At Tommy's Seafood, some of the best local musicians perform four nights a week. Pianist Matt Lemmler, originally from New Orleans (sorry, Big Easy, he's ours now), anchors what is a stellar lineup of live music. Trumpet player Dennis Dotson, saxophonist Warren Sneed, drummers Joel Fulgham and Sebastian Whittaker, guitarist Mike Wheeler and vocalist Pamela York all regularly perform at Tommy's Westheimer location. (There is a second ­Tommy's in Clear Lake that serves the same great food, but with a much less ambitious music schedule.) Not only are these virtuoso musicians, at Tommy's they have the freedom to jazz things up a bit. Quite a bit, actually. Some of Houston's best jazz happens at Tommy's. Our own Robb Walsh calls it "a perfect synergy of food and music," and we agree.
