Best of Leiva

We are SO fortunate in Houston to have a lot of fun and unique things to eat, see and do.  I thought I would post some of the best places I have tried so far.  Let me know if you have any "Best of Houston" places and I will be sure to try them out.  Also, let me know if you try any of these places!

Best Date Night Place:
Alt tagCoppa - Coppa is an eclecticly decorated italian restaurant with unique dishes and great wine prices.  Alex and I first learned about Coppa from Jason and Samantha, but have gone back numerous times and absolutely LOVE it.  I even celebrated by 29th birthday there last year. 

Raven Grill: Raven Grill is a great quaint little restaurant, with a really calm atomosphere and the food is fabulous.  We learned about Raven Grill from Mikey and Erika and LOVE IT.

Best Lunch Spot(s):

Arpi's Phoenicia Deli and Coffeehouse: Arpi's is a mediterranean place that has homemade hummus and bottomless pita bread, both crispy and soft.  I haven't tried it yet for dinner, but want to.

Zoe's Kitchen: I frequent Zoe's a lot and tend to order the Protein Power Plate over steamed veggies thanks to Amanda! It is delish!


Ruggles Green: Ruggles Green is my ALL TIME favorite lunch or dinner

Best Happy Hour:

Benjy's: They have everything for $5 so it is a steal and oh so good.  They make a great Blood Orange Margarita!
