THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Houston's Restaurant Review

: Houston's, a 22-year-old chain of 40 restaurants with a successful formula for basic American food, has taken off big in the lower level of the Citicorp Center. Jammed like a subway at rush hour with attractive, chic, young professionals meeting and mating around a large and handsome horseshoe-shaped bar, this darkly-lit spot with large booths turns out pretty good food that's pretty pricey. If you go during the after-work cocktail crush---and if you're over 35---you probably will not enjoy the high-energy buzz of those attempting to connect. We like the signature creamy spinach and artichoke dip. Houston's is known for its barbecued ribs and they don't disappoint---unless you are a Texan. (For the $23 they charge here, in Texas you could probably get the whole pig.) However, the nicely cooked and seasoned Danish pork ribs will require action with your knife and fork. Choose the excellent crispy french fries to accompany the ribs or the specially ground chuck burgers.
