The Original Ninfa's On Navigation

Houston, TX

The original. The best. Get queso flameado for the table, mixed fajitas with refried black beans and margaritas by the pitcher

D'Amico's Italian Market Cafe

D'Amico's Italian Market Cafe

Houston, TX

This super cute market/cafe concept in the Rice Village is casual and family friendly. Stepping inside feels like you're in an Italian deli -- with house-made pastas, cured meats, cheeses in cold cases, as well as shelves of dry and canned goods. The seating is comfortable and quaint -- think red-gingham tablecloths, and no-nonsense diner-type stoneware plates. The crawfish ravioli is excellent, as are the wood fired pizzas. The fantastic patio fills up on sunny days and cool evenings as well.

The green curry dishes are outstanding and addictive. The menu is expansive and the service is no nonsense. Portions are large enough for two. Excellent spot for a quick lunch.

The parking lot's always full at Monica Pope's restaurant - with good reason. The food is top-notch, but don't miss the cocktails, either.
