It was a glass of Brunello that changed my future forever! And, after spending one afternoon lounging at a wine maker’s home in Tuscany, a book I purchased by Kevin Zraly — my first foray into wine — that truly piqued my passion and has affected my lifelong outlook as an eager-to-learn, wine enthusiast.
Soak up the sexy atmosphere at what’s consistently ranked as one of Houston’s top restaurants — Masraff’s on the Boulevard. Masraff’s continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Houston. Watch for their fabulous wine dinners! A recent gathering saw a multi-course meal with Darioush wines and Darioush Khaledi himself!
Enjoying an incredible meal at Masraff’s on Post Oak Boulevard just got even better. They’ve added a cool new ‘enomatic’ wine dispenser, which means you’ll be able to create your own wine pairing meal every time you dine there!
Navigating a big wine list and choosing a wine that pairs perfectly with your meal can be intimidating unless you’ve had a ton of experience. Wine sommeliers are some of the most knowledgeable folks in the world when it comes to wine, and there’s an annual competition in Houston that lets the best of the best compete–The Iron Sommelier.
Much obliged to Masraff’s: They’re popping the cork for you on Valentine’s Day with some fabulous recommendations on bubbly, but more importantly, some little known secrets about champagne that make a whole lot of difference! According to house sommelier Ben Roberts, all wine tasters look for a sense of the “place” that a particular wine is from.
This is the place to SEE and BE SEEN. At Masraff’s on the boulevard, comfort meets class. Whether it’s the elegant waterfall the sits out on its spacious patio, or the impressive, elevated fireplace inside, I always find a reason to come back!
Known for its beautiful patio with the relaxing waterfall and its sleek indoor decor (complete with floating fireplace!), Masraff’s on the boulevard always has something enticing. I was an instant fan with their garlic-seared calamari and their pristine white, delicious crab cake.
