Winner of the best dish of the year 2011 (La Gazette) and best French restaurant in 2011 (Mirror), Le Cinquième Péché is a long time foodies favorite. Our Chef Benoit Lenglet serves unique dishes that are comforting and masterly executed.

Casa Rubia at Trinity Groves is the new modern tapas restaurant from Chef Omar Flores and Jonn Baudoin. Chef Omar's menu will spotlight seasonal ingredients taking classics, putting a spin on them and making them with his flair. Catalonia is a favorite area in Spain for Chef Omar so the menu utilizes a lot of seafood. Paellas is a signature dish at Casa Rubia which changes daily. A full Spanish wine list, nice selection of sherries and Spanish / South American beers compliment the tapas menu.

"The second time was not a charm. Visited this restaurant for the second time in a week. Service was slow, food was only OK, .... Nice room, but left feeling that the meal was mediocre and overpriced. Will not be back for round 3."

"Looking for a quiet place for a business lunch. Not too fancy or expensive, and quiet enough to talk. You'll think you are back in the 1980's, but if that's what you are looking for ....."

"Very good fish in a casual setting. Have eaten here several times and have not had a bad meal. Try the gumbo or any of the fish specials. Painfully noisy most evenings, and simply "Too noisy" at lunch. Go at odd hours (3:00pm?) and you'll have a great meal! Friendly staff."

Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill is reminiscent of a 1940’s Chicago style chophouse with a classy, relaxed and warm atmosphere featuring the finest wood grilled seafood and meats. Our well rounded menu represents the traditional American classics with an emphasis on Kenny’s specialty, New England style seafood. And, while you are waiting for your table in the dining room you can enjoy the energetic “goose bar” sipping on a Grey Goose™ martini poured from our signature frozen tap system or a great glass of wine.

"Overall, the quality of the food is not what we expected. Was much better the last time we ate here ~5 years ago. Burgers were over cooked and uninspired. (Many better options at Liberty, Angry Dog, Motor & Maple, Dee L's and any number of other places in town...). Salads didn't measure up to Houston's.... Lobster rolls no longer on the menu.... Service was friendly, but inept (Had to flag down server to request ketchup, and when it was finally brought to the table, she only brought a small dollop... certainly not enough for the 4 of us.). We won't be back."

"Nice room with a Texas Kitsch theme. Foods's OK. Try the fried chicken, brisket or tacos. Signature margarita is a show stopper. A fun place to take out of town visitors who think Texas is all about cowboy boots and belt buckles."
