THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Zula Restaurant Review

: Inspired by Bellagio in Las Vegas, Zula is decked in cool colors, mostly from the hues of a peacock’s feathers. Purple is prominent, as are deep teal and golds, all brilliantly displayed in whimsically oversized banquettes and contemporary torchières. Co-owner David Edwards, who also owns the Mercury Room Lounge, boldly describes Zula as a place to see and be seen. A huge center staircase to the second level of the historic building and giant angled mirrors surrounding the restaurant help accomplish this goal. For a luxe beginning, order the foie gras with fig-blackberry compote or the shrimp barbecue Creole-style. For a seafood entrée with panache, we like the Gulf red snapper with mussels and fennel. Lunch on the Royale burger with cheese, a nod to the film Pulp Fiction, or the lobster Club sandwich. Besides catering to the office lunch crowd, Zula is also aimed at the lively nighttime scene downtown.

BEST RESTAURANT IN DOWNTOWN HOUSTON
by DAVIDCONNOR on Wed Mar 17, 2010 11:18 am
 
As always, Zula never disappoints. We were a table of eight. Very good meal, excellent service and skillful wine pairings. We were most impressed with the level of knowledge and service coupled with the decidedly unstuffy attitude. There is no other restaurant that combines the elegance of food with a completely relaxed atmosphere as beautifully as ZULA. The service is always a combination of knowledgeable and attentive. The $40 Prix Fixe menu is a steal. We could eat here every night and love it every time. My only complaint is they have a "no split checks" policy. Not much of a gripe though.
