Best Pre-Theater Restaurant Houston 2013 - Perbacco



700 Milam

Houston, TX 77098


Map & Details>>

Perbacco is a magnet for the downtown lunch set. The place gets filled to the brim with Italian-seeking diners during the midday rush, but come dinnertime, it's the place to be for pre-theater-goers. Located conveniently across the street from Jones Hall, Perbacco is two blocks away from the Alley, two and a half blocks from the Wortham and about four blocks from the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Dinner is offered only on Thursdays through Saturdays, but seating starts at 5 p.m., leaving ample time for a leisurely meal before a typical 7 or 7:30 p.m. showing. Tables always book up early during the pre-theater rush. Reasonable prices (most dishes fall in the under-$20 range) and fresh Italian dishes — lasagna, vitello al marsala (veal in marsala) and gamberi al limone (shrimp with garlic-lemon sauce) — are a great way to begin any evening in the theater district.

Good call HP!  Except the owner is real p-o'd with me for leaving my mother there while I spent a lifetime trying to get my car.  But you know it's really his fault for running the place in an area where they lock the parking garage at night and you can't get help to recover your car for you.  But otherwise great call!
