This friendly neighborhood bistro-style cafe in River Oaks has warmth and charm that seem to relax everyone. Daily Review Cafe's food is eclectic, as is the wine and beer list. The menu is large and fascinating, and it's hard to order just one thing. The tortilla-crusted shrimp appetizer is a standout, but then again, a simple dish of baked brie served with grilled apples may be just the thing. Thai fish tacos and famous chicken potpie also give comfort. There's also Southern-fried chicken and jumbo lump crab cakes. Since this is a small place, there's often a wait, but it will be worth it.
