Massa's Restaurant

1160 Smith St. Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-650-0837

Location Description:

Massa's is an elegant downtown seafood spot that, like so many of its fellow fish-centric places around these parts, maintains a healthy Cajun/Creole influence. Lobster bisque is a popular starter; a couple of steak selections and an array of quality seafood (including redfish topped with lump crab meat) round out the menu. Pastas are served, as well. Prices aren't cheap, but no regular menu item breaks the $30 mark. Though the atmosphere is semi-upscale, you should be fine in jeans. There's often live jazz on the weekends.
