If you haven't been to the Houston Aquarium Restaurant yet, then let me say it is one of the best family fun adventures you can take. My cousin invited us to her home for Halloween fun and dinner out. Late in the afternoon we headed to her place, and after dark she took us to one of the nicest neighborhoods in Houston for trick or treat. The homes were gorgeous and many of the neighbors had tables set up on their lawns piled high with goodies for the kids. After a couple blocks of this, we hopped back into the car and headed off to the aquarium.
Maybe the food wasn't gourmet, but it was still very good. I had to laugh at my kid piling his plate up with fried calamari, he certainly didn't know what it was. I had a few oysters, some stuffed crab, (which was very good) and a big piece of fish. My cousin had stuffed and fried shrimp. The cocktail was wonderful though...a nice and very dry gin martini, made just right. But what we loved most was the tranquility we experienced just sitting together and watching the fish swim around.
