Looking for love and a good meal and wanting to find all the right places in Houston? Well, here's a compendium of what we've written up before, so have at it. Some of these posts are tied to specific dates and celebrations, but really, when isn't romance in season?
The 20 Most Romantic Restaurants In Houston
When wooing a new love, basking in the warmth of a longterm relationship or even just having quiet time with a friend, everyone needs places to go that promise to be intimate and classic. Excellent service and minimal dining distractions are a must.
It's that time of year again, Houston! Love is in the air!
No wait, that's just the smell of the refineries surrounding our fair city. No matter. This year, Valentine's Day falls on a Friday, which means couples will be out in force all weekend jockeying with each other for prime seats at one of the many local restaurants featuring three-day Valentine's Day specials.
Most people have their own, definite and occasionally unique ideas of what is "romantic." For example, an old friend of mine once tried to woo a girl by making her lasagna in his home to the sounds of the most romantic music he could think of: the soundtrack to Gladiator. (Long story short, they ended up dating for years.)
There are ten types of people in this world: Those who understand binary and those who don't. No...wait. There are two types of people in this world: Those who take their partner out to eat on Valentine's Day and those who wait for the mad crush of romance to end before venturing back out to nice restaurants. This year, that means restaurant dining rooms both the weekend prior to and the weekend after Valentine's Day will likely be saturated with flower-bearing suitors. And cheers to them!
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.
