El Big Bad is a feisty, gastro-cantina specializing in infused tequilas, fresh juice margaritas and fresh Mexican fare. It offers a fun and delicious urban dining experience unlike anything else in downtown Houston. Ideally located in the Market Square area of Downtown Houston, El Big Bad offers a one-of-a-kind drinking and dining experience for gatherings of all sizes and types. Open since December 2013.

Texas de Brazil is carving out a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas. Treat yourself to our 50-60 item gourmet salad area including appetizers, fresh vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As your dining experience continues, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink or steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance that is Texas de Brazil.

"Every spit of meat that came out was way, way, way undercooked, and was way, way way too salty. It is NOT required to crust the salt on the chucks of meat, and they CAN stay on the first for more than three seconds. The amount of blood on my plate was worse than most horror movies!"

Garlic rules at this world famous North Beach restaurant where dining is an experience for all the senses. Charming private dining areas with unique decor: hanging Chianti bottles, glowing candles, cozy booths and chandeliers. Tureens and sizzling skillets of seafood tantalize and thrill...follow your nose to The Stinking Rose!

501 Zingari is an exquisite Italian jewel nestled one block away from Union Square in the heart of San Francisco's Theatre District. Zingari moved into the neighborhood in 1995. Staying true to the meaning of its name Zingari, which means Gypsy, it features rustic and fresh dishes and cuisines from many different country side regions of Italy.<br /><br><br><br />In the lounge you will find live jazz from both local and traveling Jazz artists. Throughout the year you will find wine maker dinners that bring wine country to the restaurant, thus giving its patrons a chance to enjoy the best of the Bay Area, as well as Italy. Zingari continues to be a special place where people come to enjoy great food that is unpretentious, in an ambiance that is warm and exciting, with service that is friendly and professional, and music that keeps you a little longer than they had anticipated – experience you can toast to.Please keep visiting our web site for seasonal specials.
