New World Latin Cuisine

Americas in HoustonDinner at Americas in Houston, my second time here. The day was unusually windy and chilly, and since I was staying at the Hilton Post Oak, the only place I dared venture out for dinner was this restaurant right across the street. The entire block here is being reconstructed and only Hermes of Paris and Americas are open in this block. Americas is the place to go for fine South American dining. The place has a funky interior, very unlike Churrascos which I had reviewed in my previous visit to this city, and which shares the same owners!

Americas in HoustonI ordered a glass of La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir with my starter, a Peruvian style Ceviche that contained sushi grade seafood served in a carved pineapple. The ceviche was very fresh and tangy and went very well with the wine.

Americas in HoustonI ordered Churrasco for my entree, an 8 oz medium-rare beef tenderloin; the meat was most tender and flavorful.

I ended my dinner with the The Original Tres Leches, a cake soaked in three kinds of milk. So moist, so wonderful! I highly recommend you try this dessert at least once.

Americas is located at 1800 Post Oak Blvd, Houston 77056. Phone: 713.961.1492
