Givrals for Vietnamese sandwiches
      Treebeards for Cajun
      Hubcap for burgers is world class
      Azuma is decent sushi, not great
      Hong kong diner is mom & pop American Chinese food but it's freshly made and they are very nice
      Do NOT go to aquarium
      Samba is getting some good early word but have not tried
      Birras is sad
      Mingalones is sad
      Voice is high end
      17 has yet another new chef so who knows
      Lancaster depends on chef. They have had good ones but 6 months is the max tenure. Nice room.
