Aldo el Sharif Is Back at Aldo's Cucina Italiana

1 of 30
In the late 1990s, chef Aldo el Sharif was serving meals to rival those at Tony's at Aldo's Con Amore, turning out dishes like albacore tuna with crabmeat and Frangelico for $30 and luscious veal medallions for $40. These days, you'll find el Sharif at Aldo's Cucina Italiana, just north of The Woodlands. It's a world away those notoriously high prices of the ‘90s but it's fitting somehow, as el Sharif relaxes into that so-called vale of years. PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
