So, my husband and I are traveling to Houston for the upcomnig weekend, a combination work/anniversary/visiting friends trip. We are having dinner with friends who recommended the following two restaurants: Mark's and RDG. Neither seem to fit the bill. Both have basic American /Steakhouse menus, the typical one duck, one steak, one salmon, with app of foie gras, etc. I would prefer something that has a more interesting menu....nothing French or American (although contemporary American with a twist is ok)....we love spanish/tapas, Japanese, Mexican, Vietnamese, etc.
We'd also love a great ambience, pretty venue/lighting upscale in feel or soemthing different, just nothing boring and stuffy. any price point ok, but not into $40 entrees of steak, duck, lamb and salmon. any help is greatly appreciated!
