Ready for a puzzle?
My in-laws are in their 80's, and we're trying to pick a restaurant for a special birthday dinner We're a party of 12 - 16 adults, most not terribly adventurous eaters, several wine lovers, steak and or seafood, private room to keep the background noise down, approximately $80 pp before drinks, tip and tax. Our last one was at Brennan's, and it was perfect...at $130 per person, all inclusive.
They're native Houstonians, so we'd like it to be something special, specific to Houston/Gulf Coast. We considered Brenner's (in spite of the Landry's link), but their room minimum is $2800 before tip and tax, not unlike Capital Grille's at $2500. We looked into Rainbow Lodge, but they are moving between now and December, and we're just not sure what to expect at the new location. We are considering Lynn's or Ruth's Chris, but would welcome any other suggestions.
We'll be traveling from Katy, The Woodlands, West U, Alief, Westbury, Sugar Land...and Orlando, so we're pretty flexible about the location.
