1st Date Restaurant Suggestions

I have a first date tomorrow night and he has given me the choice of restaurant. I would love to possibly go to a Greek restaurant in or around the zip code 77027. I really don't want anything too expensive because that's just not me but I do want something a bit intimate and maybe even a little fun. I am open to other cuisine suggestions and ideas.

Thanks for all your help!

    Please get back to us on where you finally went. And if there is a second date, I highly recommend Haven.

      AT ONE TIME Alexander the Great Greek on Alabama and Sage was a fantastic restaurant with some of Houston's best seafood. Have not been in years though. This would be first date worthy if still good.

        Sorry I'm no help on Greek & not expensive around the Galleria is tough. O'Porto wine bar on Richmond is fun with good food, but could ne loud for a 1st date. If you like a good sandwich, Jake's Philly Steaks on Chimney Rock near Westheimer is nice.

        Does anyone know if One's a Meal is still open/good? It might fit the bill.

          Another possibility a little bit further is Laurier Cafe on Richmond across from the Velvet Melvin.

            Laurier Cafe would be great for a date! I also like Haven, off of Kirby tucked back in there on Algerian Way. It's not far from your target.
