I'm looking for a private party room in Houston for about 25 guests, preferrably near downtown, midtown, or Montrose (or at least near the loop). The guests will be from New Orleans so I'm eliminating restaurants specializing in Creole, French, Louisiana style seafood, etc. that would likely be better in New Orleans, and I'm considering Mexican, barbecue, Southwestern, or ethnic food that may not be that available or, at least, of limited quality in New Orleans (there are plenty of good Vietnamese, Middle Eastern, Italian, and sushi/Japanese restaurants in New Orleans, however). At this point, I'm considering such places as the Sierra Grill, Redwood Grill, Pappasito's, Goode Co. (for catering at a private banquet facility), and a few others. I would also like to keep the total bill under $1,000, if possible. Does anyone have any suggestions or experiences they would like to share? Thanks.
