Just when it seemed like this old sailor was about to drop anchor in that last lagoon – a fresh wind took me back to sea. If you’re in Houston with a significant other going to one of the concert venues around Sugarland let me suggest the perfect place for avant or apré performance – Fernando’s. It is an excellent restaurant for a couple; the tables are not jammed on top of each other, the service was excellent without being obtrusive (and yes – as soon as I walked in I could hear Ella Fitzgerald singing “You will be free, to gaze at me, and talk of love” from Fernando’s Hideaway). The food was great, the wine parings sublime. Fernando’s is a Latin Steakhouse. My wife had the steak which was cooked to a flawless medium rare. I had the Ceviche the first time and the Paella the second. (This is a seasonal dish but well worth the wait.) I’ll tie up at this port anytime.
