Near University of Houston

Hoping I can get some recommendations for the area around Univeristy of Houston for dinner. Fine dining or high end casual. Ideally no more than a 10 minute cab ride. All cuisines welcome. Thanks!

  1. Your best bet is Downtown. How about these: Vic and Anthony's for steaks, Original Ninfa's on Navigation for fajitas, or Huynh for vietnamese.

    Original Ninfa's on Navigation
    2704 Navigation Blvd, Houston, TX 77003

    912 St Emanuel, Houston, TX 77003

    1. Midtown is within a 10 minute taxi ride, barring rush hour. Check out T'afia or Julia's Bistro. Both are on the same block. After dinner, you could slip into the Continental Club for some live music, if it you so wished.

      Julia's Bistro
      3722 Main St, Houston, TX 77002

      T'afia Restaurant
      3701 Travis St, Houston, TX 77002

      1. Thanks for the quick responses, will check into those suggested. Other ideas are welcome. Thanks.

        1. Definitely midtown. Try out the acclaimed Reef or Ibiza, two of our favorites.
