HOUReview

A’Bouzy is one of those rare places that you could go to as a jumping off point for a night out, or to recoup the next day after the “one more drink” you suggested turned into three. This River Oaks spot has a big patio, a bar that’s always packed, and 1,000 different wines to choose from, including more than 250 types of Champagne and sparkling. While you could go here just to drink, they also serve small plates like lamb lollipops and baked oysters, along with larger entrees. If it happens to be one of the rare occasions when the humidity takes the day/night off, make sure to grab a spot outside.
