San Francisco Chowhound will be in Houston (first time!) for a convention at the Doubletree Downtown (400 Dallas St.).
I imagine I will be spending most of my time at the hotel, and would love to learn of great food if not nearby, then within a reasonable cab (or bus?) ride away.
I'm not a meat eater, so please steer me (oops!) toward seafood, Latin, Mediterranean, etc. I tend to enjoy smaller places, whether simple or stylish.
(I understand the hotel has a restaurant called Trofi. Anyone know how good/bad it is?)
