Masraff’s new ‘Baked’ Crab Cake.
One of Uptown’s finest restaurants has a new, seasonally inspired menu to carry us through the winter! Masraff’s classic Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes have been enhanced for the holidays, as have several mainstay attractions. Choose from a ‘chipotle’ veal chop to a luscious lobster cannelloni and more…
I recommend pairing ANY of these eats with a selection of fine wines from around the world, or tempting holiday cocktails from the bar. This continues to be one of my very favorite spots in all of Houston for drinks in a classy, low key environment.
The family behind the upscale food & drink is just as wonderful. Tony Masraff, himself a survivor of prostate cancer, has raised millions with his non-profit, TPCR, to raise awareness and provide funding for a non-invasive cure. They’ve identified a cure in lab mice–FDA trials on humans start this spring. The cure appears to be very close!
For a memorable meal from even better people, I invite you to make a reservation with your family this holiday season. Here’s what’s cookin’! 🙂
