Samba Grille Breaks the Steakhouse Mold Wide Open

1 of 25


The steakhouse is located in downtown's Bayou Place, which is once again buzzing with a new theater - Sundance Cinemas - and a slew of new clubs.

Steakhouses downtown are plentiful. Houston's central business district is a natural host to these types of meat-heavy, suit-filled, high-testosterone establishments, perfect for entertaining clients or out-of-town guests. Come to Texas and get a steak, whether you visit a standard like downtown's Strip House or a churrascaria like Nelore. Samba Grille is not one of those places. This quietly elegant South American steakhouse in downtown's Theater District is something altogether different. PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
