THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Eyes Over Texas Restaurant Review: On a clear day, you can see forever atop the Tower of the Americas. The view of your plate may be of less immediate interest, suggesting that the generic revolving restaurant reputation contains a kernel of truth. Nevertheless, once you’ve made the effort to ascend to Eyes Over Texas, there are a few disarming dishes to reward the effort. The Gulf Coast crab cake is surprisingly subtle; the seared, peppered ahi might meet expectations; and the maple-glazed quail, though decidedly dark, is also worth appetizer attention. Stay away from the saké-glazed tuna with asparagus and marinated cucumbers, but consider a double-cut pork chop with a honey-apple glaze and corn fritters. Service can be sporadic during the typical two-and-a-half-rotation repast, but much can be redeemed by dessert---especially if it’s the house-made chocolate torte. Suggestion: Head for the stationary bar; have an appetizer and/or dessert; call it a day.
