It’s always a rockin’ good time at Sambuca. This modern American Grill in the heart of downtown Houston keeps things casually classy with live music every night – that’s right – 7 nights a week! From classic rock and sultry vocals, to pop and top 40 hits. Come for dinner, stay for dancing! I love this sexy spot…
The food is incredible with an ambience to match. Lounge at the bar sipping one of their signature martinis, or request a private booth for two for a more intimate, imaginative dining experience. Date night indeed! Executive Chef Willis Allen associates the place to the supper clubs of yore…you come, have a few cocktails, dine in and enjoy yourself (as well as the live entertainment) for long into the night. And he wouldn’t have it any other way.
Known for their portioned artisan pizzas and small plates made for sharing, Chef Allen shared a few of the stars off the dinner menu with Goodtaste cameras. Sizzling samplers like the Shrimp Brochette — three U-15 shrimp wrapped in prosciutto and smoked gouda, atop red pepper chutney served with shishito peppers you see above. Um, YUM!
