Charivari was one of my favorite restaurants in Texas. In part for Chef Schuster's excellent food. But also --- for any of you who have loved that "small European restaurant" (say, in Germany) --- it is like coming home. Recently Charivari was closed, but as...More

This is a great restaurant for business lunches because the wait staff is not constantly interrupting. Their menu seems to be influenced with eastern european recipes. Very healthy. I should remember to visit more often, especially if the meeting is with downtown clients.

A range of Romanian-Hungarian food, in fact foods that you find mainly in Transylvania. Snitzel is good- I will never work to fry it home. They have caviar-the real deal- at a decent price. Good bread. Decent service.
