I work in this building and the Founders Square Deli is awesome! Nasreen is the fabulous chef that runs the restaurant and the best bet is always her special. Every Monday she makes Indian food that's out of this world! She also does a mediterranean plate (sometimes on Thursdays) that's wonderful also. I highly recommend this place!
This is the new neighborhood hang out in Lake Highlands! My top recommendations are the calamari as an appetizer and the etouffe, gumbo or jambalaya as an entree. There's a full bar although the wine list and beers on tap vary depending on what they have that week. When the weather's nice, we very much enjoy the patio.
Barcadia is a great scene! I can't think of anything more entertaining than adults playing drunk Jenga at midnight! The patio is perfect, the drinks are good and the appetizer foods are great!
Lakewood Landing's sign says that it is an upscale dive. I would say that it's more dive and less upscale but I still love it! The juke box is really great and if you get hungry, order a grilled cheese with tomatoes and onions...you won't be disappointed.
I really enjoyed Circle Grill Restaurant. It's a very large "home cooking" type joint that reminds me a little of Sam's in Fairview down I45. They have a very good selection of side dishes and I would definitely recommend just getting sides if you aren't too hungry.
Trader Vic's has a swanky 1960's Hawaiin theme that I love! The drink menu takes about 30 minutes to read (both because of the length and because of the dark mood lighting). The drinks are very fun and often come in coconuts or tiki glasses. I had one that had a stick of rock candy in it. For food, I love to get a mix of appetizers. The beef cho cho, calamari, and tuna poke are all winners.
The entire Nobu experience is a good time. I've been several times and always with someone who is an "expert" and orders for the table. The bite-sized chili peppers are a great appetizer. I also love the sea bass and the yellow tail with jalapeno. I would say that the food is overpriced for what you get but still very good.
Rob has been coming to our house for several years now and I can't say enough good things about him and his business. He even was able to assist us in removing a mother and three baby raccoons from our attic! I was terrified and he made me feel so much better. He is so friendly and professional and even comes out on the weekends for our regular treatments. Highly recommended!
Botanica has been mowing our yard for the past few years. They do an excellent job and the prices are reasonable. It's so nice to come home every Thursday to a nicely mowed yard. They also clean out our flower beds for us when they get overgrown. Highly recommended!
I've been going to the Q since I was a little girl for the yummy burgers. Someone once told me that they're marinated in wine so maybe that's the secret. I like to get a beer, burger and fries and play a little pool. Very fun place!
