    Best Japanese Restaurant - Kaneyama Japanese Restaurant

    The difficult truth is this: Most native Japanese never, ever have a chance to dine in a truly great Japanese restaurant, of the sort one finds in Kyoto and a few other locations in Japan. The classic kai-seki-ryori dinner is an aesthetic experience ...

    Best Place to Indulge Anglophilia - The Black Labrador

    This redoubt of vintage Britannia is dead-on in every sense but two: The pub grub is not the slightest bit grubby, and the pints are cold. Shepherd's pie, beef Wellington, fish and chips, and West Highland cheese soup are but a few of the outstanding...

    Best Vietnamese Restaurant - Nga's

    Houston has the best Vietnamese restaurants in the country -- the problem is picking one. We like Nga's, a little unassuming joint with a friendly atmosphere and a hip clientele. There are all kinds of discoveries on this menu, but the waiter tells u...

    Best Sit-Down Breakfast - Goode Co. Texas Burgers & Taqueria

    Best Place to Pick Up a Slightly Worn Copy of the Marquis de Sade's The 120 Days of Sodom - Detering Book Gallery Inc.

    Best Atmosphere - The Mercantile

    Atmosphere is a deeply subjective thing. What may delight Zippy the Pinhead could depress Bug-Eyed Earl. Or vice versa on a different day. Additionally, Houston tends to celebrate the shiny and new and to destroy the mellow and old, where atmosphere ...

    Best Restaurant Playground - Joe's Crab Shack

    Best Barbecue Joint - Pizzitola's

    This is one of the oldest barbecue joints in the city. When legendary pit boss John Davis founded the place in the early 1930s, it was called Shepherd Drive Bar-B-Q. Davis's secret recipe for zingy sauce died with him, but the business, including the...
