Okay -- I know you don't have the time (or the money) to splurge on 5 star cuisine, but if you are having the killer Texas show of all time in Houston, you MUST experience Tony's on Sherman. It is easily one of the best restaurants in the world, yes, the world. Get the apricot souffle if they offer it -- impossible to describe in words and unforgettable.
I did not have the killer show of all time in Houston. A quick shower, dressing up and going out on Saturday night was not what I wanted to do either, but Mitch persuaded me after hearing one of my dearest friends in Dallas rave about the place for almost an hour before the show (they actually fly down just for dinner sometimes -- no kidding!).
That's all I've got from Houston. After offering impecable service and treating the senses of others all day at space #somethingerother, go have it reciprocated -- you will not mind the check when it arrives just after the silver strawberry tree...
