Some of the best locations in Houston for celebrating you anniversary, new job, or promotion can be found in many corners of Houston. The dining scene is the hidden gem of Houston. Just a few great restaurants you can find:

Rouge - located at 812 Westheimer - This "New American Cuisine" restaurant is owned and operated by local legend Aldo Elsharif. His sauces ensure that every plate is clean before it leaves your table. The wines are priced at retail (and not restaurant) levels - but that doesn't mean the quality has been skimped. This is one of the few upscale restaurants in Houston where your wine won't necessarily cost more then the entire meal. You can have a private dinner for two in the dining room, sit and have a relaxing appetizer in the adjacent bar or rent out the upstairs ballroom for your reception or holiday party.

Mark's - located at 1658 Westheimer - This "American Cuisine" restaurant is recognized by many in Houston as the pinnacle of dining. A wide variety of items on the ever changing menu ensures that you'll have a great meal to go along with the surprising interior. This restaurant is actually located inside a renovated church. Every seat gives you a great view of the building (and the amazing wine room). A bit pricey, but with food this good... you'll come away smiling.

Rainbow Lodge - located at 1 Birdsall drive - Some of the best "contemporary Gulf Coast regional cuisine" in Houston can be found here. Perhaps one of the most unique restaurants in Houston, the decor transports you to a mountain lodge in the forest - even though you're in the middle of the 4th largest city in the nation! You'll be able to sit back and enjoy the award winning food and wine while viewing the incomparable views.
