The third incarnation of Américas, the global culinary experience from famed chef and restaurateur, Michael Cordúa, is now open in the heart of River Oaks. Partnered once again with celebrated architect and designer Jordan Mozer, who brought his outstanding talent and vision to the original Américas in 1993, Américas River Oaks will be a unique dining experience that represents the weaving of South, Central and North American cultures and cuisines—from Alaska to Chile. Cordúa, whose reputation as one of the leading proponents of authentic Latin cuisine, returns to his foundational roots and creates a stage to showcase the yummy foods that the Americas have given to the world. Continually blazing a trail of New World cuisine that keeps critics raving, FOOD & WINE recognized Cordúa as one of the pioneers of the modernization of Latin cuisine when naming him into the Hall of Fame: 50 Best New Chefs of all time in 2008.

"Our first time here, we had a great experience. Loved each dish we ordered from start to finish. Appreciated that there are many nice bottles of Malbec on the wine list in the $40 range. Our server (I think his name was Jesse) was fantastic. I was not a fan of the fabric treatments hanging from the ceiling lights (they look dated) but the good thing about them is they control the noise. It was nice to have a normal conversation without shouting."
