I lived in Houston while my husband went to grad school at Rice and I taught at an outlying high school. We moved away many years ago and I've been reading about Robert Del Grande and Cafe Annie for years. I'd always wanted to go there, but I've been reading some recent posts and I'm not sure now. We're going over from San Antonio in early April and I'd love to find a good place. We love seafood and Italian food. I've looked at the Cafe Anne website and one for DeMarco...both looked good, but pricey. Where could I get the quintessential foodie experience without giving up my retirement? Don't get me wrong. I don't object to the price if it's worth it. We'll be in town for 2 nights. Are either of these places worth the expense?
