restaurants near md anderson

My husband and I will be meeting my sister at md anderson for her evaluation. I believe we will be staying at the Crowne Plaza ( waiting to hear from the med center for hotel reservation info). Can anyone help with nearby restaurant info? We're looking for somewhere with good food but not a loud bar scene type of place. She's jusst been diagnosed, and needless to say, we're shell shocked. We always use TA for vacations, and the help has always been spot on. This is a different type of trip for us and we could really use help from our TA "family" thanks.

We visit the restaurants in Rice Village, which is about a 10 minute drive from the medical district. Cafe Rabelais is my favorite for fab French food, quiet atmosphere, and a great glass of wine after the tortuous drive from Austin. There's a type of food for every taste.

You might want to check out other hotels closer to the medical center since most if not all offer a medical rate. We stay at the Best Western, with rooms that have a microwave and fridge.

Good luck.

Lots of restaurants of all types within walking distance, including some nice deli's. As the other post stated, if you go the short distance to Rice Village you will find several more from Thai, to Indian to Japanese to ........

Kirby & University Blvd is the center.

I'd recommend either (a) D'Amico's Italian Café, 5510 Morningside Drive, Houston. 77005, 713.526.3400, (b) Benjy's, 2424 Dunstan Road, Houston 77005 713.522.7602 or (c) Cafe Rabalais as noted in a prior post. Price goes up from (a) to (c) a bit, but food and atmosphere is roughly the same. All of these are in Rice Village. There are lots of options in the Medical Center itself for lunch, but these three meet the objective of getting away for dinner. Call for directions if you're not GPS equipped. All three are fairly easy to find.

D'Amico's has a good deal for its lunch buffet.

If you just want to hang out and enjoy a coffee with a little snack, try Croissant Brioche French Bakery & Cafe. Bunch of newspapers scattered around and outdoor tables. When we've wanted a break, Croissant Brioche has been our place.
