Nundini Chef’s Table

We have been several times now. The exterior does not look very inviting, but the food is great. Inside, there is an Italian market as well.

They have great Italian food including pasta, entrees, and all the classic appetizers, soups, and salads. The desserts are yummy too (although you can also grab gelato from the market). The first time, we ordered from the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu and the second time off the regular menu. We had an issue with the speed of service on the second trip, but I think that was a fluke.

WOULD YOU GO BACK? Yes.

Glass Wall

We had wanted to visit Glass Wall for a while. It is one of the more upscale restaurants in The Heights. The atmosphere is very cool: the decor modern with an open feel. Our reservation was for 6:30 – by the time we were leaving it was very busy so I’d recommend making a reservation (which you can online – very handy).

The food was delicious. Each menu item had a suggested wine pairing which made it very easy to select. I started with the Glass Wall salad. Anything with goat cheese is fine by me. The greens were fresh and the vinaigrette very flavorful and not too heavy. I ordered the Veal Scallopini for my entree. The breading was very light and the veal was cooked wonderfully. The mashed potatoes were creamy and flavorful. The steamed spinach was ok (but in general, not my favorite presentation of spinach).

Andrew ordered the Morroccan Spiced Lollipop Lamb Chops for a starter. There were 3 lamb chops and rice on the plate. The lamb melted in your mouth. For his entree, he ordered the Hereford Beef Tenderloin. The meat was cooked perfectly and the sides complemented the beef.

Overall, the dishes were flavorful but not too large a portion. We didn’t save room for dessert but will have to next time we visit. The service was good – as you’d expect for a high end restaurant like this one.

WOULD YOU GO BACK? Yes.
