After being absent from my hometown Houston for several years, I hosted a Friday afternoon lunch table for old friends and relatives. We could not have had a better time. The restaurant was just perfect, and the three martini lunch special made for a festive afternoon. The food was fantastic and the service by Marcello was impeccable. If you are looking for that traditional, old world professional service, quality food and ambiance, this is the place in Houston. I have been fortunate in my travels to have dined in many nice restaurants. I would rate Brennans right up there at the top.
