Vic & Anthony's Steakhouse

1510 Texas St. Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-228-1111

Location Description:

Although owned by corporate giant Landry's, you'd be hard-pressed to tell inside this popular downtown steakhouse, where the ever-changing menu is headed up by Chef Carlos Rodriguez and his talented kitchen team. Vic & Anthony's is sumptuous and refined while still offering some surprises on its traditional, meat-and-seafood-heavy menu. The jumbo lump crab cakes are the best in town, without compare. And the house-cured meat platter includes smoky strips of lardo - a rare find - and tangy housemade pickles that make you wish for a jar to take home. Bonus: The sexy bar has a piano player in the evenings if you really want to impress a date.
