Tony's Restaurant

3755 Richmond Ave. Houston, TX 77046 | Greenway Plaza | 713-622-6778

Location Description:

For the quintessential dining experience with service (and prices) to match, there's only one place to go, and Tony's is it. The decor is elegant yet subdued, and the wine list is unparalleled, with many sold by the glass. Every day brings a list of specials influenced by whatever is freshest and in season. The regular seasonal menu at this Greenway Plaza mainstay is a food lover's delight, with dishes such as salmon carpaccio and main courses such as truffle-crusted snapper and Veal T-bone Fiorentina. Try the profiteroles and the flourless chocolate cake.
