We may not have California's cool Summer days, but we now have one of it's world renowned restaurants. Valentino, located in Hotel Derek, at the corner of Loop 610 and Westheimer, is the sister establishment to Valentino in Santa Monica. Sleek, contemporary and Italian, this addition to Houston's dinning scene offers a special occasion dinning room and the more casual and eclectic bistro, vin bar. We especially like the "primi" or small plates featured in the wine bar along with the extensive by-the-glass wine list. Either way, the food is from a sophisticated Italian heaven! Join the angels, and enjoy lunch, dinner or a late night small bite.
A DJ on Friday and Saturday nights (after 10pm) makes this the place "to see and be seen"
on the weekends. See you there!
