Beautiful views of the wooded grounds of The Houstonian Hotel give this place a wonderful atmosphere. The restaurant's interior has an upscale French-provincial feel about it, with the menu blending cuisines of the Mediterranean, North Africa, America and the Middle East. There's a complimentary hummus-and-olives plate, and the kitchen is as comfortable with a simple roasted tomato soup as with crab cakes, the more complex seared tuna loin or the herb-crusted rack of lamb, all of which allow the chef to shine.
