La Griglia

2002 W. Gray Houston, TX 77019 | River Oaks | 713-526-4700

Location Description:

Ownership under the Landry empire seems to have dulled the menu somewhat, but this is still a place to enjoy some fabulous Italian cuisine and to see and be seen. Try the shrimp and crab cheesecake appetizer, the gnocchi with vodka sauce, the braised short ribs and the spectacular homemade desserts. A gorgeous outdoor patio makes for an inviting place to sip a glass or two.
