We decided to check out Capone's Restaurant and Bar (4304 Westheimer) last night. Not only does the place close at 2 a.m., but it's like happy hour all night long. This place really should be called a Capone's Bar and Restaurant. It has what looks like Playboy models working behind the bar making solid cocktails.

If that isn't enough, Capone's also offers wood-fired bar grub. We have always been a fan of real wood-fired ovens -- we'd even go so far as to say that the best way to bake a pizza is to fire it in a wood-burning oven. We had the "Hot New Yorker," a cracker-thin-crust pizza with sausage and pickled jalapeños. We will vouch for this pizza.

We were about to make this our new favorite late-night spot until we noticed, between staring at large, perky fake boobs, that we were in the middle of a sausage fest, and we don't mean the meat on our pizza. If you're a cougar looking for fresh meat, this is the place for you. Especially if you have a new pair of plastic boobs.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
